The next challenge in the 75 Creative Card Challenges Magazine is to use buttons that you create. I have tons of buttons ready to go, but these buttons had to be made from scratch. I decided to use burlap paper and since I do not have a circle punch, I cut the circles out by hand. I am sure the paper was too thick for my CraftRobo cutting machine. I painted the buttons with picket fence distress paint and then added a little blue stain. I tied the buttons with embroidery floss but I didn't like the clumped up floss. I used my new Tim Holtz tool to fray the thread. I also used the scratchy tool to distress the vintage fleur card. On to the next challenge!
