teeny tinys (and an impromptu freebie too!)

 I love my teeny tiny buttons!
 this morning I've been counting, counting, counting and this empty stock drawer....
turned  into this gloriously full stock drawer ::
 all 10 of the colour mix bags have been stocked up - along with the rainbow mix bags...
 ...scrummy!
I also counted out a load of individual colour bags....
 ...which is when I thought - 'lets have a rainbow freebie!'
 So here we have one pack of all 45 colours...they are dyed to match the 45 felt colours I sell...there are 25 buttons in each pack which is a grand total of 1125 teeny tiny buttons- and someone reading this will win them all!
 All you need to do is leave a comment on this blog post and on Wednesday 2nd April I'll select a winner....here are the rules ::
FREEBIE RULES
only one comment per person
I absolutely must be able to contact you through your comment
it doesn't matter what your comment says but it'd be nice for me and all the readers to read about what you may make with them all :-)
I will post worldwide (for free) so everyone from everywhere can enter (even if you've won a freebie before)
GOOD LUCK!

Lindsey Hollister said...

1,125 buttons! For free!?! WOW! I would pop them in little jars in my new craft room (yes, my very own room just for crafting! - I'm v excited, can you tell?!) and line them all up on the wall to look pretty, colourful and brighten up those rainy days (summer is on it's way which = rain!). After several months of gazing and drooling at them I might just be able to bring myself to finally open the jars and start using the buttons. That's after a little chat with myself to explain that I can actually buy more of the buttons so the jars would never need to be empty! Once I've finally convinced myself I can use them then I'd use them on the felt name banners I make at The Lemon Button to spread the button love with my lovely customers x

Kerry Roberts said...

Oh wow, amazing! I make wooden button bunting (wooden letters, painted and covered in lots of little buttons, all different shapes). It's hard to get little buttons to fill in the gaps so these would be perfect :) xxx

Suse Tonkin said...

What an amazing freebie! I would probably use the buttons to add detail on the dresses I want to make for my little girl. :-)

I love buttons! Especially the teeny ones!
