Sometimes all it takes to unleash the creative juices is to have a little visual inspiration!! Dress It Up specializes in theme-packs of buttons and embellishments that can make any project special. Here's a few fun ideas:

2.) Hair accessories like combs and bow clips are natural items to personalize with embellishments. Pick a theme and hot glue the items into place for great hair accessories. Especially nice for kids, and for creating matching accessories for favorite garments. Good for gifts, party favours, kid's projects (when working with small children have an adult glue the items in place to prevent burns from the hot glue).

4.) Let's not forget garments and clothing items! Sweatshirts and t-shirts are fun and easy to personalize. Denim shirts are great too. Buy a purchased shirt or sew your own, then add on buttons, appliqués and ribbon roses. for a one-of-a-kind creation.

5.) Jewelry items like pins and earrings can be created inexpensively with purchased findings (check your craft or bead store) and some hot glue and a few buttons. Great gift ideas for Mom or Grandma.

Buttons and embellishments can make anything around your house, your closet, or jewellry box special and unique. Let your impagination run wild and see what you can come up with!!
