Punky Sprouts Button Love

Hey everyone it's my turn to share over at Punky Sprouts today.

If you follow my blog, you know that we just moved our daughters into the same room.  This has actually worked out pretty well.  They like being together, they've sorted out the whole sleeping at night thing, and we're working on naps.

I thought it would be fun to create some new pieces for their room, and decided to use the new Punky Sprouts buttons as the focal point.

Previously we had several Curious George prints up (helpful/cheap trick for those of you decorating a room - buy a book or calendar and just mount the photos on scrapbook paper and frame - so much cheaper than buying from somewhere), so I decided to replace two of them.

The great thing about this project was that I was able to reuse both the frame (withouth the glass) as well as the cardstock from the original Curious George prints, I just added an extra layer of white cardstock for definition.

The buttons are mounted on two of the pages from the Teenie Beanie album.  I first painted the edges with gesso and then covered them with white cardstock.

Then came the button placement.  After some experimenting, I decided to create two layers of buttons, little ones on the bottom and then the larger ones on top.  They are adhered with Liquid Glass.

I also added a little piece of cardstock with their names written in cursive. 

I love the way these turned out and the girls were pretty excited to have their letters displayed in their room. 

Thanks so much for coming by today!
