    On the original tutorial she sewed around the edges to prevent fraying and make them more stable; I painted around the edges with glitter paint instead because I love glittery stuff.

    On my project I chose to use a button instead of beads. I painted around the edge of the button with the glitter fabric paint and allowed it to dry.

    To cover up the back, I used a milk cap (actually it is off of Raspberry Tea, but it is the 1 1/2 inch that is called for in the tutorial) and set it in the felt scrap and cut around the cap with the scissors (you could draw on the wrong side of the felt if instead).
