Supplies Needed for Button Art Cards
Here’s what you will need to make the cards:
- Colorful Card Stock
- Glue – we recommend this kind for gluing buttons since it’s a much stronger nontoxic white glue
- Green Foam
Directions to Make Button Art Flower Cards
1. Begin by folding an 8.5 X 11 piece of card stock in half.
2. Cut some small strips of green foam and glue it to the card stock.
3. Glue some large buttons above the green stems, leaving a little bit of space for the petals. You can use white glue to glue the buttons down. Just allow time for them to dry.
TIP: We highly recommend this glue as it’s stronger and better for gluing buttons.
4. Glue smaller buttons around the large centers for the petals.
5. Glue green buttons next to the foam strips for leaves.
And your card is finished! Allow the glue to fully dry before giving it to that special mom or grandma in your life!
