I have been wanting to remake some of my one-inch buttons using my own images, but I could never get the image paper to sit properly. Well, I finally figure it out. The answer is a bottle cap...like the type on old glass bottles or beer bottles. I made a few, and they turned out great, but for some reason my camera is not focusing at all, so I couldn't get any good pictures. I did, however, take pictures of the process; which I turned into this tute:

The final image I have says "I (heart) boys who sparkle"

I will happily do personal swaps for beads, buttons, and fat quarters!

cute idea. but try a macro setting on your camera? most cameras set on auto or normal can't focus on things up close.

The battery was dying, so it wouldn't focus. It's fixed now!
