With our baby shower coming soon, I wanted to throw together some fun buttons for the parents to be and grandparents to be to wear. I did not want to spend a lot of money on them though, because they are only going to be worn during the shower. So of course, I hopped into my car and went to the Dollar Tree and Walmart!
tan colored label stickers (Dollar Tree)
gold glitter alphabet stickers (Walmart)
ribbon (7 different colors and styles) (Walmart)
pin backings (Walmart)
I also used my hot glue gun and glue sticks that I already had around the house. I also used some leftover gold glitter and pink camo scrapbook paper that I purchased from Hobby Lobby to use for the Pedicure Spa Jar that I made for baby shower game prizes!
|here is a closer look at the ribbon styles and colors I used|
I took white paper and used the gold alphabet stickers to write out:
Grandma (2 times)
Great Grandma (3 times)
I then cut those out and glued them onto the tan colored label stickers from the dollar store.
I peeled off those stickers and stuck them to the pink camo scrapbook paper. I took scissors and cut those out, trying to match the shape of the sticker the best that I could, with leaving a fun pink camo border around the sticker.
I did the same exact thing all over again, but I glued the cut outs to the gold glitter scrapbook paper this time. I took my scissors and cut them out, again, trying to match the original shape as best as I could.
I then took my ribbons and cut them into various different sizes (2 pieces the same size of each ribbon style and color) I took my hot glue gun and started gluing the ribbons together at the top.
When the ribbons were all glued together, I used a dot of hot glue to attache the name tags I made to each set of ribbons. I also glued on a pin backing just above the glued on ribbons.
I let the glue dry for a few minutes, and then I flipped over the button to look at the pretty front of it, and I took my scissors to trim and shape each ribbon to make them look good together.
Here is the final product:
I am so excited to give them out on the day of the shower, and then be able to scrapbook ours afterwards!
