Spring Button Flowers

Spread some cheer through the mail with these pretty Spring Button Flowers notecards kids craft.

Happy first day of spring! I've got a few craft projects coming your way to celebrate spring starting with these Spring Button Flowers note cards. I'm sure you know someone (or a few someones) that would love to receive this little bit of spring in their mailbox.

We're ready for spring at the Creative Family household, unfortunately our yard is still covered with many inches of snow and it's bitterly cold outside. Longest. Winter. Ever. Sigh...

Anyway, let's craft, shall we! It may not look like spring outside, but at least we can make it look that way inside with this Spring Button Flowers kids craft.

Supplies Needed:
Fabric scraps
Card stock cut to your desired note card size
Scissors (sharp enough to cut fabric)


I raided my fabric stash for some brightly colored scraps of fabric. This was one time that my pack rat tendencies actually came in handy. I found a fun array of fabric scraps. We used the scraps as the base of our flowers. We cut circles, triangles, or whatever shape my girls' little hands could handle. You'll want to supervise this part because we were unable to use our child safety scissors for cutting fabric, you'll need a sharper pair. After cutting our shapes, we chose a button for the center. We laid out all of our flowers before gluing them down, so we could make sure it looked the way we wanted it too.


We used the green construction paper for our grass, sometimes tearing and sometimes cutting. We either drew our stems and leaves with a green marker or used construction paper strips. Both look great. After we had everything the way we wanted it, we glued each piece down. You can use regular school glue for this part.


Despite all the snow outside, we spent a very pleasant afternoon making spring flowers. They all turned out wonderful and I think we may send these out for Easter. Sounds like a plan, doesn't it?
