Step 1. Cut out 2-8×8 inch squares for the pillow and a smaller 3rd square with a scalloped edge. Use the remaining felt to cut your letters.
Step 2. Find the center of your scalloped square and mark it with a pen. This is where your button will go.
Step 3. Using a glue gun, glue your letters onto the scalloped square.
Step 4. On the edges of one of your 8×8 squares, use a glue gun to attach your trim. Glue the two 8×8 squares together leaving one side open for the batting. Put the batting into the pillow and close the last side.
Step 5. Glue the scalloped square on top of your pillow. Add the button and sew thru the pillow so it creates a dimple in the pillow.
Step 6. Tie a ribbon around your button so you have a place to put the rings.

As a graphic designer, I believe that great graphic design is in the details {read: spending lots of time at the computer looking at pixels.} If you dont know what a pixel is- congratulations- because that’s why graphic designer types exist! {to save your eyesight} Really, though-design is more than matching colors and picking pretty fonts {but I do have major love for fonts} – it’s about conveying your message to the world with a swirl, a flourish, a dot, a pattern- whatever it takes to creatively encompass your clients vision and send that vision out into the world with impact.

That’s what I try to do. EMPHASIS on TRY. I adore designing and am currently the owner of NOTEDOCCASIONS.COM , an online site catering to everyone who loves having a party. And who doesn’t because as I see it, life’s a party!
