Button snap clip

Attaching Button on a snap clip

There are two ways to attach a button on a snap clip.

1. The first method is:

The pressing button comes with the top, bottom and a white container to press them together. Remove the metal hooks from the bottom button. Insert the metal hook thru one and two holes(refer the picture). Put the bottom button on top of the clip. By using the pilers make them flat. Then follow as per the instructions given in the button package, add fabric and snap both the buttons together.

If you are a dork like me, so excited and already made all your buttons before inserting them in snap clips, then this is for you

Keep everything ready. the button, 50 mm snap clip with a hole on top, long nose plier, e 6000, and a needle n thread.

This is how the back of the button looks. You can see the metal hooks are already pointy. By using the plier, make it little slant so it stays on the same height as the edges.

I am also using E6000 on the holes so the hooks will stay in place.

Insert the needle thru the hole of the snapclip and secure it tightly.

Use e6000 wherever the clip comes into contact with the button.

Let it dry for 36 hours. Boutique Snapclip is ready.

I am not an expert. May be this is not the correct method. I am explaining that there are many possibilities in making right out of wrong things. Hope u enjoyed the tuts.

Thanks for the great idea!! I got obsessive a while back and covered a ton of buttons for things like push pins, magnets, clips, etc. The clips didn't work out because they kept popping off since I was only using e6000. Lesson learned. Too bad because now I've got all these cute buttons with no shanks!
