I’ve been collecting buttons for many years, but never heard that November 16th is National Button Day! I know March is National Button Month, but the November date is a surprise. In honor of this aforementioned special day, Bead & Button has made four free button projects available here.
This got me in the mood to look for more holiday button projects that might be just the thing to put a some button zing in your life. Click on the links below to get a little inspiration!
