This week, we were sent this amazing Harvest buttons!  They are available in the store :)  The beautiful Fall hues are gorgeous IRL and perfect for the many harvest projects you might be planning! 


For my project, I created a small magnetic pocket style card for my daughter's locker :)  Although her and her many bff's are usually texting all day long, I wanted to make a small area for her to keep notes and attach little notes to a central card station :)  I found these adorable flower clothespins @ Joanns (all 3 for $1.00!) and added the buttons as a flower center.   They are detachable and she can add them to the side of the locker or keep them on the card ~ great for keeping on the refrigerator, too!





Thanks for stopping by today! 
Blessings!
