Cute as a Button

Hi Everyone! Happy Friday! Today I made this "canvas". It measures 8 1/2 x 11. OK, really, it is just plain ol' cardboard - probably a ceral box, but "canvas" sounds way more artsy. :) I started with this cute Owl Tree stamp from Lindsay's ShopHandmade Store and it's only $1!! I had it in my stash and thought it would be fun to use again. You can also find tons of fun stamps, papers and SVGs in her Mygrafico Shop.
The buttons on the tree were made with a sizzix die that I found at Joann's (40% off) and some hemp. If you don't have a button die, you can make your own buttons with a paper punch. Click HERE to go to a fabulous tutorial by our very own Lindsay and she will show you how! That's all for today. Have a great weekend!!!
