Kindergarten "I Voted!" Buttons

After my printer decided that my original kindergarten "I Voted" button (above) was too color-rich, I decided to make the buttons using a bit of what I had at home:

* patriotic scrapbook paper

* flag stickers

* large circle paper punch

* paper cutter, scissors, pinking shears, and glue

* tabletop laminator

...and some goodies that necessitated a quick trip to Walmart:

* laminating pouches

* adhesive-backed pins

You already know how I love to laminate (it's a teacher thing):

The adhesive pin backs prevented me from burning the tips of my fingers...since I usually use a hot glue gun:

Now they just need to be cut out, and the kindergartners need to vote on Election Tuesday (they're voting for their favorite story, favorite song, and favorite school lunch):

Just in case you're interested in trying these, I made 70+ pins (there are four kindergarten classrooms at my school) in less than an hour.


Only SEVEN posts away from my 400th post blogiversary! Post a comment on my 400th post for a chance to win one of my Christmas paper banners!
