I was at the Japanese dollar store the other day, looking for binder rings for my China travel mini (which is all done, by the way - all photographed and ready to be blogged about!). I was in the sewing section where I found a button cover thingamajig.
|The caption makes me laugh. If you can't read it, it says, "Easy! Miracle! Original button." While I wouldn't quite call it a miracle, it sure is fun.|
They remind me of fabric covered brads, except they're 3/4" buttons. Here's a picture of the backside.
They were really quick and simple to make, except I didn't have enough strength to use the tool that the package came with to push the backside onto the button. I ended up getting a hammer from the garage and pounding it a few times, and it was easy enough. I don't know what I'll do with them yet, but I'm sure they'll end up on a scrapbook layout or project soon :)
