You get beautiful pins for putting notices (or infact anything) on cork boards and amazing price display stands! That's what!
Firstly take some oldie worldie drawing pins (thimbtacs) the brass ones with flattish tops, not rubbishy plastic ones. Find your stash of buttons, waste several hours looking at them all and trying to decide which ones will look best, realise there are only so many hours in the day and grab a random handful, using your Bostick (and, of course, in true BBC style: Other adhesives are available) glue one to the other. I don't think it matters how but I found it easiest by sticking the pin into the board and gluing the button on so it could sit flat while it dried. Some look slightly wonky and I'm not sure how well they'll withstand use, may have to adjust glue type, button size, not sure really, watch this space.........
But am very pleased with how they turned out;
They will add to the beautiful handmade look of my stall (well, that's the plan)!
Now my friend Ruth pointed me in the direction of this when I asked her if she could cut Bookatrix stands (she can't but these are much better)! Thanks Ruth!
Glued on handmade paper off cuts, scrappy bits of ribbon, no good for anything else, and a random button or two and I think you'll agree that they look rather splendid!?
I have printed off clear prices for all my goodies and mounted them onto brown card;
I am looking forward to placing these in and around my stuff.
Off now to iron before school pick up, yawn!
