Button Making: Home


To borrow the button-maker, visit the library checkout desk. You can check it out for three days at a time. Along with the button maker, the bag includes a circle cutter, instructions, and supplies. 

Buttons and magnets are free to make. The exception is if you plan to sell the buttons, in which case they are 10 cents per button and 15 cents per magnet. 

Library catalog record: See whether the button-maker is checked out. Look at the Status field to see whether the button-maker is “charged” (checked out) or “not charged” (available).

Blank Template

You can create a button design in Microsoft Word. Download this template as a size guideline, then use color, text, and images to make your design. 

The dotted inner circle represents the part that shows on the front of the button. Make sure the important part of your image falls within that dotted line.
