Gee let’s see Father’s Day – hmmm what can we create for the man who says he has everything? How about getting his desk at work organized! Here is a sweet and quick project that you can create with things that you may have in your craft drawer or around the house…and with our New Favorite Findings Wood Buttons it’s sure to be a hit…
Materials: New Favorite Findings #1569 Indian Summer
Recycled pencil holder or an old soup can (washed of course!). Jute rope; Braiding cord, glue, scissors
Aren’t these great looking “earthy” buttons – these are wood buttons with screened art ontop! Later in my blog I’ll show you the other styles we have available!
So, I jumped the gun a bit and actually started working on my holder before I realized I needed to take a photo – but as you can see – I’m using one that was just a white holder that had a company name that was given to me for recycling (we love to re-use). I began glueing from the top and kept working my way down adding glue as I needed it.
Set aside to dry a bit and select 6 buttons – with the orange cord (faux stitching) start from the top – go in and then come back out the other hole knot – do this to the remaining 5 buttons.
Wiht the natural cord and glue, begin creating a “loopy” design on your pencil case until it looks like…and then add your buttons with glue.
There is no pattern – you create your own…
Add some pencils, pens and if he LOVES to CRAFT with you add some colorful pencils!
Here are some additional New Favorite Findings in wood…

Hopefully these Buttons will Inspire you to CREATE your special gift for Dad or something special for someone or maybe just for You!
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
