My Birthday entry used buttons from the Vintage Cream and White collection, I wish you could see the buttons in real life! The middle one is especially fun! I colored a printed paper from the Black and White collection with the Limepeel Prisma marker. The flowers are Hibiscus Burst and Raspberry Fizz, cut out with a Sizzix die. Little Savvy Stamps flowers were threaded through the button holes and glued on. Sentiment is from Birthday Basics, of course, with cream twill and a few more buttons to finish it off!
I do cookies the weekend before Christmas, and often put cards on the ribbons without envelopes. Bigger than a tag but smaller than an A2 card, this will work well if I just punch a hole on the inside, and thread some curling ribbon through.
lol, here is my entry in the Big Black Button contest. I took the biggest black button, the one that wouldn't even fit in the jar, and covered it in black flocking. Strips of black cs with points at the ends became the legs; a couple of googlies brought him to life! I oopsed and gave him 6 legs before I flocked him. Later that day I watched a spider crawl by me downstairs (don't gasp, they catch the skeetos, just don't let them bite you, lol! Ok, come out of your faint, now!) and realized they have 8 legs, silly. That's how the 'BOO' tag was born.
The web is glitter through a brass stencil, held on with the Essential Glue pad tapped through the stencil. Polka Dot Basics 2 has the tiny dots; stamped on Summer Sunrise it sure makes for a wonderful Halloween background! I wrapped a bit of the darker twine around the corners of the web just for effect-
