Do you like the look of buttons but not the bulk or weight they add to your cards? I started to make my own buttons using a button die. Start by die cutting the buttons with coordinating papers. Press the top side of the paper onto a VersaMark pad and dip into clear embossing powder and heat set. While the melted powder is still warm, dip into the powder again – heat set again. One more time dip the melted powder into the embossing powder and heat set again. You should have a nice shiny button to use on all of your projects!
