These are Fun Gifts Any Time of the Year!
Buttons of various sizes can be quickly turned into pretty flowers with a bit of glue. Add a pin back to create a brooch to wear or to pin to a tote or other item. They make fun gifts, too, so make several while you’re at it.
There are so many options with this project. Fabric covered buttons and glue-on rhinestones are nice additions to colorful plastic buttons. Play with your button collection to create pretty designs.
The secret to success with these is to use the right kind of glue. Glass and bead glue works while E6000 and hot glue do not. You may need to experiment a bit with glue you have on hand to determine what works best.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
