Button Card Project

Posted on


Here's an idea for a cute homemade card featuring buttons.

I've used the same size button but in different colours and paper raffia to finish it off.




You could use different sizes of buttons or buttons all the same colour.

Place the buttons on the front of the card and move about until you are happy with the arrangement then glue into place.

I've used thin paper raffia for the 'string' part and have probably worked backwards here - I made two tiny holes in the bottom right of the card and threaded a small piece of the raffia through from the back, then I cut one piece of raffia for each button and tied it together with the small piece.

I then worked one piece at a time and glued the raffia to the card working up to the edge of the button leaving the bottom part after the bow unglued.




I used one A5 card, nine 15mm resin buttons, coloured 3mm paper raffia and Anita Tacky Glue

A selection of colourful resin buttons are available here

Happy card making!
