3 Crafty Ways With Buttons!

Buttons! Such a simple little item with such crafty potential. Here at Trimcraft HQ we’ve been busy making 3 creative projects using buttons and we’re finally ready to share!

Read on to find out how to create a fabulous rainbow initial art and a few other goodies with a range of Dovecraft buttons!


Rainbow Button Initial Art:

The first way we like to use buttons is this amazing rainbow button art! This adorable decoration is the perfect personalised gift for friends and family and so easy to make. All you will need is cards, a range of buttons, craft glue and ribbon. This is truly a gift that is sure to impress!


Bee Happy Button Card:

Whether it’s for a Birthday or you just want to let someone know you are thinking of them, why not have a go at this super easy to make bumble bee card? This card is quite special as it uses our brand NEW Dovecraft Super Value Mixed Buttons (eek, so exciting!). Anyone who receives this will definitely ‘bee happy’!


Heart Button Paper Clips:

Our third way to use buttons is as topped to paperclips. This one is the easiest to achieve as all it requires is a little hot glue and the heart shaped buttons from the Dovecraft Super Value Mixed Buttons pack. Just let them dry and you’ll have beautifully unique paperclips great for holding documents together or marking important pages in a diary!


This post is inspired by an old favourite from years ago where we created a button heart, card and bracelet. If you want to check that out, click here!
