Make it Retro Monday!!

Do you miss the good ol’ days? The little white dots lining the halls, the tasty cherries just sitting there for the taking? Ooooh, & those BIG white dots? So tasty, yes?? All them little blue ghosties running away, but OH-SO-TASTY. 😀

Don’t you wish we could return to those days? Well, today we do, with a super awesome PACMAN button! I’ve upcycled my old button I had from a previous jeans month just for this project, & it turned out wonderfully!! Here’s our super easy upcycled PACMAN PACLOVE button tutorial!

First off, supplies:

  • Polymer clay
  • Old button(s) you’ve got lying about the place
  • Scissors or exacto knife

Supplies to make a Pacman paclove button!

First up, cut off/tear off the plastic & design from your old button, leaving behind a shiney metal button! Take your polymer clay colour of choice, roll it out, & wrap it around that lovely button.

Next, roll out a red piece, snip out a “pixelated” shaped heart, press it down on to your button of awesome.

Then, roll out two lovely little balls of yellow (either even or one slightly smaller, whichever you prefer… I made one smaller.) 😉 Flatten them, then cut out little pac-mouths with your scissors, knife, or what-not. Place them on your button, press down carefully so as not to smoosh them, but to make sure they attach. 🙂

I then created a lovely bow using the same methods as the cute mouse tutorial & affixed it to the Mrs PACMAN carefully.

At this point, I placed the button on a little baking sheet & baked this guy for 10 minutes at about 230 degrees fahrenheit , checked it, decided it could bake a teensy bit more, & baked for 5 more minutes. Afterwards, I pulled it out, let it cool, & now all that’s left to do is decide if I want to gloss it or not — it is pretty cool the way it is!! 😉

Have a wonderful night, folks, & I’ll see you for a retro-tastic Treasury Tuesday tomorrow!! ;D
