Button Initials

Remember the white buttons and pink paper from last post?  I used them to make a button initial for friends who are having their baby girl's naming day ceremony soon.

I arranged the buttons and then stuck them down with clear glue onto heavy scrapbooking paper before whacking the lot into a frame.  The button-sticking part was completely painful but the end result was worth it.  I don't have a photo, but I also printed out a card with the event, the baby's name and the date which I mounted onto matching patterned paper and stuck onto the back.  Some of the buttons are newish ones of mine but most are from the big stash of old buttons from the button drawers that used to belong to my hubby's grandma. 

There are some lovely button letters out there in internet-land.  Inspiration from here, here and here.


  1. Gorgeous! I have been checking these out on pinterest and I love them. Great gift idea.

  2. a very pretty personalised gift, thanks for the links.

  3. What a great idea! We have a new grandson and I have been thinking about wooden initials for his room, but the button project would be great too. Thanks for sharing.
