Button decoration

The holiday is over.
I had a lot of time to play with my lovely buttons. And now I can share with you what I received.
1. I have a lot of those gorgeous black buttons. But I hate a black color.
I put a bit of gold acrylic paint on the button , after two hours I got this beautiful one of a kind button.

2. I found this week in the local story the grab bag with folded roses and strange sparkly embellishments (flowers, butterflies bugs). I was need a roses, so I bought this bag. This things was doing from unknown sparkly stuff on the fabric interface. At home I glued them on the buttons with clear strong glue. (like E600). I try to use a fabric glue for the wrapped buttons but it don't work so well for me.

3. And The lovely last try. I glued the gold foil under clear plastic buttons. I use the foil glue according to the instructions on the bottle. But use the candy foil instead of expensive antic one. If you don't want to put the foil on the block you can sew other button under one with a foil. the hols I did with a toothpick.

It was fun, but I still have to much buttons for me. I will be happy to sell few and get a money for new ones. You can see them on my Flickr. If you want to buy something just leave me a comment , please . And I will answer to you as soon as I can.
