Ephemera Art Buttons

 These charming Ephemera Art Buttons were the creation of Lin from Lin's Arty Blobs!

I'm not entirely sure of her technique, but I believe she used clear plastic buttons and Decoupaged Vintage Ephemera Graphics to the back of them.  Love these! These adorable little bits of art are featured in the current issue of Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine, so grab a copy if you want the full instructions. Congrats on being published Lin!

  1. oooh, I love these buttons. What a GREAT idea!

  2. I agree with you both! I'm dying to make some of these!

  3. These are so cool! I wonder how you could make them more permanent so that they would be washable. I also wonder where she found this style of buttons (that are so flat and clear).

    Right now I'm going to go work on an embroidered collar for a dress. I am embroidering one of your graphics on it! It would be fun to have matching buttons of the image on the back of the dress.

  4. I tried to get this issue but it doesn't give you that option. I have a project that is waiting for buttons and these would be perfect.

  5. I saw these on her blog, and I've made note of the magazine.
    Another place to see something like these are on a blog who's had things on your Monday Brag, had a how to on May 30th, covering buttons with paper..she's at this address:
    izzy-izzwizz.blogspot.co.uk I've got oodles of rather blah buttons, what a great way to make them into real beauties.

  6. Dear Karen our angel of images. Loving the buttons. Will have to get that magazine a.s.a.p. I'd thought of making buttons with the shrink stuff then put the papers on them or use transparencies. Now you've really got my curiosity going. Have a great weekend. Thanks as always.

  7. I've just come across this Karen, thanks for the feature. I used old buttons, any colour as long as one side is flattish. If you click on the image of the magazine on the link mentioned above [http://linsartyblobs.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/art-buttons-and-new-store.html] you can actually read the article, although that could depend on your screen size perhaps.

  8. Thanks for the info Lin! As you can see everyone loved your buttons!
