Don’t Push My Buttons…

on January 30, 2013

or cute as a button?  Have you heard these fun phrases?  Did you know that buttons can be very useful on a scrapbook page?  I tend to use them for clustering elements instead of flowers since I have boys.  I am going to show you a few other ways you can use buttons on a scrapbook page…check out what my team did for you.

A few other ideas I have for you that I found while searching online are:

  • create a border around your page
  • create words or use them for the letter “O” or the dot in the “I”
  • center of a flower
  • attach a photo, ribbon or tag to a page
  • create a bullet list for journaling
  • scattered on a page as bubbles or just randomly on a page
  • create a shape: heart, star or Christmas tree
  • use different shapes and colors of buttons to add interest as well.

Have you used buttons in your page for more than clustering?  I would love to see your pages!  Check back tomorrow for some fun paper scrapping pages and 3D projects that I have found online using buttons.
