Cute as a Button

Buttons are an inexpensive scrapbooking element that can add so much to a page design.

· Use buttons to ‘hang’ elements on
· Scatter buttons randomly along one edge of a page for a great 3-D border
· Place buttons all around a photo or a journaling block to make a photo frame
· Use those old brown and beige buttons that you can never find a use for to make ‘sand’ at the bottom of a beach page

Don’t limit yourself to the buttons on your husband’s work shirts, feel free to experiment with specialty buttons as well.

You’d be surprised what you can find in your local craft store. They have buttons shaped like everything from flowers to army helmets to letters so you can use them on any kind of layout.

Whether sewn in place or simply fastened with an adhesive, buttons can make your pages pop.

You’ll love ‘em!
