Books with Buttons

Just finished a couple of new little journal/sketchbook/notebook thingies. I'm playing around with some of my vintage buttons, and here are the results:


The swirly button on this green journal dates from the late 1930s - early 1940s, according to my button supplier.



I also made another lipstick red journal with a button that I think is from the 1960s (that's a guess) :

They look beautiful- love the braided cord and the cool binding, too.

I do love the addition of the vintage buttons to your work, it works with the plait.

The first button looks like an earthworm!
