invasion of the giant buttons

Remember these?
Well, you can probably guess now what I did with them. Giant buttons!
I sanded, primed, painted them, and then hot glued some ribbon in the holes I had Rory drill for me in the middles. I hung them up with those awesome Disc-hangers. (got mine on Ebay)
I LOVE how they look on the wall, they make me smile every time I glance over there!
Speaking of craft rooms… ;)…I put up some updated pics on my crafty space post, so go check it out!
I also have a button on my sidebar for future updates!
Cause you KNOW I can’t leave well enough alone. I always like to change things up!

  32. Hi, Jess! I’ve made my own version of your buttons (much more little, but “giant” buttons also) and I’ve link your post in my blog. Thanks for the inspiration.

  33. Hi, Jess, you “saved” my life with this post. I have to make a present (my boss’s wife!) to someone who loves sewing too, and it has been the perfect gift. I have framed three buttons. Here you have the link to my post. Thank you very much again!
