Button-Heart Cuff Links

Let him wear your heart on his sleeve with a set of symbolic cuff links,fashioned from mother of pearl buttons and silk beading cord.

How to

To make 1 set of cuff links, you'll need four 1/2 inch heart shaped buttons,preferably made from mother of pearl.They used red silk beading cord, but any sturdy thread is fine.

Holding 2 buttons 1/4 inch apart,run the threaded needle back and forth through the buttons holes several times.

Enclose the center strands of thread by sewing about a dozen blanket stitches close together. Run needle back through completed blanket stitches; trim thread close to starting point .

Repeat with remaining 2 buttons to complete the set of cuff links.
