365/45 All Buttoned Up

I was inspired by Bonkers About Buttons to make my own button book. I added ribbons to the button covers so that the book could stay closed. Inside of the book are tiny zentangle drawings. Maybe tomorrow night I will fill the other side of the book with tiny poems or Haikus.

If you decide to make one of these, cutting the interior pages is tricky. It's a bit of a challenge to have the pages look circular without accidentally cutting circles instead of accordion style pages. Aileene's tacky glue is great for sealing in the ribbons and gluing the first and last pages to the button covers. It dries quickly and holds everything together nicely. 

By the way the inside flap of a winter coat is a great place to find large buttons! :-)
