Country Sampler Special Edition
Cute as a Button
Embellish wrapped presents with different button treatments like these from Fabiana of Ciao Newport Beach. For the snowflake pattern, tie red-and-white string horizontally and vertically around a box. Use hot glue to attach two strings in an X in the middle. Glue a large button at the center and then add small and medium buttons down the snowflake arms. For the button-garland package, thread two-hole buttons onto a string and then tie it horizontally around the box. To make the ribbon design, glue a Merry Christmas ribbon horizontally around the box and then glue a row of buttons above and below it.
