Here’s a fun way to sauce up plain old buttons: Turn them into shabby little buttons. They are fun, cute and “oh so” easy.

All you need is a couple scraps of fabric, glue, buttons, scissors, floss and scissors. A nail file is helpful, too, but not necessary.

Start by coating one side of a button with glue.

Press the button into a piece of fabric. Let the glue dry.

Trim away the excess fabric.

Use your fingers or a nail file to distress the edges of the fabric.

Use a needle to thread some floss through the button. Be sure to knot it in the back.

When you are ready to use the buttons on a card, just use Glue Dots to adhere them to your project. These buttons are the perfect accent for saucing up cards and scrapbook pages. Check out how I used a few of them. Cute, huh?

Have a good day!
