Handmade chipboard buttons

Hello everyone, welcome to the MyStamp BOX blog today.
Probably, just like me, you have drawers and boxes full of embellishements. All of them bought because they are so pretty and maybe one day you can use them, right?! And a lot of them you will use, that’s for sure. But sometimes with all these piles of lovely embellies you still can’t find the right ones to fitt your layout or project. Of course you can search the internet for the right one and order it online, hoping it will arrive the next day so you can finish your project… You can also decide to make your own unique embellishments to fitt your layout perfectly, just like I did.
This is a set of buttons I created using chipboard, scraps of paper, stamps and bottle of multi coat. You can use whatever scraps of paper you have that go with your project, creating a perfect match. And the nicest thing of all… the will be unique. Nobody will have them same :)
So, to start with I added Adhesive Sheets to the back of a variety of paper scraps and then punched out a bunch of circles in different sizes from the paper scraps as well as from chipboard.
Then I peeled off the back of the sticker circles I created and applied them to the chipboard circles.
After that I stamped on all the circles with a variety of stamps using Stazon ink.
After that I covered them with two layers of multi coat to give them a shiny finish.
Finally I used a real button as a guide to draw the place where the holes should go and then used my crop-a-dile to created the holes.
And ready!
Stamp sets used: Bottlecaps, Seal it!, Abundant Blossoms, Passport to Adventure.
I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial and inspired you to create your own lovely embellishments.
Thank you for stopping by! Happy stamping!
