How To Make a Button Flower Art

Step 1: Layer your flowers

Start off by folding a 8x 11 inch piece of card stock in half and cut.

Now let’s layer those buttons to create our button flowers. Big buttons, small buttons, rainbow buttons – the choice is yours! Layer them up like stacking pancakes until you’ve got a beautiful button blossom. You can decide to do only two layers or all three!

Add a yellow sun in the corner of your paper made from buttons if desired.

Step 2: Add some leafy stems and leaves

Next, let’s draw some green stems for our flowers. Go ahead and add some swirly stems or maybe even some wiggly ones –no need for perfectly straight stems here!

Add a small heart shaped leaf cut from green card stock to your stems. Add a small green button on top.

Step 3: Add Grass

Lastly add your green grass to your meadow of flowers.
