Button Craft: Valentines Card

| February 8, 2012 | 11 Comments

This is a really quick and easy button craft, for a Valentines card. I initially got the inspiration from two sites Bond with Karla & Wedding Thrift. Both have some really fab crafts on them.

You need: 

  • A plain card
  • Selection of buttons
  • Coloured or patterned paper
  • Black pen
  • Scissors
  • Double-sided sticky tape

You simply cut a heart shape from the coloured paper. I used a template, as I wanted to make a few of the cards all at once.

I then stuck down the patterned paper with double-sided sticky tape.

I then worked out where I would put the buttons.

And stuck them down, again with double-sided sticky tape.

For the back of the card, a very small heart on the back.

Here is one of the cards I made on display.

It takes a max of 5-10 minutes per card, and the perfect craft for a button addict like me.

      Yes, commentluv is genius!

      Thank you, I’m starting to run out of buttons, not seen any good ones for ages!!

  6. Super cute, you’ve got to love a button, if you don’t then quite frankly there’s something medically wrong with you. Great make although now I’m thinking about the phrase ‘love button’ which is all kinds of wrong! x
