Antique Perfume Buttons- The story goes that during the Civil War the ladies would take a perfumed button off their dress and give it to their loved one, sending him into war with a romantic memento. Many stories are told of soldiers who died with a button in his pocket or stories that recount how this memento kept them alive during those stressful times.
(Button) Elephant in the Room-Tutorial; A but of a harder DIY- but so cute for a special friend who has a new baby- tip: use a stencil first then glue the buttons on with a hot glue gun (they will stay on better). If you like the extra challenge you can sew them on but layering the buttons may prove to be a bit of a challenge.
