Button Tag Valentine


As you may know, I have a large button collection. I have a particular weakness for button jars and have over a half a dozen of them. I am always trying to come up with crafts that use buttons. So I decided that this Valentine's day I would come up with a series of downloadable Valentine's using buttons.

Here is the first one, a Valentine tag with button bobby pins.

What you will need:
  • Color printer and cover stock paper
  • Bobby pins with a glue pad (I recently saw them at the local craft store but if you can't find them there, you can find them all over Etsy)
  • E6000 Glue
  • Buttons
  • Xacto knife & ruler
  • Hole punch
  • Ribbon

Click here to download the template as a PDF. Print the tags on card stock paper. Cut along the dotted lines and use a hole punch to make the circle in the top center of the tag.
Take a dab of E6000 and put it on the glue pad. Glue the pad to the back of a button. Set aside and let it dry for 24 hours. When setting aside the bobby pins it glues better if you prop up the opposite end so the pad can lay flat on the button.

Slide the pins onto the bottom of the tags and thread the ribbon through the tag holes.
