Button Display

I love buttons! And this is why I was delighted to find a lovely (and very simple!) way of displaying some of my specimens on a blog in my Google Reader this morning! 

This was a download from designsponge and I was a little concerned when reading the comments that most people were having difficulty printing it using IE.  Fortunately I didn't have a problem, although I did have to do a print preview and reduce the print size.

I cheated too and didn't stitch my buttons down, mine are just stuck down with good ol' temporary glue dots.

There was another lovely pattern for displaying ribbons that I printed but I haven't finished that craft yet.  (Tonight I've been looking at sites showing me courses on how to do Photoshop digital scrapbooking).

I'm pleased with how nice this looks and will be putting both (when I've finished!) on my attic room wall.

See you tomorrow,

From one night owl back to the other one - great work! It looks brilliant. Can't wait to see the ribbon one too. Jaqui x

I love designsponge - there are so many inspirational ideas on there. I am constantly book-marking stuff to do later (and the list is now huge!) - your button work is really pretty - look forward to seeing the ribbons too. Now, I really must stop blogging and get on with making something!! xox

Thank you loyal blog readers, I really appreciate your comments.

Maybe some of you might like to make this and the ribbon one too.

This one in particular is one of the easiest crafts ever and looks really effective.

I just saw this one come up and HAD to comment - what a gorgeous design!! Would look so pretty for thank you cards with gems stuck in place of buttons. Love it! xXx
