Simple notecard with buttons

I stole some cute buttons from my mom's stash and repurposed them here. If you want to make this easy notecard, download the PDF template and print it out. (Each sheet makes two cards.) Cut the sheet in half and fold the two cards. Attach some colorful buttons with hot glue and round the card's corners if you want. This could make a quick and easy Valentine, especially if you use red and pink buttons.

Oh! Have you heard of glue dots (http://www.croppinparadise.com/adhesives-glue-dots-c-21_65.html)? They work wonderfully for attaching buttons and then you don't have to mess with hot glue.

i just have a small question for you... how do you round the corners? do you need ne of those fancy scrapbooking tools?

I have a punch, but a scissors works just as well. Just go a little slower.

Thanks for the inspiration!

LOVE these. Made 2 in a snap. Would love a template suitable for Christmas - perhaps a tree outline with tiny red buttons for decorations? Hint hint.

Love this card! Thanks for the idea...

Laura said...

Lovely idea, I tried it this year. I couldn't print the template, though (troubles with the printer) so I drew the stalks of the flowers with markers and hole-punched the leaves from self-adhesive paper. They turned out great. Here they are: http://laurafrunza.com/2012/02/27/activitati-creative-de-primavara-pentru-copii-mai-mici/
