With the embroidery floss and buttons, thread some floss through the button holes and tie them off in the back. Use a Mini Dot to make sure it stays down.
Use Mini Dots to adhere your paper flowers together to make a fuller flower.

I began crafting in 1996 and simply fell in love with making my own cards. Long live snail mail! Crafting isn’t just a hobby for me, but a way of life… Teacher gifts, posters, scrapbooks, wood crafts? Yes, please! I have been married to my cute husband for 16 years and he definitely inspires me to try new things and enjoying the little things. As a stay home Mom, my time is spent raising my two girls, and raising the bar for my gift giving!
