Button Badges Back In Store

24 Nov

Just in time for Christmas I’m loading some more of my funky badges into my krismakes madeit shop.  Depending on where you live you might call these buttons, badges, pin-backs or brooches but they are all an awesome way to decorate your wardrobe.  Keep an eye out for future posts where I will show you the different ways I like to wear my badges.

I make my badges from old books and comics that were damaged and destined for the dump.  I look for images that are still in good condition and will fit on the badge with the best part of the image showing – you have to be careful because the badge maker machine “wraps” the image around the badge blank so if you’re not paying close attention you might loose the best bit.  I use a circle paper punch to cut my image after I have carefully removed the whole page from the book.

I also make some lovely fabric badges too.  I try to get really nice patterns and florals for these in fun colours.  For the fabric badges I have to hand cut the circle out as the punch only works on paper.  I think the fabric badges look particularly nice on a plain coloured t-shirt – they really pop.

So badges will cover all your gift giving needs this xmas.  I’ve got badges for him…

krismakes badges come packaged on a kraft coloured tag with twill ribbon ready for giving.  They are really lightweight so are a great pressie to pop in the post especially for overseas as they will fit into a standard envelope making the postage not much more than a letter.  Perhaps you are an avid swapper like me on swap-bot or similar?  Badges cater to so many tastes you really can’t go wrong.  I am more than happy to post to an alternative address and include a little note with your details for your swap partner – just make sure to provide the details in the notes to seller section.

Keep checking the shop as I’ve got more badges to upload as well as some other goodies 😉
