Try it Tuesday~ buttons!!


I love buttons~they are one of my favorite embellishment~the older, the better.  I have a fondness for the old mother -of-pearl buttons.  They absolutely make my heart beat faster!!  I'm always on the look out for new ways to use them~I made a minature flag to put on a wreath and though, hey~why not a card. So here ya go~


I used my scrap box so I have a little of this and that. The paper is by Scenic Route~ the flag part is out of old music paper.  I used Claudine Hellmuth paint and glued it all together with Helmar's Acrylic sealer!!
I coated the area where I was placing the buttons and then put them on.  I went over the covered area with the sealer and let it completly dry for a couple of hours!


Craft Crossing is having a card swap today at 11:00 so this is mine for the swap!! I would love to hear how you use buttons or if you have a fondness for them LOL!!!  Have a great day and see ya soon!!

  8. I never use buttons! It's so strange. I have a bunch of them. But rarely use them. I don't know why, either. It's just one of those things. I like how you used the buttons though. I think I don't use them, because I lack the creativity of where to put them.
