Cute As A Button Cards

Here is one of the Cute As A Button Cards that I have created. They are thus named because I embellished them with at least one or more buttons.

Using Buttons As Embellishments

Buttons can be found at home in your sewing box and are easily available for purchase at the store. Now with the trendy use of cute decorative buttons in card making as well as scrapbooking, craft shops also carry these sweet little buttons in bright and candy colours in all shapes and theme.

Nowadays, we see buttons glued onto paper and card-stocks, on tin can as a decorative decor as well as cushions not as a fastener but as a design statement. I am sure there are lots of other uses creative people have used these practical sewing supply for their creative works and endeavours.

So, let us go search in our sewing box or sewing machine drawers and find some buttons to use on our handmade greeting cards for a change. 

What I did below is just to print a meaningful quote and sewn buttons to kind of frame the quote. Buttons used are practical and non decorative kind which are readily found in my home.
