Let me begin by telling you how much I adore buttons. I love how they can update a boring cardi or make a pretty birthday card or whatever. A few years ago, I bought a large tin of vintage buttons on Ebay. It’s one of the most exciting things I’ve ever got from there. Somebody was selling them, I’m guessing, as part of a clear out of an old lady’s house and it was a real collection. I can’t imagine ever running out of buttons whilst I’ve got that tin to keep me supplied. Anyway, I digress slightly.
You’ll literally need nothing more than some flat backed buttons, a few plain hair grips (I used ones I bought from Ebay which have the little round metal disc for attaching findings – cost about £1 for 10) and a hot glue gun. I don’t think I need to tell you much more than that!
