Faux Buttons

Have a few hours to try a new technique? Haha! Only joking, but it is true that this one takes some time....a few months ago, my fellow demonstrator, Cheryl Robinson, showed me how to make faux buttons out of Designer Series paper....and then I saw this sample in the exclusive magazine that SU! sends to all it's demos...this one uses 1/2 inch circles and doesn't cover the top with Crystal Effects (to make a glossy button like Cheryl did--she also used a larger circle punch) I changed up the orientation of the card and changed the ribbon....basically, you have to punch out 6 circles for each button you want to make, glue together with Crystal Effects and allow to dry...then punch 2 button holes in each with the Crop-a-dile...lots of fun, but not a quick card!
