Wild and Irish Button

My friend Karolina did not have any green last St. Patrick's Day so she used a paper clip that my sister gave her so that she did not get violated at The Kells Pub in Portland. (Check out photo above) This year I have solved this problem by making buttons for our next foray into Irish mirth. You can use up your old, useless buttons people foist on you whenever they can by covering them and making them into what you want to say to the world.
