Button Boutique #1

Welcome! Today marks my very first special feature for DeNami Design ~ Button Boutique! I will admit I have a HUGE fondness for buttons and try to work them into my card designs when I can. My plans for this feature are to inspire you with projects using buttons in unique ways. Then transforming that idea into a card or tag! I have about a million ideas floating around in my noggin, but I've narrowed it down to six features. One a month from now through June. Lets get started shall we...

When I was in first grade one of my very best friends had mittens on a string that ran through the sleeves of her coat. Now to the 6 year old little girl that I was I thought they were simply fabulous!!!  Those little wooly mittens dangling at the ends of her sleeves as we played on the playground were the inspiration for my first project. Honestly I don't think she ever actually wore those mittens!

I've taken these splendid DeNami products and turned them into this sweet little project!

 The beautiful stamped image is from the ornamental centerpieces set.

I am so pleased with the way these turned out and can see many uses for them. Ornaments, garlands, wreaths or even the front of your card designs! Look how absolutely sweet they look with my tiny skates!!!

Finally I transformed this idea into a card with the addition of the mini open button image and a portion of a sentiment stamp. (supply list below)

Thanks for stopping by the Button Boutique today! You can find a beautiful assortment of buttons at the DeNami Design Store. I would love to see your button adorned mittens if you give this project a go.  Send me an email with your link and I'll stop by for a visit!  


NOT LISTED: white, kraft, warm brown inks, Rick Rack felt, decorative papers, Gelly Roll white pen, Gelly Roll glitter pen
