Button Fairies

Okay, these are seriously cool. I've just discovered button fairies. We are having a swap on one of my groups that I am hosting. They are totally fun and quick to make (that is unless you are VERY anal about picking out things like me.....then the button selection can be a monumental task). DH loses it with me in the frozen food section because if I am picking out a frozen meal.....well, let's just say it takes awhile. LOL

You can find some great tutorials here, here and here. These are my first two attempts. I am sure more will be forthcoming.

I had this graphic that was screaming "make me a button fairy please." I think the feathers were the perfect addition. Miss Pookie (#1 kitty) REALLY thought the feathers made the fairy into a yummy morsel for a between meal snack. The fairy is now safely stowed Away from inquiring paws.

This is my 2nd fairy.....of course I HAD to use Mona.....and she would feel so under-dressed without her crown. Anywho.....that's what I have been making. What are you waiting for?? Go grab some buttons, some wire and an image or two and get cracking. :)

These are so cute; I have tons of buttons, maybe it's time for me to put them to use. Thanks for the link!
