Here's how to create a Cupcake Gift Tag with Buttons:
To begin the Button Art for Children Cupcake Gift Tag, gather all supplies. Lightly sand the edges of the wooden shape, if necessary. I love using the bright, colorful, and gorgeously detailed buttons from Button-Jam. They are high quality and come in super cute jam jar packaging.
Basecoat the bottom half, sides, and back of the wooden cupcake shape with Desert Turquoise. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. Using a paintbrush, basecoat the top half, side, and back of the wooden cupcake shape with Titanium White. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. I love Americana Acrylics by DecoArt because they very rarely need a second coat.
Starting with the largest Blue Button-Jam Buttons attach to the base of the wooden shape with E6000 Clear Adhesive. Add medium buttons and then fill in any remaining spaces with small buttons. E6000 Clear Adhesive provides a strong attachment for oddly shaped items like buttons creating a permanent bond than a glue gun.
Starting with the largest White Button-Jam Buttons attach to the top of the wooden cupcake shape with E6000 Clear Adhesive. Add medium buttons and then fill in any remaining spaces with small buttons. Glue a decorative Pink Button-Jam Button to the tippy top of the cupcake. An easy way to work with small items like buttons is to spread them out on a dessert size paper plate. Then when done, funnel them back into their original container.
To finish the Button Art for Children Gift Tag, measure and cut a 20″ length of ribbon. Glue the pink gingham ribbon to the top back of the cupcake. Then tie it onto a gift bag and finish with a bow. This 5/8″ wide gingham ribbon is always in stock at Dollar Tree and comes in a rainbow of colors. I pick up a spool or two near the silk flower display when I am at my Dollar Tree.
