Happy Spring Button Greeting Card

I love Spring and I love Buttons!   I created this adorable Happy Spring greeting card using Laura Kelly’s Buttons and Lady Bug Buttons from Buttons Galore & More!
Materials used:
Laura Kelly Buttons from Buttons Galore & More
Lady Bug Buttons from Buttons Galore & More
Card stock from Core-dination from Darice
Card/Envelope from Core-dination from Darice
Fabric Tag
Tulip Fabric Markers from ILoveToCreate
Hot glue gun and hot glue
Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue
Aleene’s Paper Glaze
I started by making paper rosette flowers.   I cut 3/4″ and 1/2″ paper strips with cute card stock.  Bending the paper back and forth, I created a zigzag strip.   Once I had them all folded, I used a hot glut gun to glue the strips to each other, connecting two strips together on each end.  Once they were connected and formed a circle, I positioned the sides together to form the rosette and hot glued the center and let it dry. rosettes
I cut my stems and leaves from a green striped card stock and glued them to a card using my Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue.  I added buttons to the paper rosette flowers!  I used green buttons for the grass!
Buttons Galore & More has adorable little lady bug buttons, so I attached them to my card using Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue.  I added them to the paper rosette flowers, the stem and the grass! ladybugs
Using a fabric tag and Tulip Fabric Markers, I wrote Happy Spring and added lines and dots!  I applied it to the card using Aleene’s Paper Glaze and added a little ladybug to cover the hole on the tag. tulip fabric markers
I love this adorable little Happy Spring card and someone special will be receiving it soon! Final

Teacher Appreciation Gift – Stenciled Monogram Burlap Basket

Teacher Appreciation Week is right around the corner.  We all appreciate the hard work, love and dedication that our teachers put into our children’s education.  Do you need a quick, easy and cute teacher appreciation gift?  This stenciled monogram burlap basket was super simple and quick.

Burlap basket (I found mine in the Target $3 section and it’s nice and sturdy)
Tulip Fabric Paint
Sizzix Eclips2
Contact Paper


1.  Measure your basket, so that you know how big your letter (and name) can be.

2.  Using the electronic cutting machine software, I chose a font for the letter and name.  In this case, I used the Sure Cuts A Lot software.  And I chose the Bell Font.

3.  Using the Sizzix Eclips2, mat and my contact paper (placed on the mat face up), I cut out the letter and name.

4.  I didn’t want to use the actual letter cutouts, so I pulled up the outlined piece of contact paper and placed it on my burlap basket making sure it was centered.

5.  Using the Tulip Fabric Paint, I colored in the letters like a stencil.

6.  Once I was done with the fabric paint, I pulled up the contact paper stencil and then let it dry!

I think it turned out great!  And I know that my son’s teacher will love it!  Plus, I filled it with goodies for her!
