button bows

Here’s what I was doing with those giant buttons: button bows! I attached the buttons to elastic cord to make a polished, simple, reusable gift wrap. I would love to set myself up with a roll of white paper, a row of pretty washi tapes and a bin of these button bows, and get rid of the giant pile of disorganized papers and tangled ribbons I currently have going on in my hall closet.

I’ll be selling these at the Kansas City Clay Guild Holiday Sale, and probably on Etsy, too. I’ll keep you posted about the Etsy shop.

  1. Hi Amy,
    I love your giant buttons…surface decorations and glaze too!! Especially with the cording for gift wrap. What a great idea! Decorating brown craft paper for gift wrap is one of my favorites…now I need some buttons.
