Glitter Buttons

Monday, February 20, 2012



Time for another Make It Monday.  This week Ashely has a video using glittered buttons.  In her video she uses spray adhesive to apply the glitter.  I don't have spray adhesive so I used a dab of glossy accents and smeared it with my finger.  Sprinkle a little glitter and you're done.  By the time you are ready to adhere the buttons they are dry.

I used one of the window dies included in the 12 Kits of Christmas January Kit that Renee sent me.




I finally decided to pick up a few magnetic knife holders to hold some of my large/ most used dies. LOVE them!  I only bought three, but could use more!  The little blue CD boxes hold the rest of my dies.  I got the knife holders at Bed Bath and Beyond.  They allowed me to use 3/$5 off coupons.  I don't know about you, but I seem to get a new coupon every other day.  I love that they let you use as many as you can even if they are expired!
 I have also started storing my PTI inks flat as opposed to stacking them.  It was too much of a struggle to find the color that I wanted to use.  It works for now!



Cardstock: PTI White, Kraft, Spring Rain, Lemon Tart Bitty Box Basics Paper
Stamps: PTI Up Up and Away, Everyday Button Bits
Ink: PTI Chocolate Brown, Spring Moss, Memento Blue
Dies: PTI Double Ended Banner, Memory Box Window
Other: Fiskars Border Punch, Michael's Satin Ribbon, PTI Buttons

  8. How smart to put those balloons behind the window...wish I had thought of it! I don't have any adhesive, so that is a great tip about the glossy accents.
