Mod Podge and Waffle Flower Pin

My sister always tries to outdo me at Christmas.  So this year, I've come up with a handmade, thoughtful gift, and by golly.....she better like it!

She works for an eye glass company so I thought it would be nice to make her a pin that she could wear to work every day, along with her company uniform.

This is what I came up with:

I wanted it to be in an "eye chart" format with a little play on words.  The lettering is from the Waffle Flower "Be My Guest" font stamp set.  I stamped it onto a piece of DCWV Vintage Essentials tissue paper with black Ranger ink, then Mod Podged it onto a piece of Mod Podge Shapeables.  Those are Basic Grey Candy Buttons glued on with Tombow Mono Aqua Glue.  
Got to make sure they stay put!

For the backing, I used Mod Podge on a piece of white cardstock; the tissue paper is so thin, you could see through, so it needed a white background.  This pin base comes all ready sticky, but I'm not taking any chances on it coming off, so I added an extra strip of Tombow Xtreme adhesive to secure it.  It's heavy duty stuff!

I think my sister will get a kick out of this cute pin.  What do you think?

I'm entering this into the December Waffle Flower Challenge, Anything Goes.  Join in yourself and play along here:
