When you think of the holidays, you don’t necessarily think of button badges. But if you’re getting tired of the usual holiday décor, using button badges will certainly give you the twist that you’re looking for. Whether you will be using button badges from your collection, or ordering a set of customized button badges from Dandy, you will be sure to love the new spin of these holiday craft ideas!
USING BUTTON BADGES AS TREE ORNAMENTS
Instead of the usual Christmas ornaments, why not use button badges to festoon your tree? Most button badges are colorful and have a glossy laminate, so when the light hits its smooth surface, you still get the same reflective properties of shiny Christmas ornaments. You can use simple string to hang the badges, or simply pin the badges directly onto the tree itself. If using string to hang them, use two badges back-to-back, so the blank backside with the pin won’t be visible.
BUTTON BADGE GIFT TAGS
Gift tags get thrown away all the time – they’re just not worth keeping. But those presents under the tree will not look complete without a gift tag. To make your presents more interesting, use button badges in the place of gift tags. Get badges with a holiday theme or greeting, and simply use a marker to scribble your message or recipient’s name right on the surface. Stick the badges onto the wrapper, or use it as an accent to a bow.
CHRISTMAS CARD PEEK-A-BOO BADGE
The Christmas card you get at the store just looks…well…store-bought and generic. If you want your Christmas card to have a personalized and unique touch, you can create peek-a-boo cards instead. You can find many tutorials online on how to make one, but instead of just using flat imagery for the part that peeks through, you can use a button badge. Using the badge gives your card that added dimension, making it more special and memorable. Be sure to measure your badge to get the right size hole punchers for your card.
MASON JAR BUTTON BADGE LID
Mason jars will never go out of style. Whether you are giving something edible, or just want a chic container for your presents, mason jars can come in handy. Most people would just wrap a ribbon around the top and maybe attach a tag with a greeting, or stick a label onto the lid. You can give your jars an unusual touch by using button badges instead of stickers. This would work well with magnetic button badges that are available in many sizes, big enough to cover the lid.
BUTTON BADGE ADVENT CALENDAR
Advent calendars are an easy way to add holiday decoration to an otherwise blank wall. Instead of using regular, flat numbers for the days of December, use numbered button badges in holiday designs. You can easily give your existing advent calendar an instant facelift by simply pinning the button badges on top of the existing numbers.
