Vintage Santa

I love these vintage tags I found at a craft store last weekend when I went shopping. This one is backed on some garden green. I added some gold and red glitter glue here and there. The gold button came from my button jar and I sewed it onto some vanilla ribbon. I distressed the top note die a bit...then stamped "to and from."



Did your mom have a button jar? Mine did. She had an old oatmeal container full of buttons...I loved to dump them all out and look at all the different shapes. I think its funny that here I am so MANY years later still playing with buttons! Who knew!

Love this gift card. I, too, think the vintage looks so cool. I do have my Mom's buttons in a lamp base... Love them

The button is fabulous. I love the classic red and green here with this Santa. I'm feeling the Christmas spirit!
