I decided to make some jewelry from them for his favorite girl in the whole world! He wore those buttons through lots of hard work and I knew she would appreciate them.
I made an elastic chain bracelet and hung lots of buttons on it. I also added their initials and a few heart and "love" charms. The "love" charms are appropriate because that is what he calls her..."love"!
I also made some earrings from the buttons and charms. They are not the same... drives some people crazy but I think it makes life interesting when things don't match!
One has a heart charm...
She loved them and looks lovely wearing them. We called the bracelet her "hoo-ray" bracelet. That is a Marine thing. It makes noise when she moves!
I am a happy momma knowing that someone else loves my boy as much as I do!
Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!
