In the event you were unaware, I LOVE giving presents. And as weird as it is, I LOVE wrapping presents even more! I'm probably sick and disturbed... :) Anyway! Making cards and wrapping presents, then giving them away is something that brings me joy, so prepare yourself for a birthday and button themed mini post!
I decided that I wanted to make a fun card without stamping it, so I opted for buttons! I laid them out and then rearranged them over and over in order to get a layout and variety! When it came to color choice I picked buttons that would match the wrapping paper I was planning on using.
Creating the card was so simple, just gluing the buttons into place, and letting them dry. Once they were secured I used a black pen to draw my strings and bow.
As I said before, I wanted the buttons to match the wrapping. If you knew who the gift was going to, you'd realize that plaid wrapping paper is only the most appropriate choice! Plus I just personally think plaid is neat! I considered using black grosgrain ribbon, but of course, couldn't find any at the time... Isn't that just how life is?! In its place I opted for a couple wraps of baker's twine in red and white to match the color scheme. Add one envelope and this present was wrapped for success! And it was very successful indeed!
