It's Thursday so it's time for another tutorial! :)

Today I'll tell you about a very easy way of making some handmade buttons from clay!

It's very simple...

soften some clay (I used Fimo), roll a small portion and flatten with your finger. Stamp into it to get some texture and make two holes. Carefully peel it and put on a baking tray. Bake as per manufacturers instruction. 

I've made this card using some paper thread and handmade buttons.


I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Black, White + One More Colour @
Cold and Frosty @
Background Stamping @

Have fun! Clay is so versatile and using buttons you've made yourself is so much fun! I made loads of buttons in different colours at one go and now if I need any I have a stash. :)

And YEAH! I've won the candy! :)
