Here's a tutorial on how to make the lacy flower button on the above card:
You'll need an 8" strip of the lace, a chipboard button and a needle and thread:
Start on one end of the flat side of the lace with a basting stitch along the whole length of the bottom of the lace:
When you get to the end, gently pull the thread taut:
Attach both ends of the lace with a stitch:
Now using the same basting stitch, follow the end up to the outside perimeter to secure the two ends together:
Tie off the end with a knot and snip off the thread:
The end result of the outside flower...the back of the button is a sticker, but to make it look 'authentically' sewn on, we're just going to put a couple of stitches on the button:
The stitch will also help to secure it a bit better, but you only need one or two stitches for the effect:
Voila! Finished product:
Lastly, here's an altered chipbook made with the contents of this kit (this kit is loaded with stuff!)
