My Tutorial is all about making your own buttons. If you have ever had trouble matching your buttons or just finding the right one for your card or layout...well here is the answer.
Assemble all the materials you will need...
(you can use just about any punch or die cut that you want).
Punch out (6) of the shapes you are using...
Use a tacky quick dry glue and glue (5) of the shapes together. They should look like this:
With the last one of 6 shapes you can emboss it,stamp it or anything else you can think of...
Lightly sand all the edges with a sanding block or fine sandpaper until the edges are smooth and look rounded slightly. Next rub the edges lightly with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink or any ink that you have.
You will need to mark the button where you need your holes. I used the SU paper piercing mat and a pencil to mark my holes and the used my Cropadile to make the holes. I have also used my Provo Craft punch tool for smaller holes.
The final result!!!
Here is another sample of buttons that I have made:
Here is my card with the button and the image you can get free:
