25 Crafts of Christmas – Day 22

I got a bit behind, didn’t I?  But I do have lots of blogs to write up.  I’ll begin with buttons.  I like buttons.  I collect them.  I have a lot of buttons.

I’ve made some button cards before…

But I am always finding ideas for new ones.  Here are some Christmas ideas I’ve collected.

And so for Day 22, I got my big box of buttons out.

Step 1: remove cat from big box of buttons.


Step 2: acquire blank cards.


Step 3: glue a red nose for a Rudolph.


Step 4: glue buttons for a Christmas tree.


Step 5: extract hair from artwork.


Step 6: glue several red buttons for robins.


Step 7: wait for pieces to dry fully and for the glue to go clear.


Step 8: practice the drawing of the robins.


Step 9: draw the robins on the card.


Step 10: draw the rest of Rudolph.


Step 11: admire your handiwork 🙂
