These badges were so much fun to do, although rather fiddly and time consuming. I made them a couple of years ago, put them in a pot and promptly forgot about them until now.
I found some wrapping paper in Paperchase with a British theme, just in time for the Olympics and Diamond Jubilee. I thought the retro style faces would make nice badges, and some have glittery hair.
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 bought the most lovely wrapping paper from Paperchase whilst in Bath recently which looks like grungy Russian dolls. I have made button badges from the faces and 45mm badges from the bodies. They could be worn together as Russian dolls, or separately as sold.
As soon as I saw this lovely floral owl wrapping paper and knew it would make good badges! The owls were perfect for 45mm badges, and the flowers for 25mm button badges. I have grouped them into little packs of three for sale.
