Great British Button Challenge: Sew a Sunshine Card
Add a little sunshine to someone’s day with this cute-as-a-button notelet; perfect for using up the odd button or three that you might have lying around your craft space.
If you didn’t want to create a sun as the centre point of your card, there’s lots of other designs that can be created with just one button, why not create a collection of balloons and use embroidery thread to stitch the tails, or perhaps a flower head, using a button to create the centre of the flower and then stitching the petals.
- Take a sheet of turquoise cardstock and use a paper trimmer to cut to 9.5cm square. Use a glue stick to secure centrally to a white 4 x 4″ card blank.
2. Trim a sheet of white cardstock to 8.5cm square; lightly mark the centre with a pencil. Place your yellow button of choice centrally over the top of the pencil mark and stitch into place using yellow embroidery thread.
3. Once secure add sunburst rays coming from the button.
4. Secure the completed panel centrally to the turquoise layer using foam pads.
