Two Minute Technique: Embossing Buttons

By | 02/17/2013

I decided to try adding something besides a bow or a pearl to my buttons.  I tried embossing them!  It’s a really fun effect and fairly simple to do.

embossed buttonsI generally don’t like plain buttons,  I always feel like they need to have a bow, a knot or some bling like a rhinestone or a pearl.  This time I decided to try the new Pool Party Embossing Powder around the edges of the buttons.

You could cover as much or as little of the button as you’d like.  You can also be as fussy or as free with the edges as you’d like.  You can see that I wasn’t too fussy here.  A small paint brush before you use your heat tool actually cleans up the edges nicely.

Materials for today’s card:

Paper:   Very Vanilla card stock cut at 4-1/4 x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2″.  I also used a strip of leftover paper from Parker’s Patterns Designer Series Paper#131021).
