There's a wonderful tutorial on SCS on how to make buttons using circle punches (I tried to put a link to it here but for some unknown reason it wouldn't work, sorry), a hole punch and some sort of dimensional layer, e.g. Dimensional Magic or clear embossing powder. It's a great idea as you can using the paper or card you're working with to make co-ordinating buttons for your project. I thought I'd have a play at making ribbon slides/buckles the same way, but using a slot punch for the 2 holes rather than the small round hole punch used for button holes. I was quite chuffed with the way they turned out. What do you think?
