Button Craft


Did I make these, not hardly as I would have probably been a teenager at the time these were made. They are little note cards that measure 3x4. Constructed on regular card stock they have a button face with red painted mouth. the eyes and some other parts were drawn, using a gold ink for the dress. the hair is partially drawn but mostly they used real fur, a feather,and a small silk flower. So that's about it, got any buttons with big holes for eyes ? If I had to guess, I would say late forties or maybe early fifties, what do you think?
