Button Monogram

This is a really COLORFUL & creative way to display your child’s initial. Super easy for sewers & crafters who have lots of extra buttons laying around. Gosh I LOVE buttons…

– Scissors
– Cardstock (large enough to fit your frame)
– Pen or Pencil
– Adhesive, Scotch Tape Runner allows you to reposition buttons
– Paper Piercer
– Buttons and Brads
– Frame without glass or shadowbox (this one is from IKEA)

  1. Oh I am in LoVe! Damn I wish I had a girl right now!

    My mom made something similar with my great-grandmother's old buttons buy instead she covered a picture frame and then put a neat b/w photo in it to give to my grandma. Love buttons!

  2. I love this idea! So cute. I am teaching a class of little girls some arts and crafts and I think that will be a great idea for them to try. thanks!

  3. Love the idea. I have friends that little ones looking for things for them to do over the summer.

  4. adorable.

  5. Boys like buttons too!! We just did a sewing session with our homeschool co-op and the boys were the most enthusiastic (ages 5-15). The more “cool” buttons they could sew on their stuffed monsters the better. I think this would be beautiful in any baby’s room.

  6. This is just the most adorable idea. I love it, especially the variety between the buttons and brads. Thanks so much for the idea!
