"Bitty" to...

You might remember these little bitty flowers I posted about last week before the Junk Market Trunk Show.
I told you I'd tell you how I made them...
I got my inspiration from all those pretty little button and paper flower bouquets out in Blogland and on Pinterest.

Here's how I made my version...

I grabbed a couple of these flower shaped paper punches...

And "went to town" punching out these little cuties.

Then I layered them of each shape and a little button.

I used a little mini glue dot in between each layer to hold them together...not necessary but it made it a little easier for me.

Then I snipped a little wire and poked it through the holes.

And twisted it.

And there you go...very easy, but time consuming if you want to make a bunch :)

I had a few of these decanter lids on hand for vases.  I love the little touch of cork. 
Cork, buttons and book pages...a few of my favorite things :)

Thanks so much for stopping by...
