How to.... "denim buttons"


"denim buttons"

1... draw and cut cloud/circle shape from scrap denim
2... stamp cloud shape with paint and bubble wrap... allow to dry
3... use a croc-a-dile and hole punch holes and then set with eyelets
4... thread wool thru / knot and finish by fraying the edges... mount using 3D tape

for the demin circle buttons...same instructions but instead of stamping a design...use embroidery thread and add stitches
...
"comic book paper flowers" - any sort of book will do - even scraps of pattern paper just layer the sheets together so you punch just the once of each size... no mucking about that way!

1... 3 different size circle punches
2... hold 5 pages together and punch
3... now layer the 3 sizes on top of each other
4... use your croc-a-dile punch hole, add a brad
5... use scissors to fringe it... now have fun and scrap them


coming soon are my scrapjack layouts and a couple of layouts using my printables doodles......

Thanks.... Miss wally

Edit to add: this talented lady "Lucy" has a great tip too... she suggested to apply a gel medium to help stiffen the denim... love it thanks heaps....

Very clever, Miss Leeann!! I was thinking you could stiffen them up with a couple of coats of gel medium, too.....hmmmm....not to add anything to your tutorial. ;)

Hope you have a great weekend!
