Button Doodle Cards tutorial

Just a little tutorial for you lovely guys this week.  I have been making some little button doodle cards and thought I would share how.  

I used 3x3" card blanks as I had quite little buttons.  I started by sticking a couple of buttons onto my card front. I used glue dots but I have also sewn them in place before and that looks fab too! (I was just being impatient to get to the doodling bit today!) 


Next step ..... DOODLE!  (told you this was a little tutorial!)


I doodled my buttons into flowers.  I also did a few as birds which you may spot below.


Here are just a few of my afternoons creations!  You can see that some cards I only used 1 button and on others I used 3.  I tried to make all my flowers a little different. 

Well off for a quick dip at handmade harbour before an early night ready to get packing up my 'Crafty What Nots' boxes ready for posting!  Yeah!

    1. Thanks Honey xxTrying to adopt a bit of the old Zentangle! Am really pleased with them now! I kept trying to think of other things I could do like animals but decided not to run before I could crawl! So just stuck to flowers for the time being! xx

  10. They are so cute! I think I would have to doodle first then add the buttons because my drawing is pretty poor and I'd draw over the button! Your cards are so precise and pretty.

    1. I thought they may look good if they were stamped first too. Will have to experiment I think. xx
