My daughter is obsessed with cute pin buttons, but I have started to seriously dislike them. She is always trying to put them on her baby sis or will leave them on her shirts and they will get tossed in the wash where I don’t find them until I am folding her clothes. Those pins are not fun to get poked with! Thanks to Fizzy Pops, I have now found a solution that works for both of us. Along with our cute chunky beads we used for our Birthday Ribbon Necklaces they also sent us some Zipper Pull kits. So now my daughter gets to keep her cute happy buttons pictures and I do not have to worry about where she has placed/keeps her buttons when I turn them into a Zipper Tags that she can add to any zipper of her choosing!
What You need:
- Pin Buttons you would like to convert
- 1 inch Zipper pull flat bottle caps
- Epoxy Sticker 1″ Circle Dots
- Glue – Just a tiny bit
Step 1: Choose some cute buttons to convert.
Step 2: Pull the pin/back off the button. Just a little tug and it should come off easy
Step 3: Remove cute picture from metal frame of the button. I found it easiest to use a tip of a pin to start pulling up the edge away from the frame.
Step 4: Trace the adhesive circle on your picture and then cut the picture to fit. The circle was smaller than our original pictures, so we had to pick our favorite part to keep.
Step 5: From here I practically followed the instructions that Fizzy Pops sent with the epoxy stickers…Add a pea size of glue to the back of the pic and apply to the inside of the tag. Add the circle epoxy sticker on top, if you have not already and press firmly to smooth out any air bubbles.
Step 6: Let dry and attach to your favorite backpack zipper or key chain.
I will admit that there were a few tears shed when a certain somebody saw what I did to her pins, but by the time her dad came home from work she was showing them off to everyone!
I think these would be fun to add to her zippers on her sweaters this winter, too!
