Don’t look now, but Valentine’s Day is almost exactly a month away.
That’s right, you’ve barely had a chance to take a breath from the wild and crazy Thanksgiving-Christmas-New Years triumverate that ends the year before the first big holiday of the new year is just around the corner. (And, *ahem*, guys…we’re really talking to you here. We know the ladies know that Valentine’s Day is on its way. So make sure that you do too.)
The question is: what can you do for your special someone this year that will be sweet, sentimental, and original? Luckily, we’re here to help. And the answer is our heart accent rings, which enable you to make lovely heart-shaped buttons for Valentine’s Day!
Here is an example:
How easy are these special keepsake buttons to make? Well as easy as 1-2-3:
- Prepare a button as you normally would, with your supplies and picture graphic. [video tutorial here]
- The only difference is that the red, heart-shaped accent ring (pictured below) is then placed over the graphic and under the clear mylar cover.
- Complete the button.
Oh, and then there is the all-important fourth step guys:
- 4. Make reservations at a nice restaurant, get a meaningful card that expresses your love and appreciation for your significant other, and present the button and any other presents (ring? bracelet? earrings?) to her. Then enjoy the rest of what is sure to be a fantastic evening.
Of course, Valentine’s Day buttons made with heart-shaped accent rings are not just for guys to give to their partners/girlfriends/wives.
These heart buttons also make great valentines from teachers to students or even from a student to the rest of his class.
If you are in charge of a church group, what better way to surprise your group than with a Valentine’s Day button showing your respect and appreciation for their hard work and loyalty?
As with almost all of our button products, the possibilities are endless!
So, here is what you need:

Now go make some heart-shaped buttons and make someone or many someones feel special on Valentine’s Day!
