I wear pins on a pretty regular basis and i wish i had the money to buy a button maker. so i went the cheap route instead and i am really happy with the end product.  so what i did was i mod poged magazine clippings to tiny wooden cut out and then glued a pin back to them.  i can't wait to start wearing them! (thanks to my little bro by the way for taking awesome pics)









The Whole Lot:


Here are some of the New and Old pins:


THANKS FOR LOOOKING!

They look much more interesting than plastic buttons! How strong is the back and did you use super-duper strong glue to hold them on?

I find I often lose things that aren't pinned on too well or that the back is glued on too weakly.  Cry

That's a really cool idea, plus your pins look so much more unique. Love the Beck one!
