Take orders from local businesses for their promotions (such as stores in a mall featuring special holiday sales). The store employees then wear the buttons which advertise the sale
Add a button to a picture frame you're giving as a gift. This adds a personal touch to your gift and shows extra thought was given to that special person.
Create and set up button display racks filled with finished buttons near cash registers in retail stores and negotiate a fee for that service from the owners/managers. A great way to earn extra cash for the holidays!
During school holiday parties, make name tag buttons for room mothers and allow the class to make their own buttons using markers, colored pencils, crayons, stickers, glitter or anything else they can find.
If you are a teacher, your students can make buttons as a holiday activity to take home to mom and dad as gifts!
