2) Picture outlines: Transform any drilling photo placement into something awesome by sticking smaller than normal fastens all around the edges. (This works best with level surface photograph outlines.) These make extraordinary gifts, from pearl buttons looking brilliant in an architect room, to vivid rainbow outlines filling in as a “recover soon” gift.

Use them as focus of your work of art, for instance, an enormous yellow button is the sun, a huge dark button is the focal point of a sunflower, or a huge earthy colored button is an owl’s head. They make fascinating blended media parts in your work.

String the line however the enormous button openings (Criss-cross the rope on the off chance that utilizing four opening button), interlace it. Your interlace ought to be” at least 3 long. Connect with ties onto the ring. It will make a pretty and oversimplified key chain or gift thought.

Track down medium weight cardboard to use for gift bundle backing. Mount buttons onto the cardboard support as this is your gift show. (This should be possible by cutting a little cut in the cardboard, and squeezing the magnet through to hold the magnet set up, so all you see on the facade of the cardboard is the lovely fastens, as though they are mounted on a card!) Cover with material or wrap with paper and these make extraordinary gift sets.
