I wanted to make some pretty button-themed treats for my book party this weekend, so I baked some button shortbread cookies and whipped up these fun button cupcake toppers, too. Here's how to make your own version any time you have something crafty to celebrate!
Take a break from the straight and narrow and free yourself up to make some mistakes. Today, try setting aside your scissors and focus, instead, on torn paper, soft edges, and coloring outside the lines.

I wouldn't hesitate to put extra care and attention into wrapping a present, so why should a cake be any different? Cutting a silhouette is not difficult. If you have paper, pencil, scissors (or X-Acto knife), and an interesting design, you’re more than halfway there. Simply draw out your design, and start cutting.
If you have a plain pair of shoes that need a little pick-me-up, how about adding a button rosette for a sweet and spring-y makeover? Choose two favorite buttons in coordinating colors for a super-personalized update.
