{ Do It Yourself } Button Bouquet Mother’s Day Card

20140317_160739
With Mother’s Day just around the corner (it’s on March 30th for those who don’t know!), I wanted to share with you a simple DIY for a cute handmade Mother’s Day card. While it might be easy to buy a card from the nearest Clinton’s, nothing shows how much you care more than something handmade, so why not roll up your sleeves and get stuck in – it doesn’t take long, trust me!

For this flower bouquet card you will need…

  • 1 sheet of A4 card
  • Assorted buttons
  • Ribbon
  • Marker pens
  • Glue gun or superglue

First, fold you card in half, to create a typical greetings card template.

Next, choose your buttons! You can either go for assorted sizes and colours like I did, or you can stick to one colour, or one size, or both!

Have a play around with how you want to position your buttons and get sticking! Don’t worry if you haven’t got a glue gun (though I would recommend one to any crafter!) super glue will do just fine!

Once you have all of your buttons arranged, take some complimentary ribbon and make your bow. Glue it in place, and finish off by adding stems with a green marker pen.

You can leave your card like this, or decorate further. I added ‘Mum…’ to get the Mother’s Day theme onto the front of the card, but you could add as much or as little as you like!

So there you have it! A simple yet thoughtful idea to remind Mum just how special she is. And don’t forget to write a nice message inside!
