DIY Polymer Clay Buttons

I keep seeing cute projects labeled "What to do with all you buttons" or "How to use up your button collection" and I started to get upset, because I felt like everyone was leaving me out of some secret club of button hoarders or something.  I have no buttons.  So I decided to remedy that problem.  First, I grabbed a block of clay.

Then, I took a chunk and moled into a sphere.  Your's can be however large you like.

Then, I used my thumb to crush the sphere until it was about 3 or 4 millimeters thick.

I rolled the circle along the table on it's side to flatten them, and then used a toothpick to put two holes in it.

I made quite a few of these, and experimented with color, shape and size.

I like them, and now I'm part of the button club!
