‘Button Up’ a Card!

Hello Crafty People!

I am still trying to use up my massive collection of embellishments, some of which I have had for several years!

Today, I am focusing on the decorative buttons you find at the fabric stores and on the craft aisles at many stores.

Many buttons are flat and easy to attach on a card, but some have the little sewing loop on the back. This adds bulk to a card, so I decided to snip it off!

Once the loop is snipped, the button can be attached to a card. There is still dimension from the flat button and it may require extra postage if the card is mailed. I usually tuck the card in an embossed folder, then put it in an envelope. This method helps protect the button from being damaged when it is processed through the mail.

I attached this little hedgehog button to this birthday card for a special little kid! It ties in with the little forest critters paper I’ve had in my stash for a few years. Creating this card was a wonderful way to use up items from my patterned paper and embellishment collections!

I hope this gives you some ideas on how to use buttons you may have stashed away! Buttons are always in a crafter’s collection!

Thank you for visiting my blog today! Enjoy your days of creating awesome cards and projects!
