Craftster Challenge - Buttons, Buttons, Buttons

There was a challenge over at Craftster - check it out there are a few more days left to enter. Here is what I did:

I'm in spring crafting mode. I guess it's hoping that it will bring us actual spring weather. So I incorporated my button project into a spring one. I had some buttons for scrapbooking projects and had just the right color! I really love robins eggs this time of year. So I took a styrofoam egg and used glue dots to put the buttons on it. It was super simple this way! I did a little bit of layering to add a bit more interest. i probably would have done a bit more but ran out of buttons. Went to micheals today to see if I could find more but couldn't. So for now just one lonely button egg :(

I'm sure you could use a plastic egg but it wouldn't be as pliable. You could also paint the egg before so the little bits showing through were the same or a different color. I'm sure there are a million other ways to do this as well but I'm happy with my results.

First 2 pictures are just the egg. Second 2 show where I put it - with my other blue eggs.

Those were lucky finds.
Followed your link from the trash to treasure party and really enjoyed reading your creative posts. Thanks for sharing the inspiration.


Cute idea! I would never have thought to do that-I like how it looks.


What an awesome idea. I'm really into buttons right now. :)
