Project Tutorial by: Erin

We have a special treat for you today! Erin, one of our Designers, put together an exta tutorial to show you how she made the adorable embossed buttons in this layout!

Embossed Button Tutorial
1) Supplies - buttons, heat tool, embossing power, tweezers, and pigment ink

2) Press the button into the ink and make sure that there is a good coat of ink on the button so the embossing powder will stick.

3) Coat the button with embossing power (I used clear since I used brown ink). Using your tweezers hold the button and heat it with your heating gun. Make sure all the powder is melted. It will bubble and swirl the ink around on top of the button, that is the effect you want. Let the button cool and use as normal.

4) You can play with all kinds of colors of ink, buttons, and embossing powders to create tons of fun colors. You can even double dip with a second color to create a 3 tone effect if you want.

Have fun with this and I hope you get some fun results!!
