Button Button!

A friend of mine (Joann!) showed me a card she had made using the most adorable button punch by Martha Stewart. She told me she got it at Michael's. Well, after I left her house I headed for Michael's to purchase this adorable punch!

This punch not only punches out the button and button holes but it also embosses it so it's got raised and lowered parts. Click on the photo for a closer view to see what I'm talking about.

After I punched my buttons I took some linen thread and tied it on the buttons. I found some cute decorative paper in a pack I had gotten at Archiver's and I put it on the top of a piece of Apricot Appeal card stock. I stuck the buttons on over the area where the edge of the decorative paper is. It took 7 buttons to cover that area.

I needed a "thank you" card so I stamped the words on the bottom part of the card and it's ready to go! What is really great about these buttons is when they go through the mail they won't cost me any extra in postage!!! Gotta LOVE that!!! Aren't they adorable? They are SO quick to make too. As much as I LOVE die cuts I LOVE punches a bit more because they are quicker!

This card can be used for SO many different occasions too. I can see myself using this punch on a lot of cards!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Oh, I love this punch!I dont like using regular buttons because they are so bulky and this will solve that problem! I have to go into town tomorrow so I think I feel a stop at Michaels coming on

This is a wonderful punch I love to use buttons on my creations and the no extra postage thing is a total plus for going out and getting one. Great layout for them on this card and I love the DP.
