I have to say that the owners of Epiphany Crafts are pure geniuses! They have developed the only(as far as I know)tool that can create a custom button in seconds! All you need is the punch, coordinating epoxy, and some paper to match your project. But you aren't limited to just buttons, they have many different shapes and sizes to choose from. And they are so easy to use! But just in case you are unsure how these tools work, there are video tutorials HERE and HERE.
What I liked:- They cut nice and clean and it doesn't take your body weigh to punch through the paper.
-The shapes available are classic, universal shapes. Nothing too "theme y". They go with everything!
- Having one of these around, you'll never be stuck without that perfect color or pattern for embellishing your projects.
What I didn't like:
-I can't say that I have any complaints. However, I would like to see more shapes/sizes in the future.
