I'm a Slayer, ask me how!
There's a Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode in season one, where, when reminded that she has to keep her identity a secret, Buffy replies "In that case, I won't wear my 'I'm a Slayer, ask me how' button." And, as I adore the series, I decided to make my very own!

  • How to make a pin badge. Buffy's Slayer Button - Step 4
    Step 4

    Write in your words...be careful to give them enough space. (I always manage to underestimate how much space I'll need for a word...)

  • How to make a pin badge. Buffy's Slayer Button - Step 5
    Step 5

    Cut slits around the edge of the paper. Make sure you don't cut past the circle you've drawn!

  • How to make a pin badge. Buffy's Slayer Button - Step 6
    Step 6

    Put double sided tape on the front of the button, carefully stick the paper onto it, and put a little bit of the tape around the edges on the back. Then fold the tabs you made in step 5 over, and they'll stick down.

  • How to make a pin badge. Buffy's Slayer Button - Step 7
    Step 7

    Flip the button over and touch up any color, maybe make a border. Then, apply a thin coat of clear nail polish over the pin, which will darken it and cause a little bit of bleed with the marker. (I personally liked that about it, because it makes it seem darker, but I could see people not liking it for their own pin.)
    And you're done!
