Button Bags by Karen Owen!

August 14, 2008
I love the buttons!! These two bags were done for us by Karen Owen,  Look below the pictures for tips from Karen on how they were done. Ronda
With bag lying flat on a work surface, place assorted buttons around the card area. Use varying sizes and colors of buttons. I chose to use earth-toned buttons. When you are satisfied with the positioning, glue buttons to bag with fabric glue. For the cards to insert, I used collages I had previously made and scanned, and in Photoshop I sized the collages to fit the pocket. I printed them on heavy-weight matte paper and trimmed them to fit. For the B is for Bird collage, I tied on a hand-dyed silk scarf. For the Mixed Voices collage, I added a lace scarf.

Great New Idea for ATC Collectors

August 6, 2008

Our Systematic Success makes a great ATC holder!!!



For this one we made a single card on black background using four ATC’s to adorn our window. Inside we simply added inserts in which to display ATCs! Great for keeping your cards organized, showing them off and making trading easy.
