Make it Monday #54 - Glitter Buttons

** Edited to add a photo of the 'cupcake' socks **
Over at Papertrey Ink the new Make it Monday challenge is to use glitter buttons on a project.  I am going to a baby shower this weekend, so I made an oven:

The oven mitt is made from the glove in the 'Loves Lives Here Holiday' set from Papertrey Ink (PTI).  The tea towel is made from 'Tiny Tags' die, also from PTI.  I found the images for the hot plates by doing a search for 'stove element'.  I have had them for a while, so I don't remember the exact site.  The sentiment was created on my computer (because I don't own Favor it - Baby by PTI).  I didn't come up with the oven idea, I was inspired by this one made By Lauren Meader here.
I didn't have any spray adhesive, so I used double sided tape to attach the glitter.  I just cut out small circles from the tape.
This is the glitter I used:
The underlying buttons are silver for the top knob, and pink for the rest, hence they look different shades of pink once I applied the glitter.  I am going to put some baby socks in the oven, wrapped in muffin liner to look like a cake.

Here is what the 'cupcake' socks look like:

Dies: Love Lives Here Holiday, Tiny Tags - Papertrey Ink
Punch: 1 in square - EK Success (punched twice to make a rectangle)
Others: Acetate, Kraft card stock, ScorPal, Buttons, Glitter
