Make Your Own at the CRAFT Challenge #308

Hi!  Hope the week is treating you well and that you have time to join in this weeks CRAFT Challenge - Make Your Own.  Our sponsors this week are:


My image this week is from Sweet 'N Sassy.  This is Spot the dog and I made my own buttons to match the background paper.  To make these buttons, I just stamped some dots on kraft cardstock,  punched circles (4), glued them together and used a paper piercer to poke the button holes.  I then coated the "button" with glossy accents and let them dry.  I had to go back to pierce the button holes again after the glossy accents were dry.  I will definitely be making more "buttons" in the future.  I'm sure I was inspired by someone else, just not sure who to give the credit to.  

For more information about this weeks challenge and more inspiration from the design team head on over to the CRAFT Challenge Blog.  Can't wait to see what you come up with!
