Button Hole Tutorial

Stampin' Up Heart Framelit Flower

I'm often asked where my ideas come from and, of course, I'm inspired by lots of different things and different people.

As a crafter (and I'm sure I'm not alone) sometimes I see something I like and I "dissect" it, I think to myself...

"how was that made?"
"I could make something like that if I just ...and I could use..".

This project began a little like that.

I saw someone making paper flowers, they had printed the basic shape from a CD, which is not really my thing,  the basic shape was a heart which started me thinking maybe I could make something similar with the heart framelits.

Convention was coming up soon (it was last November, it's taken me a while to get round to writing this) and I wanted to make some wow swaps for my Stampin' Up team members. I took the idea about the hearts and some inspiration from the button hole my little boy wore at my sisters wedding.

He was such a cute ring bearer!!

So my idea worked out (they don't always) and I am was pleased with the end result, as was the team, at least I think so.

The video tutorial is not one of my best as I haven't made one of these buttonholes since the convention but you should be able to follow it ok.
