Loving the new Papermania Spots & Stripes collection. Here is a card I made using some scraps and buttons. Instructions below:
Strips of paper folded in half to form squares (so need to be twice as long as wide) various sizes, biggest was around 8cm x 4cm, all rounded with the X-Cut corner punch then given an aperture using the X-cut small circle die (or use a 1" punch). Buttons tied with cotton threat peep through the aperture. The sentiment is from one of the Urban Stamp sets and I used Papermania self-adhesive gems in the corners and one on the sentiment. Alladded to a square card with backing paper, ribbon and a border strip off cut from another project. Pips!

    Note added if I manage to post this comment - please don't be offended - but very difficult to leave comments as you have comment verification switched on - lots of people don't even realise and if it's all a mystery to you please just mail me and I will help sort it.

    1. Hi Brenda, you are a complete star and I am slightly less of a novice as a result! I've done what you suggested and turned off the the comment verification, and I've looked up how to add the widgetythingymajig for followers. Now I just need to find some! If there is any thing I can do to promote your wonderfulness on here or on FB please do tell and I'll follow up asap! Suz xxx
