It’s only four days before Camp Grandmama and Grampy Campy for the boys. We have so many fun things planned for Camp, and I’m quite sure I’ll be ready when the boys hit the door and ask “What will we do today?” Quite sure.
Having said that, I decided it would be a good use of my time to design tiny little button books. Mind you, these button books have nothing to do with the Camp coming up in four days. I just couldn’t help myself.
I had seen some darling little button books on Pinterest …. (actually I only saw one button book on Pinterest, but I immediately decided there should be several books). If you want to see the original, head over to Bonkers About Buttons. She has highlighted the 1″ button books created by Designer and Illustrator, Stephanie Davidson.
Our August Camp will feature Button Day, so I have been curating all things button for the last year. So, really, it isn’t too surprising that I decided to make a Button Book.
Timing, however, just might not be my strong suit.
Before you judge, take a look. Seriously, aren’t these cute?
If you want to make a button book or two or yourself or some little person in your life, it’s pretty darned easy. I’ve attached a pdf with templates for a button story (Betty Button is loosely based on Betty Hutton…very loosely…really just the name…), a coloring book I just HAD to include and a button alphabet that woke me at 2:30 a.m. waiting to be created.

Please note. Friend Ann Marie provided some help for those having a hard time opening the pdf file. “When the next page opens for the PDF, you have to click the blue words button book for the PDF to open”. Thank you Ann Marie!!
All you need are 2″ buttons, some ribbon and the templates I’ve made for you. You can get 2″ buttons at almost any store that sells buttons or just unearth that …. um …. “vintage” coat from three decades ago. You know the one.
Yep, those will work just fine. You really weren’t going to wear that again, were you?
I’ll get to the t-shirts, labyrinth, compass directions, olympics, zoo passports, sportsmanship activities, mud, explosions and all things boy. I promise.
But, aren’t these just the cutest things?
Don’t judge. I can’t help myself.
