Whip it Up Wednesday: Button Upcycle!

Just for fun this week, I decided to try and do something cool with these boring old button pins (remember these?) instead of throwing them away.

They have flat front sides which are perfect for collage/decoupage!

With a few helpful items such as stamps, magazine images (I've been collecting these for a while- can you say HOARDER?), Mod Podge (my hero!) I created some masterpieces..

I'm reading about Marie Antoinette right now so that was my inspiration for this "Let them Eat Cake" button. Did you know that it is actually not likely that she ever said that?

Apparently, the poor people longing for bread had been ascribing the phrase to hated monarchs and aristocrats long before she had the throne of France!

This is a distinctly Alice in Wonderland inspired Pin. I love how it looks like everything is spinning into the center (which is a clock face)!

An Elegant silhouette on black lace paper. Simple grace.

So here they all are!

This button pin is adorable!  How perfect: If wearer is found depressed, ADMINISTER CHOCOLATE IMMEDIATELY :)

Linking up to Jennifer Rizzo's Linky Party!
