Tips & Techniques – Button Tree Embies

I think it would be fair to say that I have an oversupply of buttons – it must be hereditary as my grandmother was the same, she even worked for Beutron).

So here’s a nifty way to play with your buttons and turn them into a cute embellishment – ready to use in scrapping or cardmaking.

Step One:

Assemble your tools and papers – you need a whole heaps of buttons, some glue (I used a hot glue gun), some paper scraps and a circle punch (although you could cut out a circle using a template).

Step Two:

Punch out a circle from your scrap paper or card. Ink the edges if you’s like that look.

Step Three:

Layer your circle with a buttono in the centre, then surround it with more buttons in a circle, filling in all the spaces as closely as you can.

Use your button Trees as embies on a card front (as seen below) or as cute embies on your scrapbook page!

  3. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.

    I think that you should publish more about this topic, it might not be a taboo subject
    but typically people do not discuss such issues.
    To the next! Kind regards!!
