Buttons and Stitches Birthday Card {Find It and Make It Friday}

Every other Friday is "Find It and Make It" Friday where I make a craft from items I already have.

I recently made this card for my Mom's birthday from craft stuff I already had stored away:

Here's how I did it-

  • White cardstock
  • Blue damask paper
  • red polka dot paper
  • Happy Birthday Foam Sticker
  • six buttons of different colors
  • embroidery thread and needle
  • craft glue
How To:
  1. Cut White card stock to size you want card, so fold will be on top. fold.
  2. Cut blue damask paper slightly smaller then front of card. Adhere with glue stick.
  3. Cut two small rectangles of red paper and one of white card stock, so that they fit in a line across card. Glue all of them on top of blue damask paper.
  4. For the stiches, use 2-3 threads and poke holes with needle before threading.
  5. Sew holes of buttons and glue them on with craft glue.
Delightfully Using up My  Stuff,
