The first thing I started with were these:
Oh how FUN!!! I went through my PTI buttons and found the perfect sized buttons in lots of different colors! I used a flower punch to punch the shapes from an old book and from old sheet that I picked up at an antique shop for a quarter! I had so much fun making these and they went so fast! I have quite a few left over to use on future projects too! Next on my list is to make these with felt and twine from The Twinery!!
I made 20 or so cards just like these! I went through all my PTI scrap cardstock pieces and found scraps just the right size for the borders and used a border punch on them. I also used a quickutz folder to emboss the background (yes, that got old running all those through the Big Shot I have to admit, LOL!).
It was so fun mixing different color combination together, some of which I never would have thought of but since the button is such a small splash of color, there were so many possibilities that would work and not overwhelm the card!
These were fun to make! I love how just adding a tag to your card can really dress it up fast!
Also, I just added some new button rings to my Etsy shop (several of which use PTI's buttons!!) and wanted to share those with you real quick. If you are interested in visiting my shop, you can click on the Etsy link to the right or click here.
