DIY Button Tutorial and one last Kit Club Project- Boys Rule Kit Club

Hi there!

I have a fun little DIY button tutorial to share with you today, this tutorial and project were created with the Boys Rule Kit Club January / February kit contents.

What happens when you do not have the exact button you need?  This has happened to me a few times, especially when scrapbooking away from home.  What do you do?  Well, you make one of course!


You only need a few basic supplies, paper of your choice, a 1/2 inch circle punch or die cutting machine, a piercing tool, white glue (not shown) and some Glossy Accents.  Now you are ready to go!


After punching a half dozen or so circles, adhere them together with the white glue, this will give your DIY button some depth.


You want a nice tidy stack like this, set them aside to dry. Once they are dry, top with a nice coat of Glossy Accents and let dry once again.  Do not be impatient like I was when creating this tutorial ;) ! Your button should be nice and clear at this point not cloudy.


Now pierce two little holes, just like a button would have.


This is pretty much what your button should look like.


And this is what it should look like set into place on your project.


And this is my completed page, as you can see I really needed something in that corner. 

Here are a few close up shots of my page....




As the title says, I had so much fun using up the last of my kit contents! Just in time to get ready to start a brand new month!

Thanks for visiting!
