Cute as a Button Card Tutorial

Use my free printable template to create these cute and easy button cards!
Give all your friends these cute and easy handmade button cards!  The unique doodle design that I created complements the simple button decorations.  Say anything from "happy birthday" to "thank you" to "congratulations" when giving these away.  If you want, you can also keep these for yourself.  Use them to adorn your room by framing them as art or find another creative use—the options are endless.

What You'll Need:

Click to Print
  • Free printable Button Card Template
  • Card stock (or any thick paper)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Ruler
  • Buttons (3-8 depending on card)
  • Colored pencils or markers
Step One:  Click and print my free Button Card Template.  Using scissors, cut along the outside edges of desired card.

Step Two: With pencils or markers, color in the picture.

Step Three:  Measure out a piece of card stock or any thick paper to 10 x 5 inches with the ruler and cut out with scissors.

Step Four:  Fold the piece of paper in half and crease.

Step Five:  Glue the template cut-out onto the top face of the paper.

Glue Buttons
