Paper Buttons and Mini Cards

I pinned a wonderful YouTube button tutorial and couldn't wait to try my hand at making tiny paper buttons.  I thought it might be a time-waster--why not buy real buttons--
but I fell in love with the process and the idea and the look!  
I made a whole bunch out of two of the new Stampin Up In Colors:

So fun and colorful and perfect to wrap twine around on tiny envelopes!  I cut a whole bunch of little envelopes and decorated them with  punched flowers.
What a great way to use scraps!

I took a pre-made card and cut it into three smaller cards that would fit inside:

And voila! Adorable little cards that are like a tiny gift in themselves:

The dies, punches, stamps and ink are all from Stampin' Up.  
The paper is from K &Company.
