Default How to make...

I'm in love with the buttons that I have been using for hairbows. I make my own bottle cap images and make bottle caps all the time. I'm looking for a tut on these buttons. Can anyone be of any help?

My husband actually has a button making machine to make these. He makes all of his own images just like you do for the bottle caps, and then using this little machine thing he makes them into buttons. I was actually just thinking about using them for bows, but I'm not sure how I would get the backs to stick, because there's the space to put the pin in for buttons, if that makes sense. I can ask him where he got the machine from and how much it was if you'd like!

I would definately appreciate it! I'm thinking in the long run that it would be a great investment! The ones I bought were flat back buttons. So they were super easy to use!

So, it won't let me post a url b/c I'm new but look at buttonbizdotcom

This is essentially what you need to make the buttons. He can't remember where he bought the machine from, but I know he was getting most of his supplies from ebay as they had the best prices. I would start there if you want to buy one.

Oh and he said badge a minute is awful and don't waste your money lol

Oh, and I don't see my reply but a couple of months ago you were looking for a piece and everyone kept saying alta caps or roll a band or whatever, were you talking about mylars? That's what he uses on the tops of his buttons
