Buttons on Buttons on Buttons! // Wreck This Journal 1

Wreck This JournalFollow me as I adventure through my copy of Wreck This Journal by Keri Smith.

Welcome to my first Wreck This Journal Post! I received this book for my birthday a few years ago and I’ve been struck with a sudden desire to start it. I’m going through and doing random pages whenever I’m feeling inspired or crafty, and this is the first one I’ve completed.


The instructions read: Fill this page with circles.

Wreck This JournalAt first I was going to just draw circles all over the page, but then I decided that I would try to do a little something different. Hence… BUTTONS!!


Wreck This JournalButtons are wonderful things. I covered the pages with sparkly silver duct tape first and then used my hot glue gun to cover it all with buttons. I’m really surprised at how the heart came out- I was really doubting whether or not you would be able to tell it’s actually a heart!

I’m really pleased with how this first set of pages came out, and I can’t wait to do more wrecking!

Have you ever worked on a Wreck This Journal? How would you have decorated this page? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. I’ve seen so many Wreck This Journal posts up (makes me want to buy one myself). Got to say that’s amazingly creative and the heart LOOKS GORGEOUS! I love how the different shades of colour on the white buttons adds to the whole thing. ❤


    1. Thanks so much!! 🙂 It’s a ton of fun to do and there are countless possibilities for each page. If you decide to get one, keep me posted on your progress! I’d love to see what you come up with!
