I've been including a little vintage button flower when sending off packages of buttons purchased from my destash shop. They're just simple stacks with some wool leaves, wound up on wire with a curved stem that can slip in a button hole and act as a brooch or it can hang over the edge of a flower pot, pencil cup, etc.
One of my sweet customers mentioned that she likes purple turtles so I just had to make a little surprise for her package.
I've carved up a mother of pearl button that had chipped along one side (I never throw those away because I like carving them) into a vague turtle shape with my dremel tool and a diamond bit. I carved with the button under running water. When I was done, I gave him a purple button shell and plunked him down on a wool lily pad. Silly but fun.
Have a great weekend everybody. (silly and fun too, if you can swing it)
