Custom Chipboard Buttons + Distressed Paper Circles by Carla Marchee

My Creative Scrapbook Design Team member Carla Marchee is here today to share some fun techniques that she used on her layout featuring our January Limited Edition Kit.

Here's Carla...

I like to share how to make custom chipboard buttons like I have done with this design.

you will need the following items:

* cardstock
* Embossing Ink
* Heat Tool
* Circle punch
* Crop-a-Dile
* Melt Embossing
* Tweezers
* Alcohol Ink

STEP 1: Punch a circle out of cardstock paper.
Punch holes into the center of the circle to make it look like a button

STEP 2 : Just embossing ink ,so that powder stuck on the button.

STEP 3 : Now, apply glossy embossing emamel clear finish onto the button

STEP 4: Heat it up so it get melting.

STEP 5: This how it look like

STEP 6: few drops squeeze of Alcohol Ink on your buttons so it get blending.

Step 7: so it look like buttons in different colors and sizes

I hope you give this a try it's so cool to do. 


I thought I would share a distressing technique.
Here is my step-by-step and explaining how I distress my paper circles

Step 1: Cut out a circle , Next take a distress tool and distress the edges

Step 2: then Ink the edges.

Step 3: do the embossing ink pad randomly the circle edges

Step 4 : Embossing powder to emboss on the edges

Step 5: than heat it up with the heatgun

Step 6: than stitching around the edges

Step 7 : Making pearls around the edges

Thank you for watching see you next time
