1 blank greetings card
1 rectangle of woven fabric
strong clear glue

Print out the message "cute as a" several times in different fonts. Choose the one you think will fit the card best and carefully tear it off.

Trim the ends.
Cut a rectangle or square of fabric bigger than the message.
Apply a generous amount of strong clear all purpose glue to the back of the button and also to the back of the message.
Stick them in place on top of the fabric.
Fray the edges of the fabric.
Apply glue to the reverse of the fabric in the centre.
Position it on the card.
Cut 4 lengths of embroidery floss to fit around the edges of the card.
Tie them together and glue in place.
Print out a message for the inside (or use a ready made message) and glue it in place.
