12 Oh Creative Days of Christmas

12 Oh Creative Days of Christmas
Through Instagram we’ve met some absolute gems of crafters. They’re the kind of people you know you’d be life long friends with, and sit drinking coffee, listening to Taylor Swift and making pom poms with if there wasn’t an ocean or two in the way. Shannon from @ohcreativeday is one of those people who is a part of our Insta Craft Gang. She’s the most creative, supportive and hilarious friend any girl could have. She’s also the co-host of our Get Creative With craft challenge. Anyhoo, we are so chuffed that she has launched her first eBook. We’ve no idea how she did it whilst juggling three little ones, but she has, and it’s a festive treat. The 12 On Creative Days of Christmas has 12 projects, 13 pages of templates, 6 play dough mats and so many tips and tricks it’s like all your Christmases have come at once! You can buy the book here. To celebrate the launch of Shannon’s book we’ve got two copies to giveaway over on Instagram. All you need to do is follow us (@littlebuttondiaries) and Shannon (@ohcreativeday) and like the picture on Instagram. Competition will close at 7pm (UK time) on Monday 4th December. Winners will be contacted directly. ~ Laura xx ~

Mini Makers: Colour Sort Button Art

button art by little button diaries 7

I was looking at my mountains of craft crap (#craftcrap) the other day – I really do have gigantic stacks of pointless stuff. It pains my inner zen. But I can’t get rid of it, not without finding a use. I have this huge jar of buttons – there are so many buttons they no longer fit in the jar. So it’s actually a huge jar of buttons with a pile of precariously placed buttons on the top. Ridiculous. So I came up with an idea to use my buttons. This craft is so easy and kids LOVE it. Perfect for preschool kids as it has two parts to it – colour sorting and picture building.
