Digital DIY Wednesday Video Tutorial: How to Make a Blog Button

I have  had a few questions as to how to create a blog button since I posted the "How to Arrange Your Blog Buttons" post.  I thought a video tutorial would be perfect for this!
I'm using GIMP editing program, which I love.  It's completely free and does many of the same actions as Photoshop.  It is perfect for creating and editing backgrounds, and buttons for your blog.  I have used it to create almost everything you see on my blog from my banner and background, to all of the buttons on the site.
If you have a large enough screen you can watch the video below, or you can make it full screen by visiting it directly on YouTube HERE.
(Please ignore the loud flapping sound in the beginning of the video.  My Great Dane, Mango, decided that she needed to clear out her ears right next to the computer as I started recording!)

Hope this helps!  Enjoy creating!

Thanks for the tutorial, I already have GIMP but got frustrated but you make it look so simple. I think I'm going to give it a try!
