Today's PTI challenge was to use buttons. Over my many years of crafting, I have used buttons to make ornaments, wreaths, decorate candles, strung as arms and legs of a shelf-sitter doll and sewn onto fabric for pillows to quilts. Today all I could handle was a card.
The Button Boutique release has made me a really happy stamper. I have collected many buttons and button cards, but now we can make our own. The image I used is from Sew Nice, a sheet of vintage prints by Heartwarming Vintage. The large tag is from Michelle Wooderson's Etsy shop and stamped with It's Official.
I made the flower using tissue I found on clearance in Target, half matching Raspberry Fizz and half matching Hawaiian Shores. It's cut with Beautiful Blooms II #1 die collection - the two smaller dies.
My big creative use of the buttons is to make my own stick pin from a corsage pin, removing the pearl and adhering a tiny pearl button. It's finished off with the Dress Form die cut, a MS tag stamped with Mixed Messages and some Raspberry Fizz buttons.
I just made, what I would like to call, a presentation pocket. I bought the bags (and the red gingham ones, too) from It's in the Bag!, Michelle Philippi's ETSY shoppe.
The festivities at PTI continue for four more days. Thanks for dropping by.
