Button, button, who's got the button?

I was tardy a lot in high school. I also frequently waited 'til the last minute to get my assignments done. I guess some things never change.

LAST Friday Heidi hosted a button party! For her Craft Challenge of the month participants created and shared a button project. Here's mine:

I gathered my supplies:

I cut my empty TP tubes to the size I wanted, then cut strips of scrapbook paper to the same width.


I was going to use Mod Podge (you know how I love it!) to attach the paper to the tubes, but decided to use spray adhesive instead. If you use MP it will probably make them a little stronger, and more spill proof.


I then glued coordinating buttons around the edges of my decorated TP tubes.



When I was done...VOILA! Adorable napkin rings perfect for when we FINALLY have pic nick weather outside! Don't let the sunshine fool you...it's COLD!

These are adorable! My girls would love to do somthing like this for our "fancy" dinners (sometimes I break out the china for a treat). I may need a cool temp glue gun...not sure if they really are cooler and safer for little hands. I'll think of soemthing!
