I saw a card in Walgreen's that said “Mothers are like buttons, they hold everything together.” I immediately thought “how tender!” Since then I have seen this sentiment several other places. (Apparently, I’m not the only one familiar with this darling little ditty!) I do not claim to be the genius that coined this phrase, I don't know who it was...who ever you are...you are so cleaver! I love the idea of this being buttoned onto a gift for Mother's Day. Warms your heart doesn't it!?!
I have a ton of old buttons and figured I would make a quick and easy Mother's Day gift from them. This Mother's Day craft is easy enough for the kids to participate in.
I chose to make a button bracelet and do it with a magnetic bracelet that comes equipped with a removable clasp.
It's so easy to work with, even a "non-crafting Dad could manage to help the kids make this for Mom or Grandma! No jewelry making skills necessary! My daughter had a great time helping me load the wire up with buttons!
