Shabby button card gifts

Dear friend,

Don’t think of this card as a note…
Think of it as my arms around you…

…holding you tight!

And the buttons on the front are because I know how much you love adding buttons to your crafting supplies.

Hugs from me xx

Last week I shared my handmade button cards and free printable with you.

They were fun to make and I have a few projects underway using them.


Shabby Art Boutique - Button Cards 2


This first project was a simple one… attaching the button cards to greeting cards to send to my crafty friends.

Sometimes you just want to say ‘Hi’ or ‘thank you’.

In this age of technology, when everything is electronic, it’s nice to receive a card from a friend in the post… or discover a secret note left by a friend.

This one is like a book mark with pretty buttons sewn on.

It could be slipped into a card or gift or attached like a gift card.


I decorated the front of these cards with pretty scrapbooking paper from the Tilda Collection, then attached the button cards with foam dots, so the button cards can be removed later.

Alternatively, a sleeve could be made on the front of the card to slip the button card into.

  4. Those are adorable! I love getting cards but unfortualtely you are right, no one really sends things by the Post anymore. Maybe we can start a new, old trend!

      I’m glad some of us still use the old snail mail. I like to receive surprise letters and cards in the mail that you can actually hold and open, rather than electronic mail. 🙂
