For my birthday I was given a frame, some buttons, and directions for the idea of making a sign for my quilt studio. We brainstormed for a good phrase to use and I set to work.
I had some flocked paper in rolls and selected a burgundy for my background. I found the easiets way to mark the lettering after I had printed it out in the size I wanted was to lay it over the flocked paper and pierce the outline of the letters. When the pattern was removed I had dotted lines to guide me.
I chose to use "Crafter's Pick : the Ultimate" glue as I knew it would adhere to both the buttons and the flocking. I drew of line of glue with a toothpick over the dotted line of a letter and then placed the buttons in random colors.
You can see that I did not try to line up the holes in the buttons, but allowed those to be random as well.
The words 'are' and 'the' are made up of some quilt-theme stickers that I already had on hand.
That's a further reinforcement of the theme of the sign.
This is going to look GREAT in my quilt studio!
