Bugs and Buttons

We've been invited to four (4!!!!!....heaven help me) little girl birthday parties over the course of the next few weeks. Oy! Best get busy on little personalized gifts.:)

I wanted to show you how I used buttons on the Seasonal Stitching: Butterfly Dies instead of die cutting out the little holes and backing them with felt patches. This works just as well too. And they look so adorable sewn onto the Clever Barrette Die.

Instead of a separate card (for goodness sakes, I think homemade barrettes are enough in this case), I just tied the Boutique Accessory Card with the barrettes onto my present to serve the same purpose. On the back side, I stamped a sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Birthday and carried the butterfly theme over with a few images from Beautiful Butterflies.

One down, three to go!
