Snap Press

Button Press - 1/2 Fun Buttons

OK, we bought this button press a while back. It was a joint purchase between Swing Des Moines and Wallypop. I made up a bunch of super fun pin-up pins and cute little swing dance-related phrase pins and magnets (like “Lindy Babe” or “Fancy a Shag?”). We made lots of Swing Des Moines logo pins.

I’ve made Due Date pins that sell well at baby fairs.

When I go to craft fairs, I take along a little box of pins with astrological signs, sheet music, and a few other things.

But these have been fun. I bought a bunch of children’s books that were in really bad shape at a used book sale this fall. Goodnight Moon. Winnie the Pooh. Lilo and Stitch. Snow White. and this Scooby Doo comic book. And I made pins and magnets out of them. Wally was a little sad at cutting up the books.  We had to keep Frosty the Snowman for him.

But once the pins were all cut out, he went to town making the buttons. Wally LOVES the button maker. And he’s gotten stronger since the last time we got the maker out – he can actually do the handle all by himself now.

Anyway, these book ones are headed for Etsy over the course of the next week or so.
