Thrifty Thursdays - Button Magnets

 
Today's thrifty thursday project is fun, fast and easy!  And bonus it's thrifty because it takes supplies you probably already have in your craft room!  For this project I used buttons (and you know I have TONS!), a little bit of bling (self adhesive rhinestones), magnets, and glossy accents to glue they layers together (though please please use hot glue - it will be sooooo much faster and easier - I was too lazy to plug the hot glue gun in and I wanted a project I could do while sitting on the couch and watching Big Brother!
 Simple to do - just glue layers of buttons together, top with a rhinestone and glue a magnet to the back!  I am loving the pink and yellow combo - so perfect for summer - like pink lemonade. OH!  You know what's better than pink lemonade??  Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade:
Seriously - it's the best drink on the planet!  If you have never had one you need to stop what you are doing and run to the nearest Starbucks - seriously - it's that good!  If it wasn't midnight I would be there right now!!

I've done fabric-covered button magnets, but I had never thought of using "regular" buttons. Great idea! Thanks for the post.

Great idea for my button stash. You suggest hot glue but confessed to not using it while watching your TV show - did the not-hot-glue work all right? I have many reasons for not being able to use hot glue and am usually mostly successful.
