681  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Button / Badge / Pin Makers on: May 12, 2006 04:51:13 PM
Just have to put in my 2 cents since I've named my three button makers. ^_^ (I have Gus, Jack, and Bruno. They are named after the mice and the dog in Cinderella.)

I bought one from DrDons buttons on eBay, one from Tecre, and I got my 3rd one for Christmas from my sister, which I'm sure came from Tecre.com. Tecre.com has the cheapest prices for the button makers and supplies that I've found, and they have super good customer service. So far every time I've asked a question I've gotten an answer.

You can also send off for their catalog, which is really thin and doesn't have prices listed, though you can see them on the price list that comes with it or on their website. I just like to look at them and pick out which ones I want to buy next... My dad doesn't understand, but I tell him the buttonmaker catalog is just my version of a victoria secret catalog. Smiley

So I did more! I baked them at 450 and longer so the edges rounded more. I smoothed the edges with a dremel, too. I added blue felt to the back because I still prefer that to backing it in nail polish.

That is too cute!! I'm thinking of doing one as a gift for the son of an old friend from high school... She had a boy and I never know what to buy boys. Tongue

Well, I actually used the quick instructionss from Inna's original post found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=8959.0

I just followed her nuking, cutting and baking instructions below her necklace photo and viola! Mine turned out right. I think, like with anything, you just have to keep an eye on things, too, and alter them to make them work out best for you. For example, one cd I did only needed to be microwaved for 3 seconds otherwise it turned brown, and then I preferred adding felt to the back of mine.

Thank you for the compliments!!

They didn't turn out *quite* like I want them to, but I had so much fun doing this I thought I'd try again later. I think I'm going to see how long I can get away cooking them because the edges were still a bit sharp and uncomfortable against the skin, even with the felt. I want to see if I can get them softened up a bit more, or even try to mold them into another shape.

This is the first time I've made felt pins, and I love how they came out! Hopefully you think so too. Smiley I've been trying to be more diverse in the kinds of crafts I try so I have more of a variety on my website. I'll definitely making more of these! They're so much fun. I just hope they sell now. Tongue


I love these, too! I actually made some dangles (I didn't take any photos of though) with some beads from my dad's great grandmother's jewelry and my mom's mom's jewelry so we would have some dangles with meaning on our bracelet. I enjoy being able to show them to people and say, "This is part of my family history, it represents my greatgrandmother and my grandmother."
689  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / My First Scrapbook Page! Toto and the Wizard of Oz on: April 23, 2006 01:04:32 PM
My mom's in a Wizard of Oz group and they're doing a scrapbook swap, 8-1/2 by 11 inches so it goes through the mail easier. Well, I kinda formed the page in my head then ordered the supplies for it. It's not done yet, I need to add a couple of photos of Toto, but I haven't decided to do that yet. My mom wants to incorporate some sort of thing where the Emerald City opens and shows a photo of Toto, so I need to see how I'm going to do that. I expect to make it a glittery green. Smiley My mom also wants to add a small pair of ruby red slippers somewhere because it's her favorite aspect of the movie, so I've got to figure that out, too.

I'm just quite proud of this because it was my first time and I didn't make any royal screwups! Smiley

The back and the front. Instead of sealing it with nail polish I backed it in felt. I used E600 glue, which I swear by.


A collection of the CD pieces I kept. I threw some purple ones I made in the trash because they came out terribly. I love the shine the oven baking gives them!!


This CD was tinted blue so I strung it on a blue cord.


The gold chain on this is a bit short for my neck, but it's still cute!

I really thought she'd get ticked that zapped them in the microwave then cooked them in the convection oven. (22, living at home cuz I can't afford to go to school if I don't, so yeah.) Surprisingly, she was pretty impressed! I think she might even want to try it. She thinks they look like little skirts and wants to make a pin out of one.

I think Mom thinks I'm going to put them on my website for sale, but I'm not too sure. Maybe for kicks.
