vintage button swap!


it's taken me awhile, but i've finally taken some photos of my fabulous vintage buttons that i received from participating in the vintage button swap hosted by sally. i was paired with michele, and here are the fab buttons i received!


here is a photo of the buttons i sent in return. i attached each one to paper cut out in a pendant shape, then strung them all together.


here's a closer picture.


and here's the packaging. the little blue organza bag holds a vintage button ring. (sorry, the individual photo didn't turn out) and sorry for the potos in general. i'm not a photographer by any means.

Lori! What a creative way to "package" your buttons...just love it! I love all the green + pink buttons you received.

What a neat idea! I love buttons. I found some old, vintage buttons when we were in Belgium that I just can't part with...they're my absolute most favorite souvineer we brought back with us :-)

What a great idea to send the buttons as a banner. They look so beautiful and colorful. Everything you sent was lovely.
