Gold Embossed Buttons

I needed something to add to these Christmas Cards:I remembered that Keri told me you could emboss brads--I tried it on buttons and there you have it. Brown plastic buttons are now gold. Ah, if only I could do it with plastic coins!!! Thanks Keri.

Very cool, a friend of mine has worked out how to colour the brads with watercolour crayons - check out www.knightstamper.blogspot.com

Hi there Joan, I love the idea of embossing on the buttons! Well done! Hey, have you checked out our new page for the SBS? Our group moderator made one up for us and it just isn't as much fun without our Fair Paper Handmaiden!!! Come join the fun, they are doing swaps and challenges on there, very cool.
Hope to see you there friend,
Hugs, Leslie
