krismakes is getting a shop!

29 Sep

That’s right krismakes.com is going to have a shop where you can buy all your favorite krismakes goodies like button badges, greeting cards, magnets, stickers, notebooks, button flairs, handmade envelopes, penpal supplies and much more!

Currently the site is undergoing some reconstructive surgery so please bear with me as I get everything set up for you.  The blog may look funny and not behave how it should right now but I promise it will be better than ever very soon.

Thanks so much for your patience – I really appreciate it.

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 😉

Fabric Button Badges

15 Jun

I’m still having a ball with my badge machine from my dear, sweet partner.  Lately I’ve been into trying out fabric badges.

It’s quite simple, you just need to place the fabric onto sticker paper and lose the mylar (shiny plastic top cover).

Although it is a bit more time consuming as I have to trace and cut the fabric circle out by hand.

I think it’s worth the effort though, don’t you?

PS I wanted to keep these all for myself but I decided not to be greedy and am selling them in my madeit shop!
