How To: Holiday Buttons with Ribbon


Are you ready to start your holiday projects? I’ve got an idea for you to make some festive buttons to use on them – these are great for embellishments on cards, tags, ornaments, home décor…you name it! They can also be in any shape – as long as you can emboss it, you can turn it into a holiday embellishment!


Check out the video to find out how I made them – it’s such a fun technique!

These buttons were so fun to make that I think I’m going to borrow a friend’s tweens to help me make a bunch of them. What ways do you involve your kids in your crafting?  Leave a comment and let me know!
