Make a Wooden Button

Hello all and Happy Wednesday. I hope you all are well. I on the other hand am still dealing with Sprout issues. Did I mention that at 8 months old, she is now crawling? So she grabs everything in sight, bumps her head a LOT, cries all the time day and night, and is still adorable. I guess with age comes patience - so thank the Lord I'm OLD!!
Today I'm sharing a super quick way to make a 3D embelishment.  Here is another use for those wooden shapes you might have laying around.  Make a coordinating button for your creation.
Pick your paper, and your wooden shape - does NOT have to be a circle.
Put glue or Mod Podge on your wooden shape.
Place shape on wrong side of DP - I make sure to press down on the shape for full glue coverage.
Allow to dry (doesn't take long at all), cut around shape with scissors or xacto, and use a nail file to soften edges.
Use Cropadile to punch holes.  Hint: punch down slowly.
Add to your creation.
 I'm using Bugaboo's AKV Baby Blocks for my baby tag, and now the button is the same as the DP.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Petite Pairs and I added a little sewing.  Thanks for stopping by.  I will be linking this up with Tatertots & Jello, Flamingo Toes, Skip to My Lou, and Inspire Me Fridays.

LOL, oh you aren't old.. It's so hard to believe she's 8 months old and crawling.. She will always be adorable (well until she's around 12 years old, then she will get an attitude..) Enjoy them while they are little..
Very creative making a button to make your project..

Nice thought I like your thought I tell you something You can Special Summon this card easily if you banish "Obelisk the Tormentor" and "Slifer the Sky Dragon" (with cards like "Gold Sarcophagus") while you control "The Winged Dragon of Ra". Simply use "Return from the Different Dimension" to summon "Slifer" and "Obelisk", and then Tribute all 3 for an Instant Win.ID Card Maker

Thanks for the inspiration and a reminder of how to use up some of those wooden and chipboard pieces sitting in a drawer!
