Hi guys! I am back with another fun vintage craft to share with you. Today’s craft comes from a Summer 1953 issue of McCall’s Needlework and Crafts Magazine. I am going to share with you the instructions on how to make these cute little vintage button greeting cards/ stationary cards.
Here is the original how to:
These cards were super easy to make! I made the cherries like in the magazine. For the flower card, I drew a flower shape on the back side of some pink felt and then added the button to the center. I also made some grapes, and an ice cream cone. I cut the shanks off of the buttons with a pair of flush nippers.
You can really get creative on the shapes and subjects you use, and it is a lot of fun! It is a really fast craft to whip up too! I think it would be an excellent project for kids to make or for a group or party. I hope you all will give it a try sometime! I’ll be back soon with more vintage crafts. Until then…
