Magazine Challenge #10

 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!
