A while back, we shared a tutorial for making shrinky dink buttons.  The gorgeous designs even came with a template so you could duplicate them.  Inspired, Haley from The Zen of Making decided to experiment with making buttons in different shapes and using different finishes of shrink plastic.  She came up with a genius method for making button templates, as well as a list of tips and tricks that she learned along the way.  If you are button-obsessed, you won’t want to miss this post!  [how to make your own custom buttons]

Project estimate:

  • Paper punch or die cutter, on hand
  • Shrink plastic, about $5 and up
  • Permanent markers, on hand
