Make button invitations
These cute as a button invitations are great for a rainy day of crafting or as a cute invitation to your child's very own craft party.
What you need:
- coloured cardboard
- brown paper
- pinking shears
- needle and thread or a sewing machine
- real or paper buttons
- coloured envelopes
Number of players:
Cut out pieces of cardboard, making sure that they will fit nicely into your envelopes.
Then cut out a smaller piece of brown paper using pinking shears. Keep it rough so that it has a nice homemade feel.
Sew the brown paper to the cardboard; it looks great if you sew the paper at an angle to the cardboard.
Then glue on some buttons in assorted colours and then they're ready to put into envelopes.
