Welcome to my final project in this series, some love buttons that you can make yourself:
They're easy and fast to make - are you seeing a pattern here? I love easy and fast craft ideas! They also make a nice gift to give a crafty friend. Here's what you'll need:
♥ Polymer clay (sculpey/fimo)
♥ Sculpey glaze - I like to use it because it gives the buttons a lovely shine
♥ A teeny tiny heart cutter - we bought ours from a $2 store in a kids cookie cutter set (for playdough)
♥ A thick darning needle - to make the holes with
♥ Foam mounting tape + white card - if you want to give the buttons to a friend
Roll out your Sculpey and use a mini heart cookie cutter to cut out some buttons.
Make two holes in the mini hearts with a thick darning needle.
Once the holes are all done you can pop them in the oven to cook - follow the directions on your polymer clay label. Mine had 10 minutes at 130 degrees.
Once they're out of the oven, add a layer of Sculpey glaze to make them all nice and shiny.
If you're giving the buttons away, secure them onto a mini sheet of white card with a small piece of foam mounting tape behind each button.
Also, just a reminder that if you pop over HERE, you'll be able to find my tutorial for making your own fabric love album:
