Most of the projects I will be sharing with you for this hop are Christmas cards I made this year during a Christmas in July challenge.
I found this idea on Pinterest and thought I'd try it myself. I wanted to use non-traditional colors, so I chose blue and went through my button jar to find several blue and white or clear buttons I could use. I stamped the sentiment first, so I didn't have to deal with the lumps from the buttons. After drawing a circle very lightly, I adhered a piece of blue ribbon, then glued down (using glue dots) the buttons around the circle and filling in the center with as many buttons as I could fit. I'm really happy with the way this turned out!
