Acrylic look for Dies

Tammy Cunliffe

Posted on August 20 2016

Does this look like a real acrylic button to you?  It does to me!  But its a die cut from design paper!!  Tammy Louise here to share this fun technique with you!   I need a bookmark for my new journaling bible and I want to be able to switch out the verse inside to correspond with my lessons so I found these cute bookmarks that have a little sleeve attached for my message of the week!  Perfect!! 
I started with adhering some double sided adhesive sheet to the same design paper as used on the book mark, (the best part of this technique), rubbed in some glitter after cutting the die and removing the paper from the button top revealing the sticky part and dp beneath it and then rounded the edges with a stencil ball tool to create a beveled look.  Then the part that really makes it look acrylic is when I covered in a thick layer of glossy accents!  I ADORE this embellishment idea and LDRS creative has a diverse line of Creative Basic dies that when glittered and glossed up, become exquisite embellishments that will match PERFECTLY to your project!
In addition, If you learn easier from video tutorials, I'll show you how I accomplished the process at the LDRS YOU TUBE CHANNEL soon, so stop by and check it out!
