Bo Bunny Trinkets and Buttons

Today is all about Trinkets and Buttons on the Bo Bunny Blog! 

I LOVE costume jewelry and charm bracelets.  The Bo Bunny Trinkets remind me of beautiful pieces of jewelry.  They have such pretty filigree looking edges and are perfect to dress up your pages, cards or altered items.  The buttons from Bo Bunny come in such pretty shapes and finishes.  There are also pretty metal pieces in the button packages! 

You can see here that I added some of the older Bo Bunny Rub-ons and also some of the Gabrielle Collection Rub-ons to my cardboard.  Because my project is on canvas, I cut off the backs of the brads and just glued them on.
The painted background is just acrylic paint on a paper towel roll for the circles (brown), on corrugated cardboard for the stripes (blue) and also on bubble wrap (peach) for the dots.  Super simple and quick!

 In this picture you can see that I gave the background paper a few spritzes of Glimmer mist.  The journal strips are just paper that is inked and 'roughed up' a bit.

You can also add some of your other treasures, broken jewelry parts and charms.  I added a few extra little charms from my jewelry making days to this, too.  It's such a fun way to make a gift for someone special in your life!
