~WHY I SHOULDN'T CRAFT!~

~ABOVE ARE THE DARLING BUTTON BOUQUETS from VINTAGE SUE'S BOX TREASURES~

~So, for a long time I have been putting off making BUTTON BOUQUETS. I was over at Vintage Sue's Box Treasures and saw her post of the DARLING Button Bouquets that she did. It INSPIRED ME TO GET IT DONE and well, LOL....this is how mine turned out!!!!~

~I USED VINTAGE RHINESTONE and PINK PEARL BUTTONS. Then USED VINTAGE PIPE CLEANERS, since I didn't have wire~




~And well, there you have it.....
THEY TURNED OUT LOOKING NOTHING LIKE SUE'S and so, this is why I don't craft, do altered art, and am AFRAID TO LEARN TO SEW....I think you have to have it in your blood to be able to take something simply and make it BEAUTIFUL!!! At least I can say I tried.
Next time I will just buy them.....LOL~
Happy Saturday!!!!
Love and Hugs, Amy

Hi Amy,
You crack me up !!! You tried and that is what counts!! I do like them with the pip cleaner stems:)
I told MaryElla that your shop full of goodies. She forgets when you are open...maybe I should email you, her email address!
Your shop is looking awesome.
Warmly,
