A Month of ABC's - Bb

Today's post is brought to you by the letter B! And, by saying B, that means I'm going to show you a fun way to use buttons with your favorite GCD Studios papers: Decorate them! It's really easy to decorate a button. All you need is a few buttons, a couple circle punches, glue and a few pieces of patterned paper.

 Start by cutting some small circles with a circle punch from patterned paper. (I'm using papers from GCD Studio's Country Charm collection.)

 Add a little bit of glue to your button of choice. Press the paper circle onto the button to make sure it's fully 
secured to the button.


 The end result is something a bit like this.

Adhere them to your cards or scrapbook pages with a Glue Dot. I've got a couple cards to share with you today that use my decorated buttons. First up is this sweet little all-occasion card.


I used large buttons here and fairly large circle punches to cut the papers for them.


 And to keep with the button-y feel of the card, I dotted the "i" sticker with a button. I could have decorated it, but I decided to let it be. I also used my decorated buttons on this card.


 It would have been easy to just adhere them and do nothing else. But I decided to step things up a bit and wrap floss about them.


 I love the fun frame feel it gives the card. Supplies: Farm Field Stripe paper - Country Charm; Sweet Floral paper - Country Charm; Handycraft paper - Country Charm; Country Bloom - Country Charm See you again soon!
