Tutorial Tuesday - How to make personlised Buttons from shrinkback plastic

I came across this great little tutorial on Oh!! I Like that... for making your own personalised buttons using little more than pre-cut shrink buttons, a permanent ink pen and a oven or heat gun for shrinking them. I think this could be a great way to capture your childrens drawings or expressions or could even be a great childrens rainy day craft.

If you do manage to make any of the buttons, don't forget to post a photo on the facebook page, Bonkers About Buttons - I'd love to see your creations!


  1. Has shrink plastic buried in craft room somewhere...runs off to dig it up....

  2. I too have shrink plastic somewhere!
    Not button blanks but it has inspired me to make some charms or something!

  3. Is Shrink back plastic the same thing as Shrinkydinks?

  4. I can't find a good way to seal them. What do you suggest?

  5. Thanks for passing this on! If you need more info, Hannah, the original post can be found here: http://scissorspaperwok.com/2011/07/18/how-to-make-clothing-buttons-from-shrink-plastic/
