Use buttons to create a unique piece of art for your family. Choose a large letter or a monogramme and fill it in with buttons of various sizes. For best results, try to keep the buttons within a certain colour range, tone or intensity. Mixing in buttons of different sizes and textures will bring interest and dimension to your finished piece.
