Tutorial Thursday with Kim

Hi girls!

This week I'll keep showing you how to create matching embellishments without buying them!

Let's start with these basic items. You will need a punch, your favorite kind of glue, paper glaze, chipboard and a piece of paper.

Punch once on your piece of your patterned paper and four more punches on your chipboard. (You can punch out 4 times on white cardstock but I prefer chipboard for the thickness of the embellishment.)

Glue them together. I added some distress ink too. You can sand the edge too for a "cleaner" look but I wanted some distress look.

Now punch 2 little holes with your crop-a-dile. (Yes the crop-a-dile can cut out 5 sheets of chipboard. Gotta love it!)

It isn't a surprise now, we're making a button. Don't punch your holes too near of the heart border. You see in this one the first hole (left one) is too close.

I added some paper glaze on the button for a nicer finish. I let it dry for 24 hours. Added a little ribbon. Tada! Finish!

Cutie isn't? Hugs and kisses!
