Looking at your Stamps in a New Way Pt. 2January 12, 2011 8:06 am Cardmaking, Crafts, Holidays, Paper Crafts, Rubber Stamping

Do buttons with the shank on the back turn you off while paper crafting? I have wire cutters to cut them off, so that they will lie flat on my project (and I always wear glasses when I cut them.) But if they are metal, cutting them off is a no-go. So I decided to take advantage of this little speed bump (because the button is a VERY neat one!)
I embraced the dimension and added my metal button to the butterfly. I cut a small hole in the center of my die cut butterfly and pushed the button through the hole.
Then I pushed 2 decorative pins through the button hole.
I adhered the butterfly to my card with Therm O Web glue dots.
Decorative pins add such a cool touch to butterflies. I hope you give this a try, I’d love to see what you create!
