Winter Craft Ideas
After the holidays, make purse mirrors into an elegant purse accessory. Use needlepoint, beads, faux jewels or one of BAM's pre-printed designs as your artwork.
You can even 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.
You can contact area firms and businesses to be their source for buttons for use at their trade shows and special events.
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!
