Cuttlebug Challenges: Provo Craft Countdown Be Inspired #41

For this challenge we had to alter something and add something that we recycled to our project. I came up with a brand new twist. This is
a recipe book designed by my good friend, Diane Tuggle, that I decided needed a few finshing touches. (Make it more personal...yooooou know.) I was about to add a row
of buttons that I have pulled off old cloths, but then...something hit me.
If I use my cuttlebug folder, I can make fake buttons. Now how is
that for recycling!


Never had to use buttons to begin with. Saved glue dots too!
And...I think...it looks just as cute! FLOORED MYSELF! {lOl}

This is just adorable, Ramona! I love how the colors play off one another...kind of a lovely shabby chic effect. And the embossed buttons are perfect. Love the layout too. A very cute creation!

Very creative! I really like how you made your fake buttons with your cuttlebug folder. As soon as I saw this I thought to myself- I have to get this folder and then it hit me! I just bought this folder this past weekend and I didn't even realize that the buttons were in the package that I bought. I'm glad that I looked.

Holly said...

Darling job! I've looked into a button die for my Big Shot, and this certainly makes me consider it even more!

Grace said...

Those CB'd buttons are the cutest I've seen done with that folder!!! Just the perfect touch!
