I have jars and jars of buttons (!) so when I saw this idea of creating a tree with them, I jumped on it! (And it didn’t even leave a dent in my button jars) I started by making a triangle the size that I wanted for the card and then choosing buttons, pearls and beads to fill it in. Some of the buttons are various clear buttons from SU that I backed with Comfort Cafe Designer Series and Silver Glimmer paper. I threaded most of them with linen thread – some are just topped with pearls.
Sometimes I think Stampin Up is looking in my window because as soon as I decided to add the Tiny Tags “Merry”, it went on the Retiring List! (So hurry up and grab it before it’s gone!) The Snowflakes are cut with my Snow Flurry die – which is steel ruled and cuts through the Glimmer paper beautifully. I added lots of Dazzling Details – sparkle, sparkle!
Stamp Set – Tiny Tags
Card stock – Whisper White, Neutral Pack, Soft Suede, Comfort Cafe Designer Series paper, Silver Glimmer paper
Ink – Soft Suede
Etc – BUTTONS!, Snow Flurry die, linen thread, Dazzling Diamonds, glue, pearls, beads
I think there are lots of designs that could be done with buttons – so grab your jars of buttons (please tell me you have them too) and start creating! Hugs, Fran
