As I’ve mentioned before, I grew up with a crafty family and spent a lot of time in quilt stores. While they aren’t always used in quilts, for some reason just about every quilt store I’ve ever been in has had a basket of single buttons somewhere in the shop. They’re usually very inexpensive and are typically sold by the scoop, or sometimes by weight. As a little girl that was waiting for her mother to get fabric cut, I thought that button basket was like a treasure chest full of jewels, gems, and pearls.
One day while looking for new inspiration online, I stumbled upon the idea of a button bouquet. Instantly I was in love. Not only was this a fun option for a bride that isn’t into the traditional flowers, but I was suddenly transformed back into a little girl playing with all of the beautiful buttons and wishing I had something to do with them. Suddenly, Pandora’s Box of Buttons was open and the ideas just wouldn’t stop.
