Last week it was "I-TOP" week over at Imaginisce! My turn on their blog was last Thursday, did you see it? If not I'll show you here what I made and how.
Here's the layout I created, using Imaginisce's fabulous "Love You More" collection. The photos are of Patrick and I, sitting on the rooftop terrace of our hotel in Barcelona last October. The view from there was so amazing we went to this terrace every day!
And a few close-ups of the I-Top buttons I made:
I really loved to use the I-Top for my page. I've created both paper buttons and fabric buttons and love how they turned out. They are the perfect finishing touch for my page!
Want to see how easy it is to create these buttons with the I-Top??? Here goes:
1. Gather your supplies: I-Top tool, I-Top buttons, Paper Punches and patterned paper:
Step 4: Place your punched out paper over the button shell and squeeze your tool and release again.
Step 5: Flip your tool over and push down all the paper tabs:
Step 6: Flip the tool back up and place the button base on the metal head like this:
Step 7: Squeeze the tool closed again until you hear a popping sound which means the button clicked together. And that’s it, you have a perfect button!
Now if you want to create a fabric button the way to do this is more or less the same, but there is a slight difference, have a look.
Step 8: Gather your supplies: a piece of fabric (I’m using a 1€ coupon from Ikea), the right button size and punch and template (I chose the medium size again):
Step 10: Place the button shell on the smaller head of your tool (just like before) and place the piece of fabric over the button shell and squeeze the tool and release again:
Step 12: Push all the fabric ends down like this:
Step 13: Place the button base on the metal head (just like you did with the paper button) and again squeeze until you hear a popping sound so you know your button is ready! Don’t you just love your self-made buttons?
And that's it!! Super easy and an awesome result!
