Faux Buttons

For today's Ways to Use It challenge on SCS, we were to use buttons on a card. I decided to make faux buttons using my circle punches. To create the "buttons", I punched a circle using the 1 1/4" circle punch for the base. The outer ring was created by punching a 1" circle, then centering the hole inside the 1 1/4" circle punch & punching again to make a ring. I colored the outer rings with markers in a slightly darker shade, then adhered to the base with two-way glue. The "buttonholes" were created with the circle BG image from Big Bold Birthday. The scalloped buttons were created the same way using the scallop circle punch and the 1 3/8" circle punch. The stripes were made with Classic Stripes BG stamp colored with markers, and the sentiment is from Smarty Pants. Colors are Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango, and Pink Pirhouette. TFL!
