What To Do With Big Buttons

I was chatting away in my local craft store recently, CJ Cardcrafts about buttons of all things. Big, plastic, multi coloured buttons. And in the course of the conversation, I said I'd try and come up with some card ideas which incorporated them.

So it was, with a handful of buttons, all in my favourite sea-green colour, I came up with three cards, in different styles. I had free reign in the design, all that was asked, was that I make them pretty lol





Hope they'll be well received. I'll be popping along there later on. Regardless, I enjoyed coming up with ideas for the humble plastic fastener.

Thanks for popping by

All three are great, Paul! I am going to go through my button jar tomorrow and try to use at least one button in a project. You have inspired me!
