DIY Stationery - Wooden Button and String

A new week, a new craft. Or 2. We’ll see. I’m a bit obsessed with button and string envelopes. Single or double. I’ll take them all. Today I wanted try a little natural texture like wood and hemp cord. Add some gorgeous free patterns from Angie and gold brads? Oh yes. We’ve got the makings for lovely diy stationery. This is a versatile project. You can use any pattern or graphic that’s in your stash given the season or occasion you are sending your packages. Shall we?


The What

The How

  1. Open Silhouette Studio and load your patterns
  2. Create rectangles on your page and fill them with your patterns
  3. Print your patterns onto tattoo paper
  4. Apply the clear adhesive sheet. Use your scraper to smooth the bubbles out
  5. Trace the wood circles on the underside of the tattoo paper and cut
  6. Remove the clear adhesive paper, and apply the tattoo to a wood circle
  7. Punch a hole in the middle, and attach your wood circle to your envelope using a brad
  8. Wrap your string around your newly made button
