Comment: Great package. I love the buttons and that you tailored them to my profile. That is awesome. I even love the paper they were wrapped up in. But I was most excited about the way you secured them. I had never thought about sewing them to a postcard like that -- very smart. I may just have to display the cards as they are, they are that cute. Thank you so much!
Response: i'm so glad you liked them..yey!! and thank you for you lovely message :)
