That looks like so much fun! Great project for rainy days trapped with kids. Thanks for the info!
This is a very cute idea. Thanks for shareing it. www.shadezofmichelle.etsy.com
Glad I can help!
Your voice and accent are so cute! This looks like a fun little project!Thank you!
oh *blush* it's Australian.. :)
that looks like fun! :) I odn't have any of the materials at the time though :s - but I'm glad to know about it! Great designs by the way! :0) Very creative! :0)
Very complete and clear and love the little bits of humor. An absolutely perfect tut. Did this with my kids about 15 years ago. Maybe time to re-visit. My friend is visiting this week, we might just try it. Will have to look for "ZIG" pen tho :-( Did you try "Micron"? That's what I have here.
Hey lostsentiments... I made some small kits so that you can make them at home! Let me know if you want :)
LP...I'm not sure if I tried micron.. the pen looks really familiar though.. The ZIG millennium pens are waterproof, fade proof and have archival quality among other things. I would definitely experiment with Micron - saves you spending more money!Glad the tut took you down memory lane ;)
What fun! Great tutorial!
Those are adorable! They would make a great peacoat button!
OMG, this is so cool! I want to try it out. Thanks for sharing!!!
I love using shrink plastic! I never thought to use it for buttons! Adorable!
Nice tutorial! Looks like fun - I'll have to try this soon!
This is Awesome! tHANKS SO MUCH!!!Your item has been hearted and I will definately buy soon!!
Where do you get pre-cut shrink buttons? Cuz that looks AWESOME!
Wow, these are fantastic! I am *loving* your blog! I came across your hot pad tute on Stephanie's blog and when I said I'd be linking to it, she emailed me about your gorgeous creative space. I would love to link to some of your projects if you didn't mind!
Hey folks... the pre-cut buttons were pre-cute by me :) I have them for sale in my Etsy store. Sparebutton.etsy.com
how fantastic is that! sometimes i can't get past the basic shrink things. this is great!
My sister just sent me this link..we tried to make shrinky dink bookmarks this past weekend with mixed results. When she cut circles out of the sheets, she turned the shrunken disks into magnets for my mother. Another variation on what you did.
Awesome Readmore! I'd love to see some pics!
Did you try putting a sealer on the backs after they are shrunken? Like Modge Podge or something?
Hi Tami, I have tried spay on sealers.. but the back goes clear. If that's the effect you're after, then I'm sure Modge Podge or something similar would work :)The reason they go clear if you seal them with a finish, or put glue on them, is because the buttons have the frosted white back effect because there are tiny tiny fine cuts on the back (the rough surface). When a sealer is applied, it fills up those cuts and takes the frosted look away.
What an awesome idea!
Ohhhhh.... I just found some shrinky plastic I had and was wondering what to do with it :D Your work is fabulous!
LOVE this idea-one of the best tutorials I've seen in a while!!!! Wonderful:)
These are probably the cutest homemade buttons I have EVER seen! I feel the need to go out and buy shrink plastic right this very second. So cute!!!
Wonderful! thank you so much for sharing...and I voted you! :-))))fulvia
I just discovered your blog and your tutorials are fantastic! Thanks for sharing, I'm just not sure which project to start first 8-)
Hi I would love to purchase your kit but you are sold out. Will you be doing anymore???Let me know.I love this !!!Debbie O In Idaho
i very very LOVE this!!..
Hi Debbie, I won't be doing anymore kits in the meantime.. I'm heading to Australia on Wednesday for three months, and my circle cutter is broken :( from cutting so many buttons. I will only be offering the shrink plastic sheets from my Etsy store while I'm away. Super sorry!!!!!!!!
Just caught craftnouveau.com twitter about this! LOVE IT! :)
Hiya! Love, love, love the personalized buttons!!! Would you be willing to share tips like what sort of circle cutter you use and how big do you make the buttons before shrinking? Thanks for sharing your creativity! Hope you have a wonderful time in Australia!
Sure! I use the Fiskars large circle squeeze punch. They are a dream to use, but they wear away so fast due to a fatal design flaw (which I've told them about - no reply mind you). and just a normal one hole hole punch to do the centre buttons. So beware, you will get addicted to making buttons, and your Fiskar punch will wear away! I'[m onto my third.. I'm pretty much over buying them though :(
Thanks! Have you seen/tried the Martha Stewart Circle Cutter? Its a flat disc that you slide a cutting tool into and turn the disc. You can cut different sizes and only have to replace the cutting blade vs. the entire punch. I think I might give that one a try. Anywho, enjoy your trip!
Hi,can you tell me what Zig pens you exactly were using? I just bought one today - a Zig Millenium - but it is not permanent on plastic. Maybe you can show us a picture?thanks and have agreat time in Australia,Petra
How do you get yours so perfectly round?!
Hi Petra.. I only saw your comment now! I just checked my email and I didn't get notified of your comment! So sorry, but better late than never! :-sHere's a link to a pic with the pens I use.. can't believe it.. so sorry once again!And Shirley... I used a circle hole punch! It was a Fiskar squeeze punch.. unfortunately.. they punches wear out really quickly though :(
Arg! so the links! silly me! http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_i5SFbhz3XJw/SoA_OEJrjdI/AAAAAAAAANw/J92TWzw8ghQ/s400/equipment.jpghttp://4.bp.blogspot.com/_i5SFbhz3XJw/SoA_Oxh6PYI/AAAAAAAAAOI/UH9TgOPkEUw/s400/s2+drawing.jpg
I absolutely love these! What creativity! :)Marybethhttp://suiteheart.blogspot.com/
I previously bought a large amount of shrink plastic for a ring pattern I found. This is very cute. I now know what I am going to be doing with my left over sheets. Two thumbs up!!
Hey Lace, thanks for stopping by. I bet that ring pattern is the same tutorial which go me started/hooked!!!
I have a tip for getting hand lettering that is neat and tidy. Take scraps of shrink plastic and write your words on the scraps. Flip them over so they are backwards. Then place your project over the scrap and trace the backwards letters. Works every time!
Oh wow I LOVE these!!!!
Love this idea thanks for sharing.
brilliant! I have all these supplies on hand.
Really cool idea, all I've ever made with the stuff is jewelry, zipper charms, and pet tags.
LOVE these! What size circle punch do you use to start with? I know you said it was a fiskars punch. Thanks for sharing your ideas! :)
Hi Tiffany, I used size Large for the Fiskars circle punch. Enjoy!
thanks for sharing, lovely !!!
your tutorial is brilliant and I love the buttons that you created, fantastic
incredible !!! I don't kow this before !! do you know the name in french ? that's "plastique fou" ?
It is amazing how this may be true. I would not have believed.
I'm just wondering what size buttons holes you start out with. I feel like my normal hole punch 1/4" would be too small once shrunk, especially since I plan on using yarn with mine.
Hi Stephanie, the button holes end up big enough to sew thread through with no problem. It's hard to say as I don't know how think your yarn is.. If in doubt just do a trial. I must have shrunk hundreds of buttons before I got them exactly how I wanted them.. Good Luck!
Will you be selling this kit in your etsy store? I'd really like to get your patterns. I want to try this so badly!
Hi Bonnie, Unfortunately, I don't have any plans to sell these in my store anymore..If you want the patterns, you can send me your email address, and I'll try and digg up the templates for you. All the BEST!Kimanh xo
WOW it's so amazing... \(o>o)/like magic went it became small buttoni wonder if in my country, i can get the plasticit's really unique
hi! i really love th design on your buttons!can you send me the picture of the template to me?i would really appreciate that!THANKS TONS!!
Which size punches did you use for the buttons? As a seamstress and knitter, being able to make my own buttons would be incredibly handy!Many thanks :D
Hi! I am so glad I have found out this web page! It is so amazing! I would like to try to make these buttons myself, but your store is closed. Is there any possibility to get your patterns? And which sort of plastic sheets do you use? I spent ages searching for it on the Internet. I tried to find some distributor for the Czech Republic, where I live, but I could not find any. I would like to but on ebay or something alike. Could you please email me on 326724(at)med.muni.cz?Thank you very much :) and again - good job with these buttons!Miriam Mala
I am really sorry, I have written my email address wrong in the comment above, really do not know what I was thinking of :)it is 326724(at)mail.muni.czThank you again. Miriam Mala
