i'm never sure weather to call these buttons or badges - people seem to use both, and both also seem to be easily mixed up. i had a batch of these made up using up some of the many scraps [that i can't throw out, even if they really are too small for anything!] last year, and they are being re-introduced for spring & summer.
i love these buttons [badges? pin backs?]. i still have my huge collection from when i was a kid, somewhere in a rubbermaid bin at my parent's house. they hung on a long, 5 " skinny woven scarf in my bedrooom, and featured michael jackson, garfield the cat, jem and the holograms and anything with plastic rhinestones or glitter.
