Book Craft – Tiny Button Bouquet


I actually got this idea from a Book Riot Book Fetish post.  Unlike the original blogger, I don’t have a ton of off-white antique buttons on hand, but I did have a box of buttons in those little plastic bags that come with shirts.  Plus I wanted more color, and I only have one shape of flower punch, so I thought I’d do a miniature version, just to see how it goes.  And I love the results!  I used my much up-cycled Shakespeare volume, my single flower punch, four brightly colored buttons, and some green floral wire.  I decoupaged the paper first to give it more strength, then just kinda wired everything together.  When I finished I found a pretty blue shot glass and filled it with glass seed beads and voila!

I live in a Chicago suburb with my husband and a house full of books. Book collecting, reading, and reviewing consume my life. I have a special affinity for all things Alice in Wonderland. I began my education at Carthage College, wanting to be an English teacher. Eventually I decided that Carthage and I weren’t a good fit anymore, so I transferred to North Park University, where I realized I didn’t want to be a teacher. So I finished my education with a degree in English with a writing concentration. I was always a voracious reader and wrote my first review in April 2007. I don’t remember why exactly I decided to write a review, only that I had just finished The Agony and the Ecstasy and had a strong feeling that I needed to express how I felt about it. This inspired me to write reviews about each book I wrote and after posting on Amazon for two years, I was invited into the Amazon Vine program. I am also an active reviewer/member of Goodreads and enjoy being an active member of the online book community.
