I was having a bit of a sort out last night in my craft room. Am I the only one that bought packets of scraps about ten years ago and still have zillions left?
I thought I would use some up and make some medallions and buttons.
I glued the scraps onto poker chips using diamond glaze. I found it easier to glue the over sized scraps on to the chips and when they had dried I ran a craft knife round the edge of the chip. I put some distressing ink around the edges and then varnished them with paper glue. I then ran a gold pen around the edge.
Here are some buttons I made using poker chips and some pretty papers. I drilled holes in the chips before I covered them with paper. I varnished over the paper. When the paper varnish was completely dry I used a small pin to mark where the holes were and then gently pushed a cocktails stick into the holes from the top. I think when I make some more I will use a slightly bigger drill bit.
These are just under 4 cm in diameter and 3 mm deep.
Best Wishes Florence.
