It's new issue Monday at Paper Issues and we have teamed up with a Flair for Buttons!  Hands down the best flair maker ever.  A Flair for buttons sent me a couple pieces and I mixed them with random swag bag mixtures.  I can't tell you the last time I used a piece of kraft cardstock.  I love the outcome!
