handmade button cards







I have always been attracted to antique button cards. The images are usually so interesting.

I sewed some vintage buttons on these homemade cards edged in metallic. Great to use as buttons are intended and a bonus image for art or just use the whole card with buttons attached as part of a collage or mixed media creation.

I especially like the one with the yellow buttons and the pretty lady in the yellow hat!

Love your vintage button card idea! I love buttons, too, but I must stop collecting everything. My husband wonders when enough will be enough! Thanks for seeing my silverware "collection" in my farm table drawers!
