Button Tag

This project is for a swap - to make/alter 3 or 4 buttons and present on a tag. Mine has 'grown' a bit ... I really enjoyed making this ...

... it's based on these gift card tags I made a while ago. The main tag is a 6" x 4" chipboard piece covered in K & Co patterned paper with a pocket at the bottom. The tag in the pocket is 5" x 3". The buttons are layers of cardstock punched out with a 1" punch and glued together (6 layers I think), topped with script paper, holes punched, edged with Black Soot Distress and glossy accents on the top. The flowers are Tattered Florals die, the leaves a Sissix die and the butterflies are Martha Stewart punches. I made the charm which is clipped onto the side mainly from old jewelry.

The back has a place for a gift card (I have substituted an ATC for the swap) and I have used a Stampington stamp to decorate the back of the button card.


Thank you for taking the time to comment - it is much appreciated
