Default TLC325 ~ Paper Buttons ~ (05/16/11)

Hi Stampers!

Did you all see the Dirty Dozen Gallery today?! A lot of rockiní samples, thatís for sure. Every month the 15th seems to come quicker and quicker. Itís always a thrill to see what the girls have done.

~ Paper Buttons ~

Just a few days ago, Lynn Pratt (lpratt) posted a fabulous tutorial here in the resources section on making paper buttons. Buttons are really popular right now! Making them yourself you can have them in any color and shape! Iíve made round ones, square ones, heart shaped and star shaped. I like the idea of adding a clear glaze such as Crystal Effects to them! Take a look at her TUTORIAL and let your imagination fly!

Here is my sample:

~ Set Sail ~

When uploading, please remember to use the keyword TLC325 (no spaces). Also, since this is a tutorial here on SCS, please use the PAPER BUTTONS gallery. You will find it in the drop down menu on uploading.

You can find the entire TLC325 gallery HERE.

Happy creating!

I remember when we did this before that I was so impatient waiting for my buttons to dry. Versamark and UTEE work great for those who are impatient like me.

I have a question, does it have to be a card that we make and use the button? I have really gotten into making ATC's that's why I'm asking. If it needs to be a card, that's totally ok, I just wanted to ask before I started. Thanks!

Make whatever you like . We have no rules!! I think a button on an ATC would be totally adorable!
