Button Card Tutorial

Day 26 of #useitupjuly and it’s a Button Card Tutorial. Wow, this month is flying by so fast! A few months ago I asked Norella, creative owner of Calico Collage if she had or could make some button cards. Today I’m sharing her digital images and how I put these together to make journal cards.

Supplies Used for the Button Card Tutorial

Button Card Tutorial

For this Button Card Tutorial, I decided that I would do my best to use some of the buttons and some pieces of cardstock that I had in my stash. This is the perfect project if you have a bunch of buttons and scraps.

Begin by cutting the digital images from the sheet. There are twelve images that measure just under 3 x 4. Cut twelve cards 3 x 4 out of cardstock.

Use the distressing tool on the edges of the image and the card. Then apply distress inks to the image and the card.

Adhere the image to the card with ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever using the No-Clog Writing Cap. Sew straight and zigzag stitches around the card alternating the stitches.

Cut a piece of cardstock into a tag shape. Or use a punch to create the tag. Apply distress inks to the edges. Add decorative stitches to one side.

Punch holes in the card. Holes for the buttons and a hole for the string on the tag. Sew buttons by hand with needle and thread.

Cut a length of crochet thread and lay it on the distress ink pad. Press the blending tool on top of the thread and pull the thread slowly to apply color. Repeat this process until the thread is the desired color. Attach the string to the card and tie a knot.

Use foam dots or squares on the back side of the new button tag and attach to the card base. To add interest apply the tag at an angle.
