Tutorial Wednesday

Hi there!

It's Wednesday, already!  I know I cannot believe it either.  Today I wanted to share with you some tips on using the buttons in your stash - most of us have a pretty substantial button stash and we do not always think to use them on our projects.  Buttons are great, they are gender neutral and are a great finishing touch for every project.  So go ahead and pull yours out and try a few of these tips!

1.  Flower Centre - yes the most common use for buttons
2.  Embellish a Die cut to give it life - trees are especially great for this, try it at Christmas too!

3.  Fill in a Die Cut to give it oomph.
 4.  Butterfly centres.
5.  As a stand alone element.
6.  Top those tags.
7.  Turn a paper clip into an embellishment.
8.  Anchor your twine.
9.  As a design element.

10.  Button up your banner.

What about you, what is your favourite way to use buttons?

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Great tips! I'm always looking for ways to use my buttons!

  2. I love all the ways you talk about up there. I LOVE buttons and just realized I need more pink ones :) My fav way is to thread thru them and use them stand alone or as a flower center!

  3. ooo.. I love the Tree idea!!
    never thought of that one!1 :)
    Thanks for sharing such wonderful ideas!!
