Free Digital Embellishments – Vintage Paper Craft Buttons


Do you love paper crafted items and vintage ephemera?  I love the paper crafted embellishments that so many creative gals (and guys) come up with and of course, there is a gallery of ideas you can access on Pinterest.  I lose time quickly on Pinterest looking at all the paper crafting pins.

If you have visited this blog before you will know that, I really like paper crafts with a vintage or retro theme and when a crafter combines sewing with paper crafting…well, that just about does it for me.  So I almost flipped when I saw these beauties in the following pin on Pinterest.  They were posted on a French website, where I believe the crafter had made them herself, including the packaging.

I liked both the vintage button card, the color theme and the actual embellishments.  So, my creative juices started flowing and I thought I just had to come up with a similar digital version of my own.


Voila!, this is the first of my digital embellishments on a vintage style button card. I used patterned digital paper, scanned vintage ephemera images, images of vintage buttons and a couple of other elements.   I got so excited that I went beyond creating the embellishments and created the packaging as well!  It was just a lot of fun working on this mini project.

layered-flwr-ellie2-VGSNote About TOU:

As usual these are free for personal use, (check my TOU if you haven’t previously.) If you have been here before, you know the drill.  If not, you might want to read the quick TOU before you access the printable.

Some things you should know before downloading:

*Vintage Glam Collectibles or Vintage Glam Studio digital resources are for PERSONAL USE ONLY.
*You may not re-sell, redistribute, or claim them as your own.
*Please do not remove the watermark or modify the design in any way.

*Copyright remains with Vintage Glam Studio – Dru Cortez
*If you post this on the internet, please give credit to  Vintage Glam Collectibles & link back to my blog.

Details About the images:

*All images are made at 300 dpi so the digital files will usually be very large.  For example, these images are at 600 pixels by 600 pixels and would print out at 2” by 2”, if printing out is your goal, but they are designed as digital files for digital layouts.

*Most will be .png files (transparent backgrounds) so that you can layer them on to your scrapbooking backgrounds or photos.

*Most elements will not include a drop shadow, as I will leave that up to you to add one if you like.  They are included only in the preview images.

*I will be providing these elements with the assumption that you know how to use either Photoshop Elements, the open source photo editing program GIMP, Photoshop, or other photo editing software.  While I would like to offer support for these digital files, this is currently just a hobby and not my full time business.

*Most of my elements will be made from purchased commercial use or public domain resources, however if any designer feels their copyright has been infringed upon the freebie will promptly be removed and the freebie will no longer be available.  (I try to be scrupulous about what resources I use, but I may miss some.)
