The EASY How-To!
First things first – fold and your card trim down your cardstock paper that will go on the front. Secure those together. Repeat for each cactus button card you are making today.
Next – envision where you want your cactus to be. Start adding glue dots to the back of your green buttons and placing them on your cardstock piece, in a cactus/slightly cross formation. It may not look perfect at first but once you start adding the embellishments you will see it come to life!
Remember to also leave plenty of room on the cardstock to draw on your planter pot on the bottom, as well as the “embellishments” around the cactus.
To finish off the Button Cactus Cards – grab your Sharpies and draw on a planter pot, cactus spines and a few flowers on the cardstock.
Then write “stuck on you” on the bottom and get ready to gift away!
