These little bat and spider button badges are so cute, and I love the handmade neon paper I found to make them from. The badges have a layer of shimmery or sparkly paper underneath the neon paper, which peeps through to create a lovely effect.
I bought some cute monster wrapping paper recently, which strangely enough was actually for wrapping presents but was also perfect for these different sized badges! They sold very well as my last craft stall.
How cute is this wrapping paper from Paperchase? 😀 I’ve made button badges from the faces and one or two other small graphics, and a selection of others from both 38mm and 45mm badges.
I found some fun “Happy Birthday” spirograph wrapping paper, which has made some super badges of various sizes. I also tried some with added glitter and sparkly circles, but don’t think these work as well.
I bought this lovely bright 1960’s inspired floral wrapping paper from down the road, which I layered with black netting to make these 38mm badges. My mum was rather taken with them!
This lovely bright, bold floral wrapping paper was designed by Linda Barker (of Changing Rooms, remember that?). It’s just one small piece and was a bit more expensive than I would usually go for, but has made some lovely badges. Some I have made just plain, whilst others I have added a layer of black netting with various sequins and glitter underneath.
