Koumponophobia...if you suffer from the fear of buttons, this week's challenge from Heart 2 Heart is not for you!From Millan.Net

On the other hand, if you're like me and love to just scoop up handfuls of buttons and let them fall through your fingers...

well, get ready for a challenge right up your alley!!

This week the design team at H2H is sharing some pretty awesome artwork using buttons.  Visit the H2H Blog to see the others' creations, but first take a peek at my Love Canvas!

My Creations 6X6 Canvas Display
Accessories: Basic Assortment Buttons, Mini-Medley Accents Antiqued Gold Collection,
Burlap Ribbon, Embroidery Floss Neutral Assortment
Tools: Staple Gun
Here is a close up shot:

Now if you'd like to see the other DT members' creations, head over to the H2H Blog and enjoy!  If you'd like to stick around and see how I made this, carry on!

These are the basic supplies you'll need.  Plus a staple gun and mini glue dots.

Snip off 4 pieces of the Burlap ribbon, as wide as the edge of the canvas.  This will cover the corners when you begin wrapping the canvas.  I used glue dots to hole them down.

Before I started, I did take off the hanger on the back of the canvas.  When you've done that, simply staple the edge of the ribbon to the back, wrap around the front, and staple on the back of the other side of the canvas.

Rotate the canvas and do the same thing with the ribbon going the other way. 

When you're done, your canvas should look like this.

I knew each of the letters would have to be smaller than 3"x3", so I placed my buttons on my VersaMat until I got them the way I liked and the right size.  I used mini glue dots to place them on the canvas, one letter at a time, so they wouldn't move as I stitched them on.  The frame of the canvas is pretty wide, and several of the buttons were above that.  But with the give of the canvas, I could still run my needle and thread through the just took a while longer than it normally would have.

Well, I hope you've enjoyed by Button, Button creation!  I can't wait to see what you come up with!
