Paper Playtime Ch# 62 - Christmas with Buttons

Ho ho ho!  It is almost Christmas!  Thank you so much everyone, for coming by and visiting the Here We Come A Caroling  blog hop sponsored by The Scrapbooking Queen.  A special shout out to my crafty friends who participated with me.  I just loved all of your projects!

Paper Playtime's Challenge #62 is a Christmas theme using buttons.  You can  make any project as long as it contains buttons!  I have seen some amazing projects some of our scrap sisters have made with buttons.  Altered frames, Christmas tree ornaments, wall hangings, banners, door wreaths, and shaped Christmas tree decor with nothing but buttons!  How cool is that?

I chose to make a card.  I love sending Christmas cards and plan to make 75 cards.  I have made 25 so far so I better get busy!

I recently discovered the Cricut Celebrate with Flourish in my Cricut Library and cut this tree out at 4 inches.  It is very narrow so I found the perfect background paper from the Recollections Sugar and Spice Christmas paper stack.  Striped ribbon, two buttons, and voila!  Quick card!

The sentiment is from the Home For Christmas stamp set from Cardztv Stamps.  This stamp set is my favorite "go to" stamp set for Christmas.  You can see all of Mary's stamp sets at her blog store Cardz TV Stamps.  

I cannot wait to see your project for our challenge!  


  1. Love this fun card! Great post too. :)

  2. This card reminds me of beautifully decorated cookies at Christmas time. We make these shapes and covere with lits of icing and sprinkles, pearls, littel candies to accent. A yummy card to me! :-)

  3. What a cute card Lynn, I love it. That little snowman is too cute and love the tree.
