Christmas Gift Idea #3: Cover Button Christmas Card @ ILikeBigButtons.com December 13 2021

*Just a reminder our Christmas Crafts Giveaway Week is coming to an end soon! Make sure you have entered to win:

GRAND PRIZE: KAM Professional Snap Press: Enter to Win

Final Daily Prize: 200 sets Long Prong Starter Kit with Pliers: Enter to Win

🎄 🎁 🎄  🎁🎄 🎁 🎄 🎁 🎄 🎁 🎄 🎁 🎄  🎁🎄 🎁 🎄 🎁 🎄

You could make the Cover Buttons into fabric cover button earrings with our Earring Supplies and it could double as a gift and Christmas Card.

Supplies:

Instructions:

1.  Cut your fabric scrap. You will want a circle that is about twice the diameter of your button blank or use one of our handy Plastic Cover Button Templates.

2.  Put your fabric piece in the larger assembly tool piece (RIGHT SIDE DOWN). When you look into the tool you want to see the back of the fabric.

3.  Place the button front (the domed piece) on top of the fabric. Leave the fabric edges hanging out.

4.  Press the cover button edges down into the tool.

5.  Place the back cover button piece on top of your fabric and button front. If the cover button will be subject to repeated tugging from the back, you may want to add a little e6000 adhesive before attaching the back.

6.  Take the smaller piece of the assembly tool and with the open side down place it on the button back.

7.  Press down. You may hear a pop when the last bit of the button back slips into place. If you take the tool out and the button is not completely secured, just put it back in and press down again.

8.  When you take the small assembly tool piece off, the fabric edges will be secured underneath the button back.

9.  Remove the button from the larger assembly tool piece.

10.  Tada!  First step complete.

11.  Using a ruler, I made 8 straight lines of varying lengths.  Then I drew a bow on top of each and a small ornament top.

12.  Then in your best print write Merry Christmas.  How else doesn't like their own handwriting :P ?  I need to practice my pretty cursive more often.

13.  I think it turned out lovely.  You could also make the Cover Buttons  into fabric cover button earrings with our Earring Supplies: Earring Posts and it could double as a gift and Christmas Card.

Christmas Gift Idea #2: Key Fob Wristlets @ ILikeBigButtons.com December 02 2021

Supplies:

1.  Cut an 11" section of Cotton Webbing and Fabric strip, create an 11"x2.25" strip of Fabric and an 11"x1" strip of Heat N Bond. If desired you can make the wristlet longer, some crafters go as large as 12-14" but 11" is a nice universal size.

2.  I made a template out of chipboard that was 12"x1.25" to help me achieve a consistent size and look. Fold in and iron the fabric to 1.25" wide.

3.  Center and iron Heat N Bond to the underside of the Fabric strip.

4.  Remove Heat N Bond backing and turn finished Fabric Strip right side up and iron to Cotton Webbing making sure to center it.

5.  Stitch along the edge of your Fabric strip, securing the edge onto the webbing.  Work slowly, keeping close to the edge.  Go the whole length on both sides.


6.  Fold the Cotton Webbing in half, right sides facing out and match up the ends.  Secure with Sewing Clips and stitch the ends together with a zigzag stitch.  Trim any loose threads and lightly coat the end in Fray Stop or equivalent liquid to help resist fraying over time.

7.  Tuck the sewn seam ends into the Key Fob Hardware, making sure that the Cotton Webbing is in there evenly and not hanging out one end or the other.

8.  Using your Key Fob Hardware pliers squeeze the Key Fob Hardware closed a little at a time.  I like to go back and forth a couple times so that I don't over-crimp one side too much.


9.  Add the Key Ring and Yay!!! You are done.  Good Job!!!

* Instructions for 1.25" Key Fob Hardware (adjust accordingly if using 1" Hardware)

2. Put in a saucepan, stir together and bring to a boil.
3. Let boil for 5 minutes, keep an eye on it and continue to stir it.
4. When 5 minutes is up, pull it off the stove and add vanilla and baking soda and stir (it will double in size).
Add:
• ¾ teaspoons of Vanilla

6. When cooled, break it up and eat.
 

Christmas Crafting In My Kitchen @ ILikeBigButtons.com December 18 2018

This week I am spending time crafting in my kitchen. 😊 One of my kiddos favorite tradition is a few days before Christmas we visit all our neighbors with treats and wish them "Happy Jesus' Birthday!"

We spend upwards of 20-30 minutes at each house. 😂 Our cookie run often takes a few evenings to complete. Not the swiftest, but a wonderful time where we get to really talk with our neighbors and enjoy them in more than passing.

This year I thought I would share my favorite easy, but tasty Christmas treats.

KAM Snap Upcycled Jean Christmas Ornaments by ILikeBigButtons.com December 05 2018

Today I decided a need a few Upcycled Jean Christmas Trees. As I have mentioned in the past, finding jeans destine for the scrap pile is no problem with a house full of rambunctious kiddos. These cute trees also remind me of some that my parents had when we were growing up.

Supplies:

  • A set of holey Jeans
  • Star KAM Snaps
  • KAM Snap Pliers and Awl
  • Fabric of your choice (I picked Christmasy colored cotton fabric)
  • Ribbon
  • Quilt Batting or Pillow Stuffing
  • Fabric Adhesive
  • Standard Sewing Machine
  • Scissors

1.  Make a simple Christmas Tree template and trace on your jean fabric with a permanent marker.

2.  Make pairs of each tree so that you have a front and back for each tree. You could also use felt or fabric on the back to extend the impact of your jean fabric.

3.  Cut the Christmas Tree template down. I took about a 1/2" on each side/angle. Make a Fabric Christmas Tree silhouette for each Jean Christmas Tree.

4.  Use a Fabric Adhesive to adhere the Christmas Tree silhouettes to the fronts sides of the Jean Christmas Trees.

5.  Use a decorative stitch to outline the Upcycled Jean Christmas Trees on two sides. Then fill with quilt batting or pillow filling.

6.  Finish stitching along the bottom swoop of the Christmas Tree. Add a loop of decorative ribbon and a Star KAM Plastic Snap to the top of the Christmas Tree.

Additional Crafty Ideas:

  • You could add multiple cuts along the edges of the trees to add more character.
  • Or you could fray the edges of the trees.
  • You could give the trees finished edges, but that wasn't the look I was personally going for.
  • You could add KAM Snaps; both Star, Heart, and Round shaped into the body of the tree to represent ornaments or twinkling lights.

7.  Tada! I think they turned out great and add a great pop of color to our Christmas Tree.


Christmas In July @ I Like Big Buttons! July 22 2018

It feels like Christmas in July in our I Like Big Buttons! household.

We have been busy helping our small community church prepare goodies for the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes that our church sends out each year. It is a great way to demonstrate to and with my children what it means to love and reach the unreached.

Given how excited my children, who have much in comparison, are about the little packages we put together, I can only imagine the wonder each girl and boy has when they open the special boxes we have packed for them.

This year we were tasked with making little bead & necklace kits which feels right up our alley. 

I think they turned out pretty nice and with my many helpers, the task wasn't overwhelming. So far, we have put together 225 bead necklace kits. I am sure some more beads will make their way to us. 

Next, we were put in charge of cutting in half all the construction paper so that it fits neatly in the shoeboxes. I may have volunteered for this task because I have the largest paper cutter around. :P

Our task for the upcoming week is sewing kits. I bought some simple hotel sewing kits off of Amazon that we are going to jazz up with some extra goodies.

Like an overabundance of "free" fabric, Grandma dropped on my doorstep when she was cleaning her home.  I think for my sanity and to bless someone else, it should be donated to Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. Seems like a win, win! :)

We are also adding extra thread, bobby pins, buttons, floss, ribbon left over from our bead necklaces, and scissors.

I hope you enjoyed a glimpse into Christmas in July at I Like Big Buttons! I am sure there will be more Operation Christmas Child projects to come as November approaches. My kiddos and I are on our OCC director's short list. She knows we are cheerful, ready, and willing to make her crazy ideas a reality. :)

Last year, our tiny community church made almost 800 boxes which amazes me. God is Good!!! If you haven't checked out Operation Christmas Child and Samaritan's Purse, you should. It is an outstanding program run by Franklin Graham.
