Can You Really Dye Buttons For your Craft Projects? Yes you Can!

Stumbled onto this great idea about dying buttons. No matter what craft project you are doing you will probably need a variety of colors of buttons....from pinwheels to cupcake toppers to cards  and art or any other kind of embellishments.  Most buttons are made out of nylon or some type of plastic.  Rit is one of the few dyes that will color this type of material. It only takes 2 to 5 minutes for the process.  So now you can coordinate your buttons to any color paper or material.  Aren't the white buttons less money than the colored and decorative buttons?

Here's the link to Ritz with the tutorial on how to die buttons-It's Really Simple!
