Hippity Hop!

It's our first ever blog hop over at Scrap That! Each DT member will be posting different techniques using buttons :) Hope you enjoy all the creations and maybe learn something fun and new!


I actually saw Beth stack buttons like this on a project recently and thought they would make cute flowers. I was making this with kids running around and in hindsight realize that I probably should have tied a ribbon on the top button, lol. I might go take it apart and do that! Anyway, still cute flowers I think. I also use buttons a lot on acrylic accents like the butterfly. They draw the eye to the accent and help cover your adhesive ;)

Riley thought it would be fun to make a card while I was scrapping this one. He used the same button technique (ok...I put them together, but he picked them and placed them on his card :)). Here's his creation:


Pretty good, I think :)

So, stop at the Scrap That! blog and leave a comment and then hop on over to all the DT blogs :) You can find all the girls here:


Have fun!!

Lovely color combo on the card - and the buttons are too cute - I will have to try it on my next LO. I think you have a budding artist in your son!!

Your card is great and bling is great on the center of the flower, I also sometimes use small seed beads, a little tedious but really make great centers.
Your son's card is so cute, just love it..........
