These cute cards are made by punching flower shapes from security lined envelopes which I was able to find in my basket of mail. Recycling is always a good idea and with 27 days of creating to go, I figure the more projects I can do without buying a bunch of new supplies, the better!
Look at all these great patterns and colors. Yes, you say, but what about the buttons? True, I have purchased buttons from the craft store to embellish projects. In keeping with this idea, I came up with another resource.
You probably have buttons like these in a drawer or jewelry box. Perhaps buttons for an item of clothing that no longer lives in your closet. I don’t know if I’ve ever used these any buttons from these little packets, but I saved them!
You can see where I got this idea here at Mel’s Designs. She embellished her cards with sewing machine stitching and some sparkly gems. Once you’ve assembled th flowers it is quick work to make a few greeting cards.
These cards make me happy. I’m looking forward to creating something new tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!
