I made these for a friend's baby shower recently. She's a nurse, so I had to use the vintage nurse button card. I painted  some small frames from Ikea and added thread to the wet varnish, then sealed with another coat. Scrapbook paper for the background and vintage button cards make the main "picture".

these are so cool! i barely got to see them in person (they went the other way around the circle at the baby shower!), and they're even cooler than they looked from a distance!!
