CamdenJam 2016 - Button Making Event

I partnered up with Connect The Lots in Camden again this weekend, this time instead of painting, I brought my trusty pinback button press to the city to teach kids how to make their own buttons at Camden Jam! It was a HUGE hit. 
First the children colored their designs, then we punched them out,
and they used the press (supervised) to create their finished button!
Since the event was at city hall, which is a Poke-stop, my contact requested that I make some Pokemon-themed designs. I took my Pokemon Go team buttons and turned them into simple black and white outlines, this way kids could color them in, as well as a generic Pokeball and a Pikachu design. (You can't leave out Pikachu!) Surprisingly, the biggest hit of the day was the paper I left blank!

How I Package My Pinback Buttons

New art-related video is up!
This is how I've been packaging my button order lately,
both in person in the Artist Alleys and online for my Etsy shop.

It's been a while since I've made one of these,
but I'm figuring things out filming-wise so that I should be able to make one or two videos a month.
