Oooo, wonderful buttons!  (I'll want a tag for those too please Smiley .)

If you don't want to use your Dremel for the holes, things like tiny coffee stirrer straws can be twisted down into the raw clay (then removed, and clay blown out or straw cut off) to remove perfect little round plugs of clay for making holes in buttons, pendants, etc.

Wow, those are fantastic! My favorites are the checkered ones.

On a nosy note, I tried making polymer clay buttons once, they seemed to be very breakable. Do you mind if I ask what the approximate dimensions of yours are? How thick, diameter, etc...thanks so much in advance!

Great work!
