hi! I just got my 2 1/4 badge-a-minit press today and I successfully made a couple buttons with it. I'm trying to make mirrors now though and I keep screwing up. I figured I would ask for help before wasting more supplies. I'm using a thin piece of fabric rather than paper. The fabric doesn't seem to want to wrap around it. It will all go together successfully but the fabric somehow won't. Does anyone have any advice about this? I can't find a tutorial/instructions on the badge-a-minit website so if anyone knows of one, that would be super helpful! Smiley

this is what I have, btw : http://www.badgeaminit.com/handpresskits.html (the first one)

howdy! i have a badge-a-minit 1 & 1/4 machine, and while i can't do mirrors with it, i have made fabric covered buttons. let me tell you- it's a bitch. but it can be done!

after you've 'popped' the fabric through (step 4 in my directions, probably the same with yours...i think the 2 & 1/2  has the same steps) make sure to pull it out the sides before securing your backing/mirror. just go slowly. the trouble i had was the the fabric would come out and fray...so make sure to put some glue on the edges first, and let it dry. another tip- use thin-ish fabric.

i hope that helps, somewhat...good luck and have fun! i loooove my button maker.
