Birthday Girl Button Card


Here is the second of my birthday cards. For this one I wanted to make a card for a child that gave them a little something. The center of the flower is a button that can be removed from the card and worn on their birthday!

To make the button I printed a graphic from Lettering Delights Cupcake Flair Toppers set. I sized it to about 1.15" and printed them. I then used the i-Top punch for 28mm brads to cut out the graphic. I then used the i-Top with the button pieces to make the buttons for the cards.

To attach the button to the front of the card I had to get a little creative. The flower I chose for the card from the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge has a hole in the center of the flower.

I took a small piece of paper and added two little spots of glue on the back of the flower.

I then attached the strip of paper, making sure it had a slight bubble in the middle that would stick out of the middle of the flower.

Then I just attached my button to the strip and then adhered the flower to the card.

Inside is just a little spot to write a note, decorated with some stamps from Close to My Heart Good Times stamp set.
