    I wonder what glue and what kind of form he used? It did say on the board, but not really informative. Have to google it. I have tons of buttons and this is definitely in my future to make!! thank you for sharing, it is beautiful! I pin all the time.

    I found a tutorial here: http://www.sheknows.com/living/artic...out-of-buttons. The glue used here was transparent school glue. A great rainy day project for older children?

    I saw that on pinterest, just love to visit and get lost. One day I was 2 hours late due to to much time on the site. But no, I am not giving it up, no way. Well except when I am sewing, cooking, working or buying fabric
