Hello and welcome back! September...school days school days good old golden rule days!!! Guess you know where my mind has taken me for this month's DeNami Button Boutique feature! I don't have a photo of my products to show you, sorry about that. I gathered all of my supplies one night to adhere my buttons while watching a little TV with my hubby. He was working on a work project on the Ipad while I played with buttons and we had a movie going!! Mutli-taskers we are ~ hee! The movie was Ironman in case you were wondering. Nothing I had to pay close attention too haha, we've seen it before! So anyway...when I went to photograph my projects, it dawned on this organized gal, that she neglected that first photo ~ sheesh!!!
I told you school days! I was wandering around Hobby Lobby a few weeks back and came upon a flat wooden apple. It was already painted and on sale for a mere 50 cents ~ score! This was a simple project to complete. The colors and lines were already there. I simply added glue dots to the buttons and put them in place. Even the white highlight was on the wooden piece. Aren't these Ruby Red Boutique Buttons pretty? If you zoom in on this project you can see the fabulous variety that comes in the package. I think this would be a sweet gift for a teacher. Put a magnet on the back or even her room number on it for the classroom door! The apple is just about 4" tall, such a cute size!
Now that the apple was complete I set out to make a coordinating card. I reached for my sweet little DeNami apple from the apples and pears petit four set. This is the open one colored with markers. I love this sentiment, so perfect for so many people in our lives. I used a simple row of matching red buttons as a border. I see one little button moved on me just a bit, sneaky little fella! I pulled some October Afternoon paper and die cut the sticky back cork to add to my projects.
I made the small tag to pull some of the colors on the card to my apple. I snipped out one of the pencils and stapled on a scrap of the OA paper. I'm a stickler about making my gifts coordinate!
