{Easy DIY} Button, Button, Who's Got The Button?

I love buttons.  I love saying the word but-ton, I love it all.  Make those buttons vintage and I am all in!  While my personal collection is just the tiniest start to something greater, I have seen some pretty impressive collections (my non-bio sister for one).  That only inspires me to want to get all the more serious about getting some real gems into my little jars.

Needless to say, I was BEYOND thrilled when my good friend S created the most beautiful buttoned gift that ever was or will be.  Knowing I have a deep love of P's (in honor of my last name), S took great care in choosing the most perfect gift for me.  She rummaged through her mother-in-law's phenom button collection and chose ones she knew I would love.  Reds, oranges, yellows and whites and browns made up the most amazing ombre buttoned letter this girl had ever seen.  What made it even more amazing was SHE made it all by herself with only her trusty glue gun!

I was not only so honored, but incredibly touched.  I mean, buttons, P, vintage, color all in one craft?! It doesn't get much better than that, it really doesn't! The way that the more "average" buttons totally made the more "flashy" buttons pop made it a real treat for the eye.  I not only was nearly brought to tears when she gave it to me, but raced home to proudly display it in my home.

Thank you S for my favorite P ever, you are a great friend and I LOVE it!
