Technique corner: Create your embellishment - Button tree

I usually have only an idea when I sit down to create a LO. I start working and then the ideas start to flow. But sometimes I have an idea but not the specific thing I want to use. This time I wanted a tree beside the path I created, but since this LO was for the Kit of the Month by My Punch I had to use the materials in the kit and there was no tree. So, I decided to create my own.

Here's how you can create your own tree:

1. Cut the shape of the tree from a cardstock.

2. Color it with ink, acrylic paint or any other medium you like.

3. Add different size and color buttons as leaves.

Creating your own embellishments gives you a chance for creativity and allows you to use an embellishment that is suited exactly to your project!
