I use buttons for crafting all the time...
Like here for styrofoam button Easter eggs.
Or here at Christmas for grubby (work shirt type) button trees.
Or here as framed button trees and a snowman.
I also use buttons in jars as decor all the time.
Here, in a sewing vignette.
And here in a Valentine's Day mantel.
Sometimes I stick jars of buttons in a suitcase vignette.
I also used red buttons in a heart pan mosaic.
Back to the bingo button cards...
I found Bingo cards like these from the Decadence Emporium on Etsy. Ten for eight dollars.
I found thin wood rectangles almost the size of the bingo cards at Michael's. I stained them with walnut stain and brushed them with water based matte poly.
I sewed buttons on each card.
I brushed on Mod Podge with a foam brush.
Then glued them on each wooden rectangle. Here is my white button card.
Blue Button card.
Grubby button card.
More Hodgepodge. I think I like hodepodge best.
Vertical Bingo card.
Red blackout bingo.
Green Blackout Bingo.
More hodgepodge with assorted buttons.
Colored assorted card.
Then I picked up a rusty little lag screw drawer.
Cool, rusty, but a little too orange.
So I sanded the orange paint a lot. Then brushed on some water based poly. Much better!
I think my bingo button cards are pretty fun in the lag screw drawer.
Or in a wire basket too.
I love BUTTONS! Do you?
