Use your scraps effecitvely - Tutorial Part 1

hi ladies,

    As promised, I have started my tutorials!.It is gonna be a 3 day tutorial series, starting from today, on how to use your scraps effectively!how do you like it?!

    I am a miser, when it comes to DPs.I am not ashamed to tell this..he..he.. I store even a small bit of PP, hoping that I would use it someday!! I knew that someday would nt come and I resolved to use them ,if not fully, atleast a part of them.So here you see the result of it.. :)

    Today we will see how to make buttons and epoxy stickers with Pattern paper!in any shape,color or design you want!!Sounds good?huh?!

    Take a chip board in the required size.I got quite a few of them with this year Diwali crackers..!I did a bit of recycling!If you do not have these, you can cut shapes from the carton box and recycle it!.

Stamp the required image , punch it and paste it on the chipboard.

Cut/punch the PPs in the chip board shape and paste on it.Now if you are making epoxy like stickers, paste the required sticker on the chipboard.

Apply Fevicryl Glue and Gloss generously over the chipboard!
Allow it to try for over 8 hours.

You need to prick any bubble that might have caught inside.. I did nt and you could see it in the photo..Look at the gloss over it!!! I really love it!!

     Now do you see these gorgeous buttons?!This needs to be thicker.So glue 2 chipboards together.After pasting the pattern paper, poke 2 or 4 holes through the chipboard..Apply glue and gloss carefully, leaving out the holes and let it dry.Alas!! You have gorgeous buttons!

     Hope you liked the tutorial..Come back tomorrow for the next part of this tutorial series!! Till then, have a great day!
