I got to thinking....hmmmm...I have that circle die...it has four sizes of circles....
'The details at this point...one 4 x 4 chipboard square covered all four circles on my die. After die cutting, I ran one through my Xryon and made a sandwich. After I had doubled the thickness of the cut out, I used my sanding block to "blend" the edges, round the edges and distress the flat surfaces.
Using Tangerine Tango and the medallion from SU! Charming, I stamped the circles that were slightly smaller than the stamp. Then...
Center a hole from the mat stack over the center of the button and make a dot in the middle of each of the two adjoining holes.
Now the fun part...crop a dile time! Remember to keep the fingers out of the way. I noticed yesterday, I WAS keeping my fingers out of the way. A pinch from the crop a dile is quite painful.
The finished product! Now, I really don't need a button die!
Over the last two posts, I have shown how I talked myself out of a $54 plus shipping new release order. I already had the stuff...and it really didn't take longer to D.I.Y. as it would to use the ready made products. Plus, some of these steps...are fun....for me at least.
Have a moo-valous day!
