This is a lot of people liked the buttons I made for my website so I threw together a CodePen and added comments. This is pure HTML/CSS implementation of some SVG buttons with a cool hover effect. The colors and shapes can be customized to fit your needs.

HTML

<div id="workarea">
  <div class="position">

    <!--start button, nothing above this is necessary -->
    <div class="svg-wrapper">
      <svg height="40" width="150" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
        <rect id="shape" height="40" width="150" />
        <div id="text">
          <a href=""><span class="spot"></span>Button 1</a>
        </div>
      </svg>
    </div>
    <!--Next button -->
    <div class="svg-wrapper">
      <svg height="40" width="150" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
        <rect id="shape" height="40" width="150" />
        <div id="text">
          <a href=""><span class="spot"></span>Button 2</a>
        </div>
      </svg>
    </div>
    <!--Next button -->
    <div class="svg-wrapper">
      <svg height="40" width="150" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
        <rect id="shape" height="40" width="150" />
        <div id="text">
          <a href=""><span class="spot"></span>Button 3</a>
        </div>
      </svg>
    </div>
    <!--End button -->

  </div>
  <a id="personal" href="http://www.tylermarkpeterson.com">www.tylermarkpeterson.com</a>
</div>
