Sometimes a store-bought button just won’t do. For those projects, Haley Pierson-Cox from The Zen of Making shows how you can make your own buttons out of shrink plastic. You can cut them in any shape, and then use high quality pigment ink pens (such as Pigma Micron) to add your own designs. I am LOVING the kitty cat buttons she makes in her example! Get the tute.
