Hey Buttons Galore friends and fans, I’m Becki. I’m thrilled to be here on the Buttons Galore blog today. I’ve been a crafter for years. And through those years many supplies have come and gone. Buttons, however, have always remained a staple in my stash. I always keep buttons! I am a scrapbooker/memory keeper. I chose to use lots of these buttons and sequins to create a scrapbook layout with a button title.

 When I sat down to create with such an awesome array of primary colored buttons and sequins, I wanted them to make a big impact on my layout. I chose to make a button title “read to me” with a huge emphasis on the word “read”.

Using a pencil, I traced the cut portion of the title onto another piece of white cardstock. I used this as a template for adhering the buttons and sequins.

For this portion of the project, I turned on Netflix and started gluing buttons and sequins in place. I started adhering the larger buttons first and then filling in the gaps with smaller buttons and sequins. I would recommend using a strong adhesive for this technique as the cardstock can buckle under the weight of the buttons.

When I had all the buttons and sequins adhered to the background cardstock I used foam pop dots to adhere the die cut “read” on top of the button/sequin layer to create this awesome button title.

The buttons and sequins made this layout stand out with TONS of bright colors and textures. I can’t wait to use this button title technique again! Thank you for stopping by the Buttons Galore blog today! I’ll see you again soon!
