The paper buttons were cut from card stock with the Sizzix Buttons sizzlet. The narrow gross grain ribbon I bought at Michael's in the value bin. I made several color combinations. A couple were baby cards. The punched holes at the top and bottom were created with the tools in the other photo.
The red plastic canvas, a push pin and a thick computer mouse pad. I think is a great use of plastic canvas. Just stick to the same corner in each square and you have a line of evenly spaced holes. Give it a try.
