Button Initial

You know what is awesome? Completing TWO pins on Pinterest in the last two weeks! Holla!!


This time it was Meg who pushed me to get this one done. She said "Hey, let's get together and do those cool button initials. I'll teach you how to cut vinyl with your Silhouette."

Sold. Plus my massive button collection is always looking to get dipped into.

I'm pretty sure she pinned something different, but I pinned {this one} on my {Crafty things I need to do} board a little while ago. Oh if I had a dollar for everything I pinned on there....I'd have $72. Not bad, anyone hiring?

I think it really perks up my crafting nook! It took a full week and a half to tear apart my nook, reorganize every bit of crafting crap I own, and then put it all in this fancy new IKEA shelf that I blew all my Christmas money on. Ahh. I love my new organized space.

A quick how to:

  • Get an empty 8x10, glassless frame. Cut out cute scrapbook paper to fit. 
  • Cut out a vinyl letter and stick it on the paper. If you don't have a craft cutter, just cut one out of cardstock and trace it onto your paper. 
  • Bust out the buttons and hot glue gun and glue, glue, glue! We did two layers of buttons so it would look really cohesive.
  • Let dry. Frame. Done. 

Sorry about the weird angles of all the pictures, there's kind of a pillar in the way.

I just love your initial. Now I feel like I need a stash of buttons. I will keep my eyes open for some at yard sales. I am a new Twitter follower visiting from Flamingo Toes. Vicky from Mess For Less

I've seen these around too--but I have a question:

Where are people getting these buttons that all match?? I have buttons from estate sales, gobs from other places, but they are mostly ugly brown fake tortoiseshell buttons. I checked at Wal-mart, and packs of same-color buttons can be very expensive!

Even doing some casual "stash-busting" of old clothes has yet to result these pretty bright buttons.

I love monograms, and I too have several "pinned"--it's the lack of buttons that confuses me.

Oh wow! I wondered how they did that and pinned the same K framed pic thinking it would be so cute to do something like this for the nursery! Thanks so much for the awesome tutorial. So am gonna break out the glue gun this week!

I'd love it if you'd link this up on my Tuesday Destination: Inspiration party at Teagan's Travels!
