Butterfly Button Jar

I keep my buttons in an assortment of jars by color. I started playing around today with one of my jars and I thought I’d show you what I came up with. Amazing what you can do with a little tissue, a strip of drawer liner and a pretty butterfly stamp.

I cut my flower parts (Sizzix Bigz 657116 3-D Wrapped Flower) with a from plain old white tissue (the kind you use with presents…lol). I cut four layers of each size and then colored them quickly with Touch Twin markers (YR24, Y35)

I assemble the flowers parts with Flower Soft glue.

Here is the finished flower.

I stamped and colored the butterfly (655889 Hero Arts/ Sizzix Framelits Butterflies 3) with Touch Twin markers and cut out with the matching Framelits Die. I added some Diamond Stickles for a little bling on the wings.
