Recently, in my latest layout title "Adventurous" in my family gallery, I've stitched my buttons to create a unique embellishment. This is an idea inspired by a challenge that I'm in.
Actually I've created the buttons from scratch out of chipboard and some pattern papers. You can use any kind of premade buttons to do this. Later I've used a red thread to stitch the buttons onto the layout using a unique stitch design.
Try this idea in your next layout to create more unique embellishments.
