A $2 certificate frame from IKEA, hot glue gun and 2 packages of buttons from Michaels (I found these buttons for $1 each).
And here is my "helper". Meet Shadow.
I lightly drew the outline of the 'L' on a sheet of white cardstock and began gluing the buttons. I started with the larger buttons and filled in the gaps with the smaller ones.
I finished up by layering a few buttons and pulling off all the glue strings.
Thanks for stopping by!
