Wednesday's Words of Wisdom

A grandparent 
will help you with your buttons,
your zippers, and your shoelaces
and not be in any hurry
for you to grow up.

~Erma Bombeck

Button gift enclosure card by Adele Bruno, CZT

Project particulars:
This is a small card designed to given with a gift.  
From my button box, I selected a round purple button with two holes.  
I traced it in the approximate center of the card and then tangled outward.  
Once the zendala was complete, I used a needle and thick cotton embroidery thread to sew the button to the paper and then finished it with a double knot. 

Here's a little trick:  Adding the scalloped edge and then doubling it is an easy way to give the illusion that the round design is centered.  I just adjusted the curves, stretching them to a somewhat equal distance from the edges of the card.  


  1. Lovely, original idea, thank you Adele!

  2. This is a great idea for making use of some of those pretty, leftover buttons in my button box - It would be fun to do for birthday cards - I'm looking forward to trying this!
