Button Christmas Card Holder

Look at our cute embroidered button cover Christmas card holder. It's so quick and easy to make using 3" wide grosgrain ribbon, clothes pins, cording, paper punches and embroidered Christmas button cover designs from

Supplies Needed:
  • 1 1/2"flat back covered buttons (Found Here)
  • 1 yard of 3" wide Kiwi grosgrain ribbon (Found Here
  • Holiday button cover embroidery designs (Found Here)
  • Very Vera paper clip printable graphics (Found Here)
  • 1 yard of cording (found in your local craft store)
  • Mod Podge Sparkle (found in your local craft store)
  • 30" dowel rod (found in your local craft store)
  • Turn down one long edge of the grosgrain ribbon 3/4" and sew a casing for the cording.
  • Add a second ribbon over top so it just covers the previous stitching line and sew down both long edges of the coordinating ribbon. Use a match or lighter to seal the short ends so they won't ravel.
  • Use a needle and thread to wrap the cording around one end of the dowel and add a dab of glue for security. Allow to dry completely. Place the dowel through the casing and repeat to attach  the cording to the other end.
  • Embroider holiday button cover designs on white 3" grosgrain ribbon and make into flat back buttons using the Button~Ups Fabric Button Cover Machine
  • Make cardstock scallop circles using paper punches.  Glue the button to the cardstock. 
  • Follow the directions on the Very Vera paper clip printable graphics (Found Here) to make the paper covered Mod Podge clothespins, substituting regular Mod Podge for the Sparkle Mod Podge. 
  • Clip the clothes pins to the ribbon to holder you Christmas cards and photos.
