all you need is love...



With Valentines day fast approaching, we have been working on this little project.  These are linen covered buttons that we have printed with different letter styles. We are still deciding how best to frame them, not sure whether to go for a simple white/ivory background, or a deeper shade as above. We think this framed picture would make a perfect valentine's day present which would look equally at home displayed all year round. After all, you can never have enough love in your life!

We are also busy creating Valentine's Day cards. Counting down the days until susuieq arrives... boy, have we got some work for you!!

Oh you are so clever. How ever did you make all those letters sit in the very centre of the buttons?

Oooo! I love them (parden the pun) can you get them unframed?

I am going through a words and numbers obsession at the moment. I've just added about 30 new fonts to my computer. So I'm loving this idea! Pity I have no Valentine to give it to!

Just adore the soft textures and soothing tones of the linen---perfect for letting the typefaces take center stage. Wonderful!

An order coming your way for this gorgeous creation so get it up on your etsy store pronto girls!

Oh gosh the Cherry Pips certainly got up to mischief. Didn't you notice that is was too quiet!

Are they real buttons I could sew on a cardigan?

Love it - such a unique idea!

Can I buy them from anywhere?
