Simply grab a card blank, a selection of buttons and a your favourite fine liner and you’ll be away!

- With the card blank in a landscape orientation, use a pencil to faintly draw out flower stems coming up from the bottom of the card. Mix and match buttons to each of the stems.
2. Once happy with the composition, secure each of the buttons in place with cream sewing thread. Secure the thread on the inside of the card with a small strip of tape.
3. Cover the inside front of the card with a sheet of white cardstock measuring 16.5 x 11.5cm using double-sided tape, to cover the stitching.
