I got my 1 1/4 inch button maker from badge-a-minit the other day.
So far, I'm pretty satisfied with it.
Although when I tried to make my first button, I couldn't separate these 2 rings that were supposed to go together and then come apart to be used separately in a later step.
I figured that some tinkering would be required and I probably would lose some buttons on my first few tries. But in the end, I think I've got it.
The only complaint that I have is that the button maker didn't come with 1 1/4 inch button making instructions. Not that I had problems reading the 2 1/4 inch button making instructions. But when I emailed the company (I couldn't call them 'cause I don't live in the US.) they emailed me with tips and more detailed instructions for the 1 1/4 inch button maker.
But hey it works and it works rather marvelously. I'm happy that I got it.
Here's a sample of the buttons I've made.
