Buttons, Buttons ... Home-made Thomas Kinkade Button
So today over at Papertrey Ink (Nichole Heady's blog - see the link at bottom right of my blog) they are showing off their great new idea ....Buttons!! Are you kidding me???? Brilliance!!!
To enter to win, Nichole wanted us to create a project with buttons. Well, this is my card. There is a lot of "old items" used up on this card. Let's see....
I guess the first thing is the button. I had a Thomas Kinkade calendar that was beautiful. Once it was finished, I was looking at it before ...gasp ... throwing it away. I noticed on the back of the cover there were SMALL scale photos of each page ... perfect to add to cards or something ... so of course I kept it!! Then I saw some awesome buttons on Jenni Bowlin's site that were made from "pictures" and realized that my small scale Thomas Kinkade pictures would be perfect for this. So I punched out a good piece of one image and then added 2 small holes in the middle and finished it off with some hemp. Here is a close up ... see those cute little swans swimming in the lake??!!
