Vintage Crafts- Button Cards

6-6 5-5

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:

8-Untitled-2 9-Untitled-1 7-Untitled-3

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.

4-4 1-1 2-2 3-3

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…

Happy Crafting!
