Create an Antique Chic Cameo Button Envelope and Card

Create an Antique Chic Cameo Button Envelope and Card with a few easy steps.  Its just so simple that with a few easy supplies you can create an envelope that will wow anyone.
I'm  Design Team member for Buttons Galore & More, and part of my DT package I got some awesome cameo buttons that are just gorgeous.
There is so much you can create with Cameo Buttons.   When, you think of buttons you immediately think about things like shirts or some type of sewing project, but the truth is that you can  create anything with buttons.  Honestly, the sky is the limit when it comes to buttons. The project that I created for you today is an envelope and card using Cameo Buttons as closures.  Buttons Galore & More made this project super fun for me, because the Cameo Buttons and  Haberdashery Buttons were gorgeous and I found the perfect paper to go with it from We R Memory Keepers “Antique Chic”.  This paper collection went very well with the Cameo Buttons!  To create this project it was super fun and super easy.
