This blog is dedicated to stamping, tips, musings, and whatever I want to post. I want my cards to make you smile. You may copy, post, pin, anything you want. To me this is a sharing hobby.

Making My Own Buttons

Dritz makes a little button maker kit for around $3 at JoAnn. Some of these are patterned fabric and some are stamped on cream colored fabric. Easy and fun. You can make a button in about 2 minutes.

I use circle nesties instead of a template and get a perfect cut every time. You might need to add a shim.
