Button Book



I've finished my button book and am just starting to sort out the photos so here are the first three.
All the pages are round, like a lot of buttons.
The top cover is made from hand painted and stamped paper, I used handmade button shaped stamps amongst other things. The letters were made from fun foam with art work stuck on top. these were stitched to the background. The 'o's in the book are art buttons, made from clear buttons and my art work. I used blanket stitch around the edges, this joins two pages together and hides all the backs of pages.
I used music and the excess paper from a sheet of postage stamps which I coloured slightly with an ink pad. I created all the different buttons. See the top of the page for an art button tutorial.

  1. How cute this idea is! The pages being round is perfect. Both your book cover and the music page are so cleverly done. Awesome that you've made all the buttons too!
