Lac Deschênes - Ottawa River Important Bird Area Guardian of Nature Custom Buttons!
Lac Deschênes Ottawa River Important Bird Area (IBA) is one of 600 sites across Canada recognized internationally for its importance to birds. However this IBA is particularly interesting because it is found along the Ottawa River right in the heart of the National Capital region. This site is a significant resting spot for migrating waterbirds and there is always something interesting to see along the Ottawa River.
Nature Canada calls this site Naturehood and they are working to connect Ottawa and Gatineau residents to the nature in their own backyard. These “Guardian of Nature” buttons will be a great way to engage youth in the Naturehood program by proclaiming them an “official Guardian of Nature.”

Rosettes are used for many purposes; they are great for events or as reward buttons, award buttons and as tokens of appreciation. These rosettes are hand-made in Canada and have a soft, full, plush feel and are of excellent quality. And now you can make your own!!
Rosettes: A button related specialty

Employee Award Buttons with Rosette
Reward Buttons with Rosette
We stock both 3" and 4" diameter rosettes. The 3" rosettes have ribbons that hang bellow. Both sizes can accommodate up to a 2-1/4" sized button. To make a rosette you need a button maker and prong back button parts: a shell, mylar, a prong back and a plastic back pin-back. In smaller sizes (1", 1-1/4" and 1-1/2") you use a centre hole back and stick the brad prong pin. Don't worry, when you order rosettes the parts come complete.
Rosette with Prong Back Button Parts: For 1-3/4", 2" and 2-1/4" Buttons
Rosette with Center Hole Prong Back Button Parts: For 1", 1-1/4" and 1-1/2" Buttons
To make a rosette button you first need to make your prong back button or center hole prong back button using your button maker. Next push the prongs through the cardboard holes of the rosette and then through the center hole of the black plastic pin-back. Flatten the prongs to hold the rosette onto the button. We stock rosettes in white, red and blue but they are available by special order in 50 different colours. Special order colours may take up to 4 weeks to ship but stock colours will ship the same day.

1" Button Versabacks
Convert 1" buttons into key chains or zipper pulls using a snap in versaback. A versa back is a black plastic button part that snaps into the back of a 1" collet and replaces the lock pin. Once the versa back is inserted it is a permanent and secure back with a 1/8" hole extending out from the back of the button. Attach split rings, key chains or zipper pulls through the hole to add functionality to your 1" buttons.
Split Ring Keyring with Plastic Tab Versaback.
(Split Rings are too big for 1" button versabacks and require the use of a plastic tab).

** Versabacks are also available for 1-1/4" and 1-1/2" buttons - Happy Button Making!!
Button Making: Tecre Graphic Punches
Is it time to invest in a graphic punch for button making - we think so (it will cut your time in half). Graphic punches are used to cut out graphics, paper or photos for button making and are a faster method than traditional "adjustable cutters", scissors or quick cutters. Tecre graphic punches are of all metal construction, have clear and easy visual centering, are compact and light-weight and require very little force to operate. And an added bonus is that these graphic punches come with a manufacturer's life-time warranty and are useful for all sorts of fine-art related projects.
