I tried thinking of a hostess gift to give to my sister for throwing Michael’s baby shower, so I stalked her Pinterest boards to see what she would like. I came across a framed button monogram and decided to make her a button Mickey.
Necessities: a frame, buttons, scrapbook paper, hot glue gun.
I cut the scrapbook paper to fit the frame then traced kitchen cups to make perfect circles for Mickey’s face and ears. After gluing a few buttons on I nearly gave up. It looked terrible with the glue coming through the button holes and the strings from the glue were hard to deal with.
But I stuck with it and at the end, wiped away as many glue strings as possible. It turned out alright!
