Inspired by this lovely tutorial by How About Orange, I decided to finally make fabric covered push pins for the fabric covered cork board I made a while back. Though colorful fabrics would make some cute buttons, for my board, I decided to stick with regular black fabric.
I bought this kit buttons to cover kit, which was fabulous. I think I might even order a few more really soon. I removed the hoops from the buttons, using regular scissors, by squeezing them off.
The kit comes with handy holders and templates, making the process so easy!
After tucking the fabric in the button, cover with the button back...
... and push it down, using the handy tool that comes with the package.
Place a drop of hot glue on the back of the button and place a flat thumbtack inside. In moments, you'll have a ready to use thumbtack!
Now all I need are items to tack onto my board!
