3D Paper SADIE & DIY Glass Buttons

Wow... It feels like a while since may last post! I have been crazy busy... between work, life and planning my sons birthday party for this weekend, I am ready to pull my hair out :(  I'll have posts on my sons "Star Wars" themed birthday crafts hopefully within the next few days! Stay tuned if you are a Star Wars fan :)

But first... I want to share with you the 3D paper name I made last week for my cousins friend.

These paper 3D letters stand about 6.5" tall. They were filled with some dried beans to keep them from toppling over. The 3D letters are from SVG Cuts 3D letter kit. The butterfly is from the SCAL library. Added some buttons, bows and a silk flower to dot the "I". Boy did I have a tough time making the "S"... I have made a few of these names in the past but never had to make an "S", maybe next time it will be easier!  The "A" and the "I" were embossed with the cuttlebug (hard to see in this picture). The paper I purchased at Micheal's in the open card stock paper section, sorry don't have the exact company names for them :(

Here are a few more close-ups.

I don't have a Epiphany Craft button make, but I really do like the look... I did though have glass beads and hot glue, so I made due! I think it turned out pretty cute and so simple. I found this idea on Pintrest here, so I knew I had to try it! 

So here is what I did...

 You need scissors, hot glue, paper, pen, and a flattened glass bead.

Write your message on a scrap piece of paper, and place a fair amount of glue on the back of the glass bead.

Press the glass bead centered on the message.

Cut around the bead.

And there you have a new glass button to embellish your project! Hope you liked this, I love how easy it was and I'm sure I'll be making more of these!

Happy crafting!
Ilda :)
