Charming Button Bracelet

I am totally in love with A Muse Studio's Not Your Grandma's Bag of Buttons. These fabulous buttons are available in twelve colors that coordinate with a|s papers and inks, as well as in clear, and are sold by the bagful. Each bag of  colored buttons contains approximately 250 buttons in assorted shapes and sizes. Clear button bags contain approximately 150 assorted size buttons.


 What to do with all those buttons? Well, in addition to adding them to your cards and layouts as embellishments (they make perfect centers for paper flowers), you can make jewelry with them!


I joined a Handmade Gift Exchange and wanted to make something special for my gift partner using my A Muse Studio supplies. After searching the internet for some button jewelry inspiration I decided to create a charm bracelet. I used Buttercup buttons and some basic jewelry findings.  


I also made this coordinating little box to put it in...


All ready for giving...

I think it makes a cute little gift and I hope that my gift partner will enjoy it!

Thanks for stopping by!
