MY BUTTON PROJECT:
I love all the yummy buttons in the Taylored Expressions store - especially the Clear Buttons - because you can make SO many fun buttons by combining them with different Designer Papers!!!
Here is what I made using the Clear Buttons, with the August Key Ingredients (which I think is one of my FAVE Key Ingredients and the Perfect Package Card Box (specifically designed to hold A2 cards! :
Here is a closer peek:
All of the papers, ribbon, bling, rub ons and cardstock are from the August Key Ingredients. The rest of the project is made up using the Clear Buttons from TE, Perfect Package card box from TE, spellbinders, and adhesive!
Can't wait to see how you ROCK the BUTTONS!!!!
And stay tuned for Jackie who is going to be next with the last challenge!
