Scrappy Brad Earrings

Remember these Flower Button Earrings?


Well the other day I was walking through a craft store doing what I normally do...that is meander through each aisle waiting for something to make my crafting light bulb go off. While walking through the scrapbook aisle...my long lost hobby, I am surprised I even remembered where that aisle is... 

I saw these--

Then that light bulb went off. I bought the little suckers for about $3.50. I promptly brought them home, plugged in the handy dandy glue gun and made myself some more earrings.


pretty lovely, don't you think?

I just about love 'em.





Side note: Hopefully you have noticed I made myself a button...FINALLY. Grab one, that would make my day. ALSO, friends and fam...have you noticed your names missing on my sidebar...no I don't hate you. I decided with the higher traffic, some of you may not want your blog linked where everyone can find it. SO I have put you all in my reader. SO no fear, I LOVE YOU, and I will still keep up on what you are doing in your awesome lives.

How did you make that button? I've been trying all morning.

I so did not figure it out on my own. Here is a site I was guided to by a friend.

You will need some kind of photo editing program to make the button itself. Then just follow the instructions on each link. The first one is how to make the scroll box so you can grab the button. The second one is for the button itself.

I will say, that even with help it took me forever, but that is because I am not too tech savvy. You could also google blog button and you will probably find another slew of how-to's.

Good Luck. May you be more tech savvy than me and not want to throw your computer out the window before you are done!!! Haha.
