Back to School Button Boutique

Hello and welcome to my September Button Boutique! days, school days, good old golden rule days!!! Guess you know where my mind has taken me this month.  

Yep that's right school days! I was wandering around Hobby Lobby a few weeks back and came upon a flat wooden apple. It was already painted and on sale for a mere 50 cents! This was a simple project to complete. The colors and lines were already there. I simply added glue dots to the buttons and put them in place. Even the white highlight was on the wooden piece. Aren't these Ruby Red Boutique Buttons pretty!!??!! If you zoom in on this project you can see the fabulous variety that comes in the package. I think this would be a sweet gift for a teacher. Put a magnet on the back or even her room number on it for the classroom door! The apple is just about 4" tall, such a cute size!

Now that the apple was complete I set out to make a coordinating card. I reached for my sweet little DeNami apple from the apples and pears petit four set. This is the open one colored with markers. I love this sentiment, so perfect for so many people in our lives. I used a simple row of matching red buttons as a border. Some October Afternoon paper and die cut sticky back cork add interest to my projects.   

One tip I would like to give you is to coordinate your card and gift with like products. I made the small tag to pull some of the colors on the card to my apple. I snipped out one of the pencils and stapled on a scrap of the OA paper. This makes the whole package more unified and pleasing. I'm kind of a stickler about that!

Now would any of you like a free jar of pretty assorted DeNami Boutique Buttons! Well friends I have one up for grabs!! Leave a comment on this post on my blog, My Paper Tales, by midnight on Sunday Sept. 22nd. One lucky commenter will win this cute prize!! I'll pick that random winner and post them on Monday September 23rd. **Please be sure that if you leave a comment I have some way to reach you if you are the winner, otherwise I might have to pick another** 

Thanks so much for stopping by today, we appreciate your visit.
