Button Flowers are just one of the great ideas I've gotten from this site. I thought I would share my results.

CreepinJen writes: Cartrey, Use a gauge of craft wire that will easily feed though button holes and beads. Use a larger button as a base and stack one or two smaller buttons on top. Feed a length of wire up through one side of the button holes and then add some beads for flower centers. Then feed it back through the other side. Make sure the wire is long enough to allow for twisting and making the stem. You can also add some creative twists and curls with the wire. There are no set rules. Posted: 9:12 pm on July 5th
