Button, button, who's got the button???

Buttons are always a great way to jazz up any layout or card. Add a little hemp, stick on a glue dot, viola..... instant cuteness!!! But do you ever wonder.... how else could I use this button? Wonder no more! Thanks to Julie Reynolds (sister CTMH consultant) and many other fabulous consultants, she compiled this great list of techniques and uses for buttons! Try some out and I would love to see what you come up with!!!

Buttons: Techniques & Uses
Julie Reynolds – July 2009
Thanks to many for their contributions!
Customize by adhering BT or CS underneath with Liquid Glass.
Glue on small piece and let dry
Cut around with scissor
Sand edges with sanding block
Place ties through button holes, creating criss-cross, single or double lines, knot or bow
Waxy flax
Embroidery floss
Cardstock strip
Narrow ribbon
Use brads to place in holes
Apply Rub-Ons to buttons
Distress colored buttons with paint – “Shabby Chic”
Delta Ceramcoat Paint
Create-a-Shade Paint
Distress colored buttons with sandpaper
Custom-color Ceramcoat Paint with re-inkers and cover, apply stripes or polka dots
Apply knotted ribbon or bow with Mini-Glue Dot
Stamp an image on cardstock and adhere button over top with Liquid Glass
“Bling” buttons up by adding sparkles

Use as letter “O” when spelling a word with stamps or dimensional elements (or number “zero”)
Use white buttons for “bubbles” on a baby bath scrap page
Use in multiples to create an image, ie: arrange in a triangle to make a tree, or stack 3 to make a snowman
Centers on flowers:
metal-rimmed paper tags
paper flowers
dimensional element flowers
Use as flowers, adding stems (hand drawn, waxy flax, stamped) and making a bouquet of buttons
Use for pull tabs on hidden journaling boxes
Make a cluster of buttons for photo corners
Adhere a button to cover those adhesive spots that show when gluing down vellum
Adhere with Liquid Glass to make:
Magnets for white boards or refrigerator
Thumb tacks for bulletin boards
Add to dimensional element letters for pizzazz
Let your imagine go: butterfly/insect heads, Christmas tree ornaments, train or car wheels, snowman or animal eyes, a pom pom for Santa’s hat!
