Attaching Buttons to a Layout or Card

A question was posed today on one of my scrapbook lists asking the best way to attach buttons to your layouts or cards.

If you want the true sewn on button, you can pierce the paper with the needle and then sew your button onto your layout or card. The problem I see with this is the greater possibility of your page actually ripping over time.

I personally suggest putting your threads on your button, and the attach it to your layout using one of the following:

Glue dots
Embellishment Adhesive (Making Memories or Pioneer make embellishment adhesives)
Diamond Glaze
Beacon 3-in-1 glue
Aleen's, Martha Stewart, JoAnns or any brand of Tacky Glue

While this is not an ll inclusive list of adhesive methods, it does give you ideas on how to add buttons safely to your paper crafts!

Keep on Crafting!
