Button Boutique #4

Hey there! It's time for another set of Button Boutique projects at DeNami Design. The spring flowers are finally beginning to bloom in my neck of the woods. Before you know it butterflies will be fluttering about too. With that thought in mind, I put together a fun project that would be cute for Mother's Day, a teacher's desk or perched on your window sill!



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



Aren't they fun! I started with simple wooden spools picked up at any craft store and grounded them with some pretty patterned paper die cuts. As you can see each of the spools is decorated a bit differently using blue stripes washi tape, boutique buttons, twine and the tulip border stamp. The tops of the spools were made to look like flowers with the solid leaf sprig fussy cut then added for extra movement at the base of my design.
 


I stamped the full view butterfly twice for each spool, fussy cut them, then added spiraled wire stems and wire antenna between the two with a foam dot and score tape. I gently curved the wings to give them a fluttery look! Of course I had to give them a little body made from a threaded button. 

Next I took this idea and transformed it into a card. Following the same design, a dimensional butterfly flutters above a button flower! The large dot swirls stamp replaces the wire stem and the washi tape helps to anchor my design. 
 
 
I hope I've inspired you to dig into your button collection today and let a touch of spring flutter into you home! Button supply running low? No worries since the DeNami store has a beautiful selection to choose from.
