Hello Sister

Hey there!  Thank you for popping over to see me!  Today, I am sharing a fun tip on making your own button embellishment.  I don't own any button dies, so I decided to make my own using Skipping Stones Design stamps and some thin chipboard.  Let's get started.

First, I took thin chipboard and die cut circles from it.

I then rubbed yellow ink over the circles to cover them with color.

Taking a pencil I marked where I wanted the holes to be and using my Crop O Dile, punched my holes.

I took a yellow ink, slightly darker than the first yellow I coated the pieces with and stamped it with the music notes strip from Timeless Textures.

Lastly, I coated them with Glossy Accents and allowed them to dry.

Here is a look at the final project, a card I gave to my lovely sister!  I used October Afternoon's Sidewalk collection for this card.

Thanks again for dropping in!  Have a great day.
