Do-It-Yourself: Button, Button, Where is the Button? Easy-to-Make Button Jewelry Pins

Fun button jewelry pins

I never throw anything away in my design studio. In fact, I've been looking at a jar of buttons for over 10 years. It was time I found a use for these wonderful vintage pieces, so I thought I would create a new, free gift item for my loyal customers. 

I decided to create a fun button pin with a little jeweled bling.

Do you hoard buttons and various knick knacks too? Pull them out and get ready to craft!

I have had the best time creating these wonderful pins, everyone is unique and one of a kind. Just like my customers.

Want to make these yourself? Super fun and easy! All you need is pin backs and lots of buttons and old jewelry.

Cut a round piece of cardboard for backing. Then, hot glue a pin back on and cover with a ribbon for extra strength.
