Crafty Creations - Make your own buttons

Magda has challenged us at Crafty Creations
to make our own buttons this week!
This was great fun. I used a punch to cut out two sizes of scalloped circle.
joined them together with eyelets. Hand cut stems and leaves.
Threaded stem through eyelets added leaves with eyelets.
Then stuck fabric flowers to the back.
I used Cosmo Cricket Material girl papers
to create my easel fold card.
We are all sad to be saying farewell to Magda this week
she will be sadly missed, but we expect
to see lots more creative work from her in blogland.

Pop by Crafty Creations to see the lovely projects this week from the DT!
You could win a lovely prize from Pixiepetals.
