TRR33 Button It!

It's time for another challenge at The Ribbon Reel. This week, lovely Pauline challenges us to use BUTTONS on your creation with RIBBON and TWINE.

I have used a digital stamp image from 'MyGrafico' to create a little glass jar in which to hold all my gorgeous Ribbon Reel Buttons!


I printed the jar image to a size of my liking and then ran it through my die cutting machine using Spellbinders Labels One. I then cut out the inside part of the jar and adhered some acetate onto the back of it to look like glass. I arranged all the buttons from The Ribbon Reel randomly onto a separate piece of cardstock using glue dots and then used foam adhesive to attach the jar on top of the buttons.  The fabric top/lid is paper pieced and tied with Pink Button Twine and a small Ivory Pearl Heart and the background is created using 'Tea For Two' papers by Cosmo Cricket and finished with some stunning May Arts Silk Ribbon in Champagne - all available to buy here from The Ribbon Reel.

Here's a close-up of that lovely sentiment and another view of all those beautiful buttons!
