Make your own Project Life flair buttons using Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio software (free 30 day trial)

Anyone who loves Project Life will know what a cool addition adhesive flair type buttons are to your pages and journallng cards. Imagine if you could easily make your own in colours that coordinated with the Project Life by Stampin' Up! card kits. You can and this video and step by step tutorial I put together will show you how. First here's some of the buttons I made this afternoon.

To get started, watch this video showing you how I created the button bases in The My Digital Studio Software. If you don't have the software, I'll show you a link to download a free trial at the end of the post.

 

Once you have printed your PDF file out onto Whisper White cardstock, use the stampin' up! 1.25" circle punch to cut out your circles perfectly. You will then have the bases for your flair buttons.

The clear epoxy domes that go on top are very easily purchased. Just google 'clear epoxy circles' and you will see a variety of places selling them. I purchased 100 very cheaply. They adhere directly over the top of the circles you punched out.

Next you want to make the whole button adhesive. there are several ways you can do this - just use an adhesive each time, use a sticker maker, or my preferred way is to use the Stampin' Up! adhesive transfer sheets. You just peel back the top, attach the button cardstock side down, put the top layer over and rub. You could put all your buttons on there until you were ready to use them and they would just peel off.

Then they are ready to use on your Project Life projects. I have used my Subway one on this journalling card which is going in my NYC album.

Hi Claire,
What size epoxy circles did you use?? I can only seem to find 1" ones. Thanks, and love what you have done :)

Bronwyn Eastley

Very cool, Claire!! Love these.

Paula Dobson

Awesome tutorial Claire. I really liked the epoxy buttons we got in the accessories kit at convention but was disappointed we only got two in the pack. I was excited to watch your video to learn to make my own. I have just joined eBay and ordered some for myself! Thanks!

Cori

What a super cute idea!!! Thanks for sharing!
