Pin-back buttons were spray painted with chalkboard paint and attached to each of our linen drawstring bags. You can use chalk markers or paint pens to number each button.

Doris Wai hand lettered each pin-back button for this project. She approached each number a little differently for a whimsical twist. If you are interested in learning more about hand lettering - what tools to use, how to get started and project ideas - Doris shares all of her hand lettering secrets in her recently published book "Extraordinary Hand Lettering".

Stay tuned for more countdown to the holiday inspiration.
