Button Magnets

I wanted to make something little to give Lisa for Christmas and decided to make her some button magnets. Just like me she loves buttons! I tried to pick a variety of styles and sizes from my button jar. I bought the magnets at a fabric store (but I figure most craft stores sell them as well), and I used e6000 epoxy to glue the magnets to the backsides of the buttons. An easy, fun gift, especially for anyone who likes buttons! I wrapped them up in some burlap with an aqua ribbon to match her holiday color scheme and wrote her a note on the Christmas cards I bought last year.

It seems the term crafts is often used to describe the family of artistic practices within the family decorative arts that traditionally are defined by their relationship to functional or utilitarian products
