Button Bags in Handbag Packets

Button Badge in packet
I’ve had these large buttons for ages and thought it was about time I used them.
Button Badges
There’s nothing fancy about the idea, all I’ve done is stick a brooch fastening on the back with super glue.
Button Badge
It’s often the packaging that can sell a craft item so I thought I would put the badge/brooch in a little handbag made from a narrow cello bag, embellished with a topper, stickers and ribbon.
I have made the topper with just a small scrap of card, scored and folded in half, and then cut off the corners

A fab idea.....do you mind if I use it for a charity sale?? We have been donated a shed load of buttons and this would help use them up :)
