Mimi's Button Day Sign

In honor of
Count your buttons day
I thought this sign is perfect.

Paul’s mom moved from an assisted living to a memory care based building. The facility likes to have the resident‘s name on their door and so my husband asked me to make something. I didn’t know what I was going to do and so I was playing around with what ended up being her sign.

I painted some cardboard off white with Making Memories paint.
I arranged these buttons to form her name. The buttons are woodsy looking.
I adhered some red yarn around her name. What a pain in the butt that was.
The background paper is by C Gull
I used rub-ons to create the word welcome.

The sign was rough looking the way it was with that cardboard showing and I wanted to give it a feminine touch. So to cover the cardboard on the top and bottom of her name, I adhered some pink ribbon and lace from her old stash on top of it.



I’m a little disappointed with the placement of the lace but i came up with a new slogan, 
It doesn’t have to be perfect, it just has to be done.


Thanks for looking.
