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!
