I love flair. Well, I love seeing it online, but don't own any. Where are your favorite places to find flair? What influences which ones you buy - color? picture?

Care to help a flair newbie!??

Most of my flair (which I am totally & sadly hoarding) is from an Etsy shop called A Flair For Buttons. Here's the link.
A Flair For Buttons
I usually base my picks on color and pattern. Price is also a consideration. I have trouble paying more than 25 cents each. Also important to know going in if they are flat back or just pin style (minus the pin). Flat back is easier to work with and has a nicer finish.
HTH and have fun!



JESUS paid it all.

Check Etsy they have many shops that carry flair. I also like A Flair For Buttons and buttonsandbadges, I found them at Etsy. Sorry I don't know how to post a link. I like the flat buttons too great for layouts, I only buy the pin back ones to put on clothing.

I get most of mine from the flair for buttons etsy shop as well. I'm on the DT though. I also use the ones I get from Marcy Penner in my studio calico kits but a lot of her designs don't appeal to me. Chic Tags has some cute ones.

I really like Bossy Joscie - http://joscie.bigcartel.com/
She has super cute images and a wide range of colors. She is also super sweet!
She is changing her setup right now so they will have self adhesive foam backs. The current foam requires adhesive to be added to it.

PaperAddictC, where are you finding it for 25 cents each? I thought Joscie's 50 cent average was good. All of the sets I see on Flair for Buttons are 75 cents. Am I missing the good deal page?

I have to agree with the OP about Josie's flair. Super cute and fast shipping. I have got use use the buttons yet, but I'm glad about the heads up with the adhesive missing on the back...not a big deal nothing a glue dot can't fix.

@tiffanyo - ROFL! Sorry, meant to say 75 cents/piece! I think I'd faint if I saw 25 cent flair! LOL

PaperAddict - that is more like it! Lol
I did find the seller PaperCandys on Etsy and hers are about 31 cents a piece. She has fewer designs that are my style, but worth checking out.

Doh! Forgot that I've also ordered from buttonsandbadges on Etsy. The sets are bigger and work out to just over 31 cents/piece, and have options for the back, including flatback. Was very happy with my purchase.



JESUS paid it all.
