Guest designer at Crafty Creations - Make Your Own Button

I was super excited to be asked to be a part of Crafty Creations for a month and today is my first card for them!
We were asked to "Make your own button" which was something I'd never done before.
I wasn't sure whether I was doing it right but in the end I punched 4 circles of white card stock, glued them together in a pile, added a blue card stock circle on the top and used my Crop-O-Dile to make the holes. Then I added some red, white and blue ribbon through the holes and I think they turned out pretty good (if I do say so myself! LOL).
So now it's your turn to go and try the challenge!

CCEE - Sketch
Cute Card Thursday - Let's Get Fruity
