Button Embellished Notebook and Another Giveaway!

It is really a button kind of week around here at Vitamin C!  I used these buttons as frames to decorate a notebook. Not the traditional use for buttons, but interesting.



To make one, you need:

  • round plastic buttons with a molded lip around the edge...these are from a BIG Bag of Buttons from Blumenthal Lansing 
  •  a notebook
  • a scrap of fabric in a rectangle as tall as the notebook
  • Dimensional Magic
  • seed beads, choose colors to go with the buttons
  • hot glue gun and glue


 Do this:
1. Glue the fabric rectangle to the notebook.

 2. Glue the buttons to cover the fabric rectangle. Make sure to plug up the buttonholes with glue so the dimensional magic does not soak down into the fabric when applied.

 3.  Fill the button with dimensional magic.

 4.  Pour seed beads into the button frame while the dimensional magic is wet.

I love dimensional applications on my notebooks!


And Now the Giveaway!

I love that dimensional magic product. I made a gorgeous Monroe button with it years ago...

Great point about filling in the button holes!

Thanks for sharing this with my readers at Creative Juice Thursday!

Oh my goodness! I was thinking that the buttons by themselves were fun, but the dimensional beads took it to a whole new level! This would make a great gift! :)

Thanks so much for joining my Weekend Bloggy Reading party. Have fun finding a new blog friend or two, and I hope you'll visit Serenity Now again soon. :)
