Yes, I Like Buttons! OPEN and Shipping!

Yes, I Like Buttons! OPEN and Shipping!

We have gotten a few questions about if we are open and shipping during this time. The answer is YES! We are all healthy and safely tucked at home as we practice social distancing.

I Like Big Buttons! is a completely e-commerce based, family-run business. Since we don't have a physical storefront, we are able to continue our operations as usual. All our items are in stock and ready to ship. Items purchased before 3 pm PT will go out the next business day via our USPS scheduled morning pickup.

My presence on social media may slow, and I ask for your patience with that. I have just become a full-time homeschooling mom for the next 6 weeks, on top of my responsibilities at I Like Big Buttons!, being a full-time wife, and a full-time momma. As many of you know, I am a momma of many, which means lots of "Mom, Mom, Mom!" as the day goes long. Lots of "How do I do this?" and "What am I supposed to do next?" Our school district has been amazing and was able to send all my kiddos home with lots of work, both online and in packet form, to keep them active.

For support or product questions, please contact us at support@ilikebigbuttons.com. We check our email support constantly, but may only get to our social media pages a few times a day. Facebook doesn't always notify us that you have asked a question, so we may not see it in a timely manner.

Thank you,

How To Make A Self Fabric Cover Button: 7 Fabric Cover Button Sizes February 21 2020

Easy Peasy! So Much Fun!

Cover Button Tips:

  • The size of the fabric circle for each Cover Button size should be approximately twice the diameter of your button blank. If you would like a matching sized reusable plastic circle template, simply choose "Add Template" from the drop-down menu and the correct sized tool will be added to your order.
  • When the circle of fabric and Cover Button Cap are snugly situated in the clear base of the Cover Button tool, flip the tool over and double-check the positioning of your fabric. If it has a pattern, you will see a preview of how the button will form and can make adjustments to the fabric before you install the back.
  • You may want to add a dab of E6000 or comparable adhesive before installing the Cover Button Back as a precaution to ensure a permanent hold.
  • Save your fingers: Tip #1 - Use the backside of a permanent marker or comparable item on the smaller sized Cover Button Caps to press them into the clear base of the Cover Button tool.
  • Save your fingers: Tip #2 - Take a flat piece of wood and use it to apply even downward pressure on the pink plunger of the Cover Button installation tool when installing the back.  Not so much pressure that you flatten the button, just until it pops into place.
  • To remove the Cover Button from the clear base once it has been formed, bend the mold slightly and push up from the bottom to pop out the button.

Size 20 (1/2 inch / 12 mm) Self Cover Buttons by ILikeBigButtons.com February 20 2020

We love our Cover Buttons! Easy to make and versatile they are one of my favorite go-to craft supplies.

We carry them in 7 great sizes. The smallest, Size 20 (1/2"), is about the size of your pinky nail in both Wire Back (sewable) and Flat Back (glueable).

  2. Put your fabric piece in the larger assembly tool piece (RIGHT SIDE DOWN). When you look into the tool you want to see the back of the fabric.
  3. Place the button front (the domed piece) on top of the fabric. Leave the fabric edges hanging out.
  4. Press the cover button edges down into the tool.
  5. Place the back cover button piece on top of your fabric and button front. If the cover button will be subject to repeated tugging from the back, you may want to add a little e6000 adhesive before attaching the back.
  6. Take the smaller piece of the assembly tool and with the open side down place it on the button back.
  7. Press down. You may hear a pop when the last bit of the button back slips into place. If you take the tool out and the button is not completely secured, just put it back in and press down again.
  8. When you take the small assembly tool piece off, the fabric edges will be secured underneath the button back.
  9. Remove the button from the larger assembly tool piece.
  10. Tada!

How To Wrap Cover Buttons With Paper by ILikeBigButtons.com January 31 2019

paper wrapped cover button tutorial pic 11

I recently had a customer, Annie, ask if Cover Buttons could be wrapped in paper. I knew of a few customers who had success doing so but had never attempted it myself. Here is a tutorial on how to make Paper Wrapped Cover Buttons and some tips that Annie and I discovered and used.

I love how they turned out. Being an avid reader, I think they are the perfect touch for that special bookworm in your life.

paper wrapped cover button tutorial pic 1

paper wrapped cover button tutorial pic 2

How to Make Paper Wrapped Cover Buttons:

Cover Buttons are easy to assemble:

1. Cut your paper scrap. You will want a circle that is about twice the diameter of your button blank. We used book pages, children's books, and scrapbook paper and they all worked great. You may need to experiment and find what works best for you.

2. Cut a square of wax paper or piece of parchment paper slightly larger than your paper circle. You should be able to reuse it a number of times. I found that the parchment paper held up best.

3. Mist your paper circle on both sides and blot dry. This will help the paper to mold more smoothly to the rounded surface of the cover button front.

paper wrapped cover button tutorial pic 3

4. Layer the wax/parchment paper, then your paper circle on the larger assembly tool mold piece (RIGHT SIDE DOWN). When you look into the underside of the tool you want to see the back of the fabric.

5. Place the button front (the domed piece) on top of the paper and press into the mold. This will require firm pressure. Leave the paper edges hanging out.

6. Press the paper edges down into the backside of the button front.

paper wrapped cover button tutorial pic 4

7. Place the back cover button piece on top of your paper and button front. If the cover button will be subject to repeated tugging from the back, you may want to add a little e6000 adhesive before attaching the back.

8. Take the smaller piece of the assembly tool and with the open side down place it on the button back.

9. Press down firmly. You may hear a pop when the last bit of the button back slips into place. If you take the tool out and the button is not completely secured, just put it back in and press down again.

10. When you take the small assembly tool piece off, the paper edges will be secured underneath the button back.

paper wrapped cover button tutorial pic 5

11. Remove the button from the larger assembly tool piece carefully using the wax/parchment paper to ease the button free.

paper wrapped cover button tutorial pic 6

paper wrapped cover button tutorial pic 7

12. If desired, you can clear coat the completed button with Modge Podge or some equivalent sealer. It will extend the life of the Paper Wrapped Cover Button and give it a glossy finish.

paper wrapped cover button tutorial pic 8

13. Tada! I am particularly in love with the Word Cover Buttons, it was fun picking the words I wanted centered and highlighted.
