Home Made Buttons

So I played with my clay more. Oh this is funny Stephen is used to Play-Doh, so for a few days he called the clay "Play" but I keep saying "It's Clay, with a Ca, "C" sound" so now he calls it "Ca-Play"

In any event I tried again on the neclace and also made some buttons.

Then I made a card with one of the buttons.

I pressed the Pretty Patern background stamp into the cut button. I did the holes with a toothpick. Then stitched it on with some linen thread. Easy peasy.

Supplies: clay by sculpy, perfect pearls (brushed on clay before baking), Pretty Patern Backgrounder and sentiment from Frienship Centers by Cornish Heritage Farms. And I don't have any idea where the rest came from. The flower is one of those open stock ones I get at my LSS and don't know where else to get them, the paper and ribbon all came in a kit I got with stamps a few months ago.
