Button Making Ideas by ABM spotlights some of the greatest projects that are shared in The Pinback Button Making Community on Facebook. This week, we take a look at Regina Greco and her very popular Badge Reels!
In today's society, most of us have an ID that we need to keep handy be it for work, school, church, conventions or any of the many other places we go. Badge reels keep them super handy and convenient while saving you from spending tons of time searching through that seemingly bottomless bag or briefcase looking for that little plastic, but oh so important, card!
ABM Badge Reels give the added bonus of letting your personality shine through. Show your co-workers and cohorts who you really are and what you're all about! Be it a proud mom, grandma, a special someone, furry kids, sports or a love of the ocean, you can show it off for the whole world to see.
Regina has perfected the art of personalization with her amazing badge reel offerings. When we asked her how she got started making them she told us, "I started making badge reels a few years ago. When I first started making them I used bottlecaps but I wanted something different. So I looked around the ABM site and saw the 1.5" flatbacks. I purchased the machine and parts. Some of the designs I have are purchased from other sellers and some I make myself. I use the ABM Build-a-Button 5.0 to edit and add text to my buttons. It's so simple to use. I also sell my badge reels on etsy and Amazon Handmade under the name poppinbottlecaps. They are my number one seller. Thanks ABM for all the great products you sell. My next project is going to be fabric badge reels."
All it takes to make these reels of greatness is an ABM Badge Reel, a flatback button in your choice of size 1" - 1.5", a foam disk to stick the flatback button onto the badge reel and most importantly, your imagination! Then sit back, relax and "reel" in the sales!
