Button Inspiration




I found some ideas using buttons as decorations on tea towels and framed embroidery and it gave me the inspiration to create some new cards.  They are fun and easy to make and I like the whimsy of the buttons in the design!  I love the Wizard of Oz so The Somewhere over the rainbow ones were so much fun to make! My son is graduating this year so I made 15 of these - I hope all the graduates Dare to Dream and their Dreams really do come True!

I traced a round glass that was the right size for the front of the card and used it as a guide to attaching the buttons.  I already had lots of buttons since they seemed like a good craft resource.

For the fruit cards you can make any kind of fruit - oranges, lemons, limes, apples, even a bunch of grapes!  A great thank you card for someone special.
