4-DSC_0840Hey everybody! Today I wanted to pop in and share a really easy diy with you, a button embellished tablet case! My mom’s kindle case has seen better days. So, when I saw this sparkly case at Five Below, I thought it would be perfect to embellish for her for Christmas! One of my favorite vintage things to collect is buttons! I have bunches of them and use them all the time in my projects. I had a rather large lot of mother of pearl and shiny buttons, and I thought they would be sweet to use in a monogram on the case!

Here’s What You Need:

*Tablet Case

*Buttons

*Glue- I used Fabritac

*Marking Pen

Instructions:

First you need to gather your supplies. Grab your case, your buttons and your glue.

I used a pen to draw in my letter. So you want to start out by making your letter with one line of buttons. Play around with your buttons until you have a layout you like.

Once you like your layout, glue each button down one by one with your fabritac glue.

2-DSC_0844I think it turned out pretty cute! I built mine up a little too much so it is a bit bulky. But, I think it would be fantastic with just one layer of buttons too! You can find vintage buttons at flea markets and antique malls. You can always find buttons at your local thrift stores sometimes too. This case took me less than an hour to make and cost me less than ten dollars. So, go by Five Below and grab a tablet case and make it extra special for someone you love this year! I’ll be back tomorrow with another handmade gift. Until then…

Happy Crafting!
