Fun To Make Buttons

Hi everyone - Vicki here.  Today, I was inspired by a button photo I saw on Pinterest.

Here is my end result;
So, how did I make these buttons?

Punch out 5 circles per button
Using Echo Park DP, I punched 1 circle for the top, and I stamped them with Scripty Scripts. 
This patterned paper is from the Sweet Day collection kit, which was part of the May SP Monthly Kit.
After gluing all layers together, I punched 2 holes in each button using my crop a dial

 These buttons are flat, and not shiny just like the photo. For a couple of steps more, you can make these buttons look even more realistic.

Punch a 3/4 inch hole and using the 1" punch around the hole to get a ring
Glue 2 rings to the top of each button, and cover sides and top with glossy accents -- let dry at least an hour!

I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial on making your own buttons~  I hope you try them - they really are fun to make!
