Merry Monday #118 - Button Christmas Tree

Welcome to a new week at Merry Monday and it's time for a new challenge.  Lori is challenging us to use Ribbon and Buttons on our card. This a fantastic challenge to use up some of those buttons stashed away in your cupboards, I know I have far too many.  I used a Clear button for the trunk of the tree and covered it with Washi Tape. I cut out the triangle shape for the tree and then covered it with buttons that I had threaded twine though or added a crystal in the centre. A good project to do with your children or grand kids and relatively easy to do.

Stamps: S/U's Party Punch for Sentiment
Card and Papers: Real Red, Whisper White, Gold Foil, DSP Simply Scrappin' Kit Wish
Ink: Real Red
Finishing Touches: Various Buttons, Crystals, Strawberry Red Bakers Lustre Twine, Key Lime Baker's Lustre Twine, Washi Tape
Cool Tools: 1" Circle Punch, Spellbinders Classic Circle Nestabilities, Dble Sided Tape, Tombow Multi Glue
