Fussy & Fancy Challenge "Buttons"

Its that time again! There is a new Fussy and Fancy Challenge just started over on our Blog and the theme is" Buttons".  We all have lots of them so there is no excuse this month for you not to take part.  I was being really good this time and decided to make a nice crisp clean project, but then I couldn't take it anymore and had to squeeze in a grungy one too!!

I have made a little picture tutorial for my main project which is a Button Purse.  As I was looking for my buttons I could just see a lot of storage boxes and had no idea which one my buttons were in, so I decided I would make something to put them in that was a bit more obvious!? Products used mainly just my stash of buttons, some spotty card from Suziecraft and a fabric sheet I had been saving for a special project from Docraft.  Main pattern was from a Serif Product Sheet.

I made a template from Serif  Craft Artist
Cover the Template with the sticky backed fabric.






 
On the inside cover the ragged edges
with card.
Fold in the curved edges to form the side panels


Glue the sides together.


 


Measure some tape or ribbon to fit around
the outside of the Purse and cut.

Cover tape with red double sided tape
and wrap around the outside of the Purse
and bring edges into inside for neatness.
 
Add some Velcro fasteners to the
inside lid and opposite spot on
purse. Best to do this with Velcro together
stick to one side and then close purse.
Then you know the fasteners will meet
up properly.
 
Decorate the outside as required.
 
and fill your purse with your favourite buttons.
THEN I MADE THIS
 
 
FROM THIS
