Beaded Button Box

By:

3 Comments

Check out the sewing supplies at your local dollar or discount store. We found this cute button box that can be embellished by you or your child, and given to a sewer as a gift (inexpensive and FAST!).

 

Materials:

  • Button box from a discount store
  • 4" x 6" Treasure Tape sheet
  • Diamond Beadlets
  • Buttons to embellish the top
  • Kreinik 1/16" Ribbon in desired colors (we used 100 White)
  • Kreinik #12 Braid in desired colors (we used 031 Crimson and 007 Pink)
  • Kreinik Facets in desired colors (we used Black)
  • Shallow pan or tray

 

Instructions:

  1. Trace the outline of your box top onto the white side of the red liner Treasure Tape. Cut out.
     
  2. Remove the white liner and place the tap on the top of your button box. Remove the red liner to expose the sticky part.
     
  3. Decorate with any buttons first, placing them randomly or in a particular pattern onto the tape.
     
  4. Next, lay the thread in desired places. Lay the Facets around the edge as a border, then swirl and curl and lay the other colors as desired, pressing into the tape to adhere the threads.
     
  5. Then lay the box in a shallow pan or tray and cover all remaining sticky areas with the Diamond Beadlets.


Kreinik threads available through needlework stores or www.kreinik.com.

I can understand it all, but I had not heard of Treasure Tape until today. lol But it sounds like it's really convenient and easy to use. The box sounds nice, would like to see the one you made.

I haven't a clue with these directions; need more detail as long as there is not a picture posted. A picture would speak a thousand words. Where are the liners? and, what is a 'tap'? I get a lot of enjoyment from this site and sorry to be in such a fog with this one.
