What's the best starter in-home button maker?
I'm thinking about getting a button maker for the family as a holiday present. We like buying small pin-on buttons for our bags, etc and I thought it might be fun to make some of our own.
It seems like hobby button makers are really inexpensive (around $30 or less) or much more expensive ($300+). I have no idea what I'm buying, but my spider-sense makes me nervous about committing that much money to an activity the family may not engage in after a few months. On the other hand, I don't want to buy something so cheap and ineffectual it turns everyone off to the idea.
In addition to the press itself, I've seen recommendation of circular cut out tools, so if someone has an opinion on those too I'd be grateful.
