Make Your Own Button Pins

Hello friends!  Did you know you can easily make your own button pins? It’s really easy to make these fun buttons as party favors, gifts, and just a bit of flare for fun!  I used the “Cute Mermaids SVG”, which is wonderful because you have so many different options for mermaids and ocean critters. I’m making these as little gifts to send to my crafty friends.

To make these buttons, I used the WRMK ButtonPress, which now has a variety of different sizes and shaped buttons you can create. Today I’m making some Large circle buttons.

You can see my full video tutorial here – <LINK TO VIDEO ON PCC CHANNEL>

Here are 10 quick & easy steps for making custom buttons:

STEP 1
Print out your button designs. I used the assembled, flat PNGs included in the Cute Mermaids bundle
Thin copy paper works just fine!

STEP 6
Replace the cutting TOP and BASE cutting platforms with the button-making TOP and BASE for the size/shape button you want to make.
Rotate both so the A marker is lined up with the arrow on the ButtonPress
