Craftaholics Craft Pad
White Hearty Clay
Katy Sue Designs Buttons Mould
6x6 Classic White Box
Gingham Card and Peel Offs
White Thread + Needle
Lightly dust your mould with cornflour and fill the buttons with Hearty Soft White Clay. Carefully pop them out and allow to dry.
Once the buttons have dried paint them with paint, our design team member Shabneez used acrylic paints. You could also use colour clay instead to avoid painting.
Make up the base of the Classic White Box, take a look at the video below on how to make it. Next line the base with pink hammered card cut to 14.5cm square to fit this 6x6 box.
Cut your image from the Craftaholics Craft Pad to 14cm square. Shabneez used a stitched die. Next, take your buttons and stitch them with a needle and thread to your topper. Alternately you could glue the buttons direct to the card.
Die Cut the word ‘BUTTONS’ and adhere to the left hand side of the image.
Adhere the topper to the Gingham card cut to 14.9cm square. Stick this on to the front of the box lid before you make it up as it is easier to make sure it has stuck on properly. Make up the box lid and line with pink card like the base.
Cut 4 strips of blue gingham card to 14.9cm x 1.8cm and stick the stitching peel offs to all of them. Adhere these strips on all sides of the box.
