So as you all probably know by now I love buttons. I made this letter S a few years ago and I still love it. Buttons are so much fun to go through and sort and reminisce about. I think they are one of my favorite crafting item.
So I made another craft with buttons. This time I made button magnets.
In addition to the crafting I decided to reopen my Etsy store and sell some of the things I make here on this blog. Stop by and check it out: TakeTimeToCreate.
Here is how you can make your own button magnets
~ Buttons (so many buttons!!! And this is only a small portion of what my mom gave me! She is the best!)
~ Glue (I am using my trusty E-6000)
~ Clippers or something to cut the shank off
~ prep the buttons. You might need to clean them a bit or snip off the shank. Be careful because pieces of plastic might go flying.
~ Stack the buttons to create a different looks. Glue the stacks as necessary.
~ Glue the back of the button and add the magnet
~ Wait for them to dry and then put them up on your fridge. You can see I use them to hold pictures of Cole. I love his monster and dino magnets he made when he was little. So cute! Sigh he is not so little anymore.
Stay tuned for DIYs on how I made the little canvas magnets and the bottle glass magnets.
Here are some of the completed magnet sets that I have on Etsy just to give you an idea of what you can do with magnets and buttons. These make great house warming gifts!
