So here is my tutorial on how to make the
All Buttoned Up Valentines Day Ornaments
What you need
1/16” Ribbon (cost about $1 at Joannes for a whole spool)
First take the paper clip and pull out end of it so it has a little arm (like in the picture above)
Next cut about 22 inches of ribbon
Set out your color combo of buttons I used different reds pinks and whites all different sizes and patterns you can even use a shank button for the first button. Ive used a standard 2 whole button.
Take your two ends and hold them in between your thumb and first finger
Slide a button in between the ribbon ends and the first finger lining the ribbon up with the holes. (*note depending on what side you place the button facing will determine what side faces up or down you can play around with this to figure out how you want yours to look)
Next take your paperclip and push each ribbon in and through the respective hole on the button and slide it down.
Repeat again with the next button
Continue until you have the height you would like for your ornament
Next you are going to tie a knot
Hold the ornament in your hand and wrap the 2 ends of the ribbon around your finger and then pull the ends through the circle you have made.
You can use the lose knot to adjust how long you want the ornament to hang.
Next tie a bow
Trim the ends
And your done and ready to decorate!
These are also available in sets of 10 on my etsy site!
