Button Monogram

Many friends have expressed interest in a Button Monogram I did for my daughter’s room. It is a fun and easy craft, older kids would even enjoy making their own. I hope you like this as much as my daughter and I do.

Supplies:

– 12×12 scrapbooking paper (We used a card stock weight with heavy glitter)

– Button of choice

– Sticky tack glue/crafting glue

– Letter template (can be made from computer font)

– 12×12 Shadow Box (Got it from Micheals pretty cheap)

Directions:

Step One: Cut out letter template and glue to scrapbooking paper.

Step Two: Start glueing buttons on making sure to over lap your template so it does not show. The buttons will need to be layered in order to fill in the template. We have three layers of buttons. Dont be afraid to use a lot of glue, it will dry clear and you want your buttons to stay on (Note: Use different size buttons to give dimension).

Step Three: Once glued, let it sit for 24 hours to dry. Once dry, stand up and make sure all buttons are secure.

Finishing Tough: Put into shadow box style frame.

I told you it was simple and pretty easy. I have had so many compliments on this piece we did. Enjoy and happy crafting!!
