We have oh-so-many buttons in our store, in an incredible assortment of colors. We wanted to do something fun with them, so we grabbed a handful of brown, orange, and red buttons, and decided to create a lovely DIY fall card. We used the buttons to create the shape of a leaf, and we’re loving the turnout. This card would be perfect for any holiday event, or simply as a way to express your thanks. Check out all of our buttons online, and follow along below to make your own fall leaf card!
Supplies: cardstock (folded in half), craft glue, an assortment of fall-colored buttons, a pencil
1. Make sure your cardstock is folded into a card, in your desired size. Carefully draw the outline of a leaf onto the cardstock. You can do either it by freehand or use a stencil.
3. Gently erase most of the pencil so the leaf outline is just a faint line. Start gluing the buttons down individually so that they fill the outline of the leaf.
4. Keep gluing down the buttons until you’ve filled the entire leaf outline. Add some small buttons for the stem, then you’re all set. Write a message on the inside and share it with a loved one!
If you read our blog frequently, you’ll know that there’s nothing we love more than a good studded DIY. We think it’s appropriate to add studs to just about everything, and apparently Jenni of I Spy DIY agrees with us. Jenni picked up some round hotfix nailheads from our store, and used them to add some edge to a clutch, a keychain, and a pair of flats. Our favorite is the oversized clutch – wouldn’t it be perfect for a night out? Head over to I Spy DIY to see how Jenni created these cool studded items.
