Button Boutique #5

Hello, Lisa E. here! I have another addition of my DeNami Design Button Boutique feature to share with you today. June will be here before you know it bringing Father's Day along with it. Now normally your first thought for a masculine project wouldn't include a selection of pretty little buttons. But I think the use of buttons paired with some masculine DeNami stamps worked out pretty well.

NOT LISTED: paper bag, toothpick, Zots adhesive Dots, kraft ink, colored pencils

I've taken these splendid DeNami products and turned them into this sweet little project.

Isn't this fun! The men in my family love to fish. So the fishing chickie was a good jumping off point. Grant it they don't fish from a sail boat, but I thought it would be cuter than a fishing boat!
I folded my boat from a pattern found on line then added the teeny swiss dot stamp and blue stripes Washi tape to decorate it. I created my own pattern for the sail. It was cut out, inked on the edges, adorned with buttons (front & back) for the mast and stamped with a sentiment. My anchor was stamped, punched then added with foam tape to the boat. And finally two fishing chickies were added.

To transform this idea into a card I simply made a flat boat! 

I kept everything the same here in my design. To give the boat a more finished appearance, all of the edges were scored and turned under. I even gave the sails some dimension by carefully pulling the paper between my fingers to give it the curve. 

I think these turned out to be super Father's Day projects even with those pretty little buttons!

Head over to, my blog, My Paper Tales, and leave a comment for a chance to win a Thoughtful Greetings stamp set!

Thanks for stopping into my Button Boutique today!
