Default WT93 - Button Up

This week is a rerun week all the way back to Wt11 Buttons! I thought we would redo this challenge as I totally missed it the first time around. My good friend Beth posted it for me 19 months ago while I was in the hospital with my little Joshua.

So this week, pull out those buttons and find ways to use them. I love buttons for embellishing and they are so fun and easy to use. If you don't have any craft buttons, raid your cupboard. Everyone has extra buttons from garments they have purchased.

Please remember to put WT93 in your keywords section and post a link back here. You have all week or even longer to complete this challenge. I hope you will have some time to relax and play along. I will try and squeeze it in this morning too. It has been hard to get much stamping done with five kids in the house this week.

I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and have a great New Year's!

Happy stamping,

I got some buttons a while ago and have never used them. Guess I'll have to do that today. Besides, being a sewer, I've got bunches of regular buttons. Some real OLD ones. See what I can come up with.

Default A hint for those with no buttons...

If you have no buttons, you can use the various circle punches, then take the paper piercer and pierce 2 or 4 holes in your paper button! leave as is or thread linen thread through the holes.

I must have taken 15 photos of this card and cannot get a decent picture - sorry. What fun to do something I keep forgetting about - thanks, Julia!

Button, button, button
(I used 3)

Thanks for looking.

I lOVE this, Michelle! I did this a while back but then I covered it w/ clear embossing powder, UTEE to make it shiny and coated!! Or you could cover it w/ CE!! Also, this makes faux buttons flatter to mail!!

This truely is a challenge cause I'm a hoarder and have probably had these buttons in my drawer since the 1st challenge was posted! What fun and a good kick in the butt to get me to use my precious supplies.

Mini glue dots are a buttons best friend, they work wonders to get these things to stick with no drying time.

This is a great challenge. I have sooooo many buttons and I think that I've only used them once or twice on cards. Hopefully I will have time to play later today!
