I am completely mad about buttons so when I saw these clock ones, I had to buy them. I have used them to death in my paper crafting so I decided to make a pair of stud earrings from them. I bought the earring posts from Etsy and snipped the shanks off the buttons with a needle-nose pliers. Then I glued the buttons on with Glossy Accents and Ta-dah!! I think it took about 30 seconds, not including drying time. I will be on the lookout now for some really special buttons to make some more!
