Like a button someone would wear? Or one with holes in it?

I'd crop it into a circle, then play with the shadowing, bevel & Emboss layer styles in photoshop - LOL - not sure if thats much help or not - but thats how I would do it :)

It is for sure fun to learn how to make a flair from scratch! BUT if you wanna take the easy way out ;)
Check out Gunhild Storeide (http://www.storeide.se/gunhild/). She has a free flair template!!
Go to her freebies section then to Day 7. You will find the 4shared link there! :)

Here is the preview and some info.....
Kerri asked about how to make flair buttons, so I have made these templates in .pspimage and .psd format. There are two different buttons, one more flat than the other. Paste your own color/pattern into the "bottom" layer, and if you want to add a flower, text or something into the button, paste it into the "middle" layer. Merge visible layers and your flair button is finished. Size approx. 600x600 pixel.

You can also add like a silver or gold band around the flair if you have any styles that do that. :)T
