This months challenge theme for Scrap For Help is 'Buttons'. I have collected old buttons for many years- with a fascination for all the older intricate details. We don't see buttons like this anymore!
Scrap for Help is a community blog - promoting friendship and the use of recycled products around the globe. Each month there is a challenge, with the theme's each being related to using something that is able to be recycled. There are a number of wonderful sponsors who support in generous prizes, so please call on over and check the challenge out, grab some inspiration from the International design team members, and perhaps take the time to participate.

I adore vintage, so I created this tag with a vintage element, with the picture being the main focal point, and opulent button flowers, and roses to decorate. The button flowers were created by making pinwheels from vintage lace. All I did was gather the lace with a needle and thread and carefully sewed the ends together - forming the pinwheel. A vintage button highlights the lace pinwheel. So simple!
