Paper clip and button flower
I traced my larger button, onto a sheet of chipboard and cut it out. Then, I cut out a piece of black cardstock, to cover the chipboard and inked the edges. I could have just used a marker or paint to color the chipboard, and will probably do that next time--but this was trial and error so I just went with what I was doing.
I then hotglued the clips around the circle, and reinforced the center with more hot glue. I added the larger black button (hot glued in place), then tied a little piece of ribbon that matched the clips onto the white button and hot glued it into place.
I think it is a really sweet button, and will look nice in the center of a bow.
Thanks for taking a looksie.
