I Love Tea Badges

Sorry, sorry, sorry, Blogger is playing up again leaving me with no pictures….. aghhhh… fingers crossed I’ve sorted it …….

My sister saw the badge (below) and really, really wanted it, but it was in a set of three and cost £10, which was a wee bit expensive.  So I said I would have a go at making her something similar using my Bandai Badge Maker (I have two, one bought from e-bay for about £5 and the other from a carboot for 20p including a full set of badges because the lady didn’t want to take it back home with her!)
It took a bit of computer jiggery pokery to get the size right so that it was centred in badge template but I got there in the end.

I've been wanting to make my own badges, where can you buy a 'bandai badge maker' from?
Cheeky I know but, you will tell me won't you, pretty please?

I thought you were going to put up your new photo? LOL!

Love them .. well done Helen with the pc jiggery pokery LOL.
I am not 100% sure but I think the one your Sister originally saw is a bottle top made into a badge. I have the bottle tops but never managed to have a go at flatening them in the big shot! I too bought a badge maker off ebay, complete with all the badges etc. for less than £5.00
