Blog Hop with Buttons Galore

    



and


buttons galore2

I'm super excited to be a part of the Buttons Galore/ Glue Dots® blog hop today.  I thought I'd make a little gift tube for graduation. I put candy in my tube, but you could put candy, money, or even a gift certificate inside.


 I created a tag, and also hung buttons from Buttons Galore & More's School Days Graduation button pack from twine for some added fun.


I stripped a kraft colored tag with washi tape, and used Craft and Mini Glue Dots® to attach the "Congratulations" and grad cap button to the tag.


To keep that twine holding the extra buttons in place, I strung them through a button from Buttons Galore's Craft & Scrapbook Embellishments (Seaside) and attached the button to the top of the tube with a Craft Glue Dot® 


Oh, and just a little side note, many of the Buttons Galore buttons (like the one I used on the top of my tube), come in these useful little containers. I added a paper flower to the top of mine, and now it's useful and pretty darn cute!

Okay, so first I loved the tag, then the idea of the candy in the tube, but my favorite idea was how you decorated the button container. Great post!
