Tuesday Tutorial: Button Rings

Doodlebug Button Rings by Sherry Cartwright



When I get new scrapbook product, I always lay them out to admire then and to get the creative wheels turning.   I did the same process when my box of Doodlebug goodies arrived.  Each collection is cute, jam packed with cute images and lots of colorful goodies ---- all awesome!  

Anyhow, for this project, I used the Sugar & Spice collection.   It is geared more for the baby girl in your life, but has lots of versatility to it, too.   I love all of the sweet images, full of bright pastel hues and cute patterns.  

But.

For this project, I wanted to focus on the grown-up gal.  


Let’s gather some supplies --- ring base, adhesive, buttons and pearls. The ring base, which can be picked up at a big box craft store or jewelry supply or your could recycle an unloved ring already in your jewelry box, needs to have a flat top.  

Now that you have your supplies gathered, be sure to set aside about 15 minutes to make this project.   Yep, only FIFTEEN minutes and you’ll have a new, crafty cool ring to  wear as you celebrate spring.   


First, pick your favorite button from the Sugar & Spice collection card.  I chose a pink flower shaped button for this project.   

Then dot a little super-duty adhesive to the center of your button and add pearl center.   It is easier to assemble the button/pearl now than when button is already on ring base. 

Adhere button to ring base.  Let dry.   

Viola.   

By the way, isn't that some sweeeeeeet doodle twine?!

In the photo below, I also stacked a yellow and orange button and topped it with a pearl center.  This would be cute on a ring as well as a card or layout.  

Be sure to stop by my blog as I have created two more 15-minute projects using Doodlebug’s sweet Sugar & Spice collection.
