Here's Comes Santa!
Aww, what a neat tutorial this week over at OWH! It's a close up of Santa's big belly! Since I'm low on anything that could pass for black buttons, I decided that Mrs. Santa is dressing him really really well this year, and gave him diamond buttons ;)
The bottoms button has a glare - it's the same jewel dot as the others. I also realized I don't have any black ribbon... let alone the great satiny kind :(. On the list it goes! ALSO, I had to create my own belt buckle (they spent all their money on those diamond buttons). I used a strip of sparkly (sealed!) silver from a sheet from DCWV Stripes, Plaids, and Dots stack, curved the corners freehand, and punched the holes with a Fishers rectangle punch. Now I'm having second thoughts about pairing up those buttons and that buckle... Hmmm. Any suggestions?
