Faux-vintage Button Cards

Button, button, who’s got the button? (Yes I am old enough to have actually played that game.) I’ve been collecting buttons for years. More than a few old button tins have found their way into my hands, and I’ve always enjoyed sorting through them and looking for treasures, and buttons that match. Rarely, I will find vintage buttons the way they were sold – sewn or wired onto a card. Eventually, I wondered…maybe some of my best button finds would be best displayed on cards.

I started off by looking for actual button card images on Pinterest – there are loads. However, I soon started thinking about drawing my own cards, so I could create special backs that really showed off the buttons.

I found these bluebird button cards on Pinterest – laser-printed to cardstock, they provided instant gratification!
Vintage buttons, sorted from the button box and re-carded. In my 50s and still playing with the button tin.
