Make your message POP with flashing LED buttons!
Here's how it works...in 3 simple steps!
- 1. Make a button as you would normally and then use our Metal Craft Punch to punch a 1/8” hole through the button.
- 2. Take the flashing LED assembly and remove the tear away paper from the back and simply insert the LED through the hole you made in the button. (The flashing LED assembly includes a safety pin making it very easy to attach to clothing.)
- 3. Then, remove the clear safety tab from under the on/off button and you are done!
And you have multiple display options too! At times you may not want the flashing LED directly in the center of the button. The bigger the button, the more options you have on where you can insert the flashing led assembly. If you move the LED too far outside the center of the button, it may not hang correctly if you are using the safety pin that is included with the flashing LED unit.
But not to worry! We have many options to make sure your flashing artwork or message hangs straight:
1.5” Buttons: Mount the LED unit directly in the middle of button and use supplied safety pin.
2.25" Buttons: Gives you a little more room to move the LED around the surface of the button. To wear, you can simply use the supplied safety pin. If your design requires the LED to be offset, you may use mag-tags, bulldog clips or bar pins.
3” and 3.5” Buttons: Much more room to move LED unit around.
If necessary, you may use mag-tags, bulldog clips, or bar pins. Punching the hole in a button works best if you use our flashing button kit as you only have to punch a single layer (front shell) of metal. Our Metal Craft Punch will easily punch through two layers of metal as found in a standard pinback button (shell and pinback), but sometimes the punch can leave a small mark on the shell.
To eliminate this completely, you can simply use our flashing button kit. Have fun making your flashing LED buttons by experimenting to see what works best for your designs!
