Friday's Button Projects

Amanda used button paper for the background of her page. She also used small, large, and heart shaped buttons as embellishments.

Fern used a couple of buttons on this weeks layout. The first one she used for the center of the top flower, and the other teeny tiny one is in the shape of a heart and she used it for the dot above the "i" in Princess.

Sarah used the biggest buttons she could find in her stash! They are Heidi Grace, and they're clear with etching on the back. The buttons are hand sewn to the layout using floss.
Erika used buttons to anchor her photo. The choice to add buttons was made easy when she had chosen a dotted theme for this layout.

Jessica used buttons of several different sizes as the center of her flowers. She topped the buttons with brads that were popped right through the button holes. For the button holes that were too small to fit the brads through, she used a circular precision file to sand the holes down to size. After the brads were popped through the buttons and through her page, she "burped" them - using her thumb, she pushed down on the center of the brads while the page was lying on a self-healing craft mat in order to get them to lay flat.

Crystal used lots of different buttons on this layout. The ribbon slide on the second ribbon is a button. She used three in each corner for photo corners. She also lined up quite a few to highlight her photo.
