EBTKS #20- Around the House Challenge

Good morning! It's time for an Around the House Challenge over at EBTKS blog! This week Courtney is our host and she chose Buttons! I really love old buttons and unique buttons! So I knew just what button I wanted to use on a project! :) We have a great sponsor this week....Simon Says Stamp! Woo Hoo! So go by and check out their store! :)
My MIL bought me a jacket from a garage sale last year and it was brand new and still had the tags on it. And along with the tag was the extra button! You can see the jacket here. I have known that I wanted to use that button on something, so this challenge was it!
Here is my card. And you can take it off and use it as a hair piece.
You can use it in your hair or clip it on a shirt or necklace.
I also made the headband. I used some trim that I found a JoAnn's and just hot glued it on. And I left one little spot open and didn't glue it, so I could clip on the flower.
Here is the back of the flower, showing it clipped on instead of glued on.
{Supplies: Cardstock- (PTI) vintage cream, (Paper reflections) brown ; Stamps- (PTI) (leaves) Turning a new leaf & (sentiment) Damask Designs ; Ink- (VersaMark) watermark, (Tsukineko- Memento) Rich cocoa ; Other- corner rounder, hole punch, trim, fabric, & clip (JoAnn's), headband (WalMart), button from stash}

You could make this whole set as a gift, but I think I am going to be stingy and keep it myself! :) I will make another one to give away!

I hope ya'll liked my project and go by the EBTKS blog and check out the other designers cards too. And you can get all the details on the challenge too!

We will be going to my Mee Mee's today to stay with her a couple of days. She is very lonely since my Paw Paw passed away. If you will Please keep her in your prayers. Thank You!

Have a Blessed day and weekend! :)

So cute and clever, as usual!! I love that you made it to where you can use it on the card, clip it in your hair on the homemade hairband! CUTE, CUTE, Cute! Is that paper that you ink distressed? Love that too!

Maureen said...

gorgeous!!! I love the neutral colours...but we need a picture of you wearing it!!! I'm sure it looks fabulous in you lovely long hair :)

Janelle said...

How clever is that, Winter! And, I agree with Maureen, we need a picture of you wearing it! Bet it does look fabulous with your hair and along with that jacket (although, I bet it's w-a-y too hot in Texas to wear a jacket now!). Also, I hadn't been on your actual blog for awhile -- love the family picture on your banner. So cute!
