New-ish Badge Sets

cakeify badge set

I let my Cakeify & Friends badge sets sell out recently so that I could make a new set with the watercolour characters. Don’t they look cute? Plus, with only three badges in the set now, they’re cheaper too!

Kawaii Japan Badge Set

I also changed up my Kawaii Japan badge set with a new and cuter Mt Fuji, plus the packaging has had a little update too. You can find both sets in my shops now and I’ll be updating my pick and mix badges too, but feel free to ask for any of these new designs.

I’m also still running an offer to get a free badge set if you spend £5 or more. There’s only a handful left so don’t miss out on some freebies.
