3 Easy Button Birthday Cards DIY

Hello there! A controversial topic for some, but I love cards. I love giving and receiving cards, it’s like an extra message showing that you care. My favourite cards to give are personal ones, the kind you know the recipient will enjoy whether it’s a private joke, a hobby they love, or a card that reflects their personality. What is a better way to show you care than with a homemade card? Button Confetti Card

  2. Next glue down the circles in any formation you want.
