Happy Monday Bloggers!
This week's tip offers a way for you to get a high quality, dimensional look on your crafting projects with something that has been around for many, many years.
That something is buttons.
Buttons come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
You can use buttons as centers for your flowers, as a dangle or bauble to thread through twine/ribbon or as a cute embellishment for cards. No matter what your use you can't deny the power they have to turn your layouts, cards & home decor into wonderful, dimensional works of art from the heart.
Buttons are readily available in all craft stores. They carry those that come with shanks and those without for the flat effect and better adhesion to your card & paper crafting projects.
You can easily find buttons at thrift stores, antique shops and garage sales for super low prices. Those are jackpot finds because often times there are some vintage, unique, one of a kind buttons that you just cannot find anywhere else.
If you find buttons that have shanks that you need to remove for your project there is a tool out there to help you do just that.
Stay tuned for Tool Time Tuesday to see what it is & find out how it works.
Hope you gather up an impressive button collection for your next crafting extravaganza. Make sure to check out the antique shops, Goodwill, Salvation Army and garage sales near you. They are bound to have a bagful at the right price.
You can save lots of money purchasing them this way.
