Flat Backs are used for crafts were you would like to glue a cover button: jewelry, bracelets, rings, earrings, necklaces, bobby pins and barrettes, scrap booking, and much more.

Wire Backs are used for fabric cover buttons in sewing, shoes, clothing, pony tail holders and much, much more.

Here are the 7 sizes we carry. From 1/2", which is about as small as your pinky nail, all the way up to 1 7/8" in diameter, about the size of the round side of a kiwi fruit. We carry them in both flat back (glueable) and wire back (sewable).

Assembling fabric Cover Buttons is fast and simple. In just seconds, you will have a button ready for your latest craft project.

See our pictorial below:

How to Make Fabric Cover Buttons:

Cover Buttons are easy to assemble:

  1. Cut your fabric scrap. You will want a circle that is about twice the diameter of your button blank.
  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!

Instructions:

1.  Cut your Elastic to 24" length and heat seal the ends with the Lighter.  Be careful to just seal the ends, not start them on fire :).  (You may want to practice on a scrap piece if this is your first time.)

2.  Take your 24" length of Elastic and feed the decorative/shiny side of the Elastic up through the first loop in the Slider over the bar and back down through the second loop in the Slider.

I Like Big Buttons! - How To Make Fabric Cover Button Push Pins July 11 2017

Today I am making Fabric Cover Button Push Pins for my cork boards. I am 'trying' to get more organized with my kiddos paperwork, schedules, and notes that I need to keep track of. The cork boards are up, and now I just need some cute embellished Fabric Push Pins to jazz up my organization. :)

Supplies:

1.  Cut your fabric scrap. You will want a circle that is about twice the diameter of your button blank. *TIP* Our All-In-One Cover Button Template makes creating the right size circle of fabric a breeze.

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. *TIP* To make it easier on my fingers, I use a sharpie marker to apply pressure.

5.  Place the back cover button piece on top of your fabric and button front. *TIP* 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. *TIP* I often use a flat piece of wood to apply pressure, again to save my fingers. It also helps to avoid the button back going in at an angle.

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! Now to attach it to the Thumb Tack and make a Fabric Cover Button Push Pin.

11.  Apply E6000 to back of Cover Button.

12.  Center and press Thumb Tack into place and remove any extra Adhesive.

13.  Let dry and enjoy. Tada, tada!!! So Cute!!!

I Like Big Buttons! Friday Fun Facts: How We Prepare Our Plastic Snaps And Why June 30 2017

For all our new friends and followers of I Like Big Buttons!, it seemed like a great time to introduce you to our amazing Plastic Snaps!!!  For those of you who have been with us for a long time, here is a refresher.

We carry a variety of package deals for our snaps from 10 sets, 25 sets, 100 sets up to thousands of KAM snaps with and without pliers or professional press all at a great price. We have a listing for just about everyone at the price range and quantity you desire.

Unlike other vendors, our KAM plastic snaps are optically counted.  This means every cap, socket, and stud is counted, and the amount purchase is assured to be at or above the purchased quantity (we allow overcounts, but not undercounts).  Plastic snap batches can vary by 5% or more in weight (even between batches of the same color), so if your vendor is weighing them, you may not be getting what you paid for.

25 packs sets came to be largely for cloth diapers.  Most customers that replace Velcro on cloth diapers with snaps have numerous diapers in varying colors.  Many found purchasing 100 of each color wasteful, as they ended up with 75% of their snaps left over.

We provide the best of both worlds, smaller packs to those that want greater variety and larger packs for those looking to use snaps in bulk.

Some of these reasons we offer these great options include:

*A large demand from customers for just 25 snaps to convert or complete a single diaper.

*An equally large demand for “just a sampling of every color”, which gave birth to our sets of 10 and Starter Packs.

* More compact, informational packaging that includes the name, quantity, prong length, and instructions about which Die and Rod to use.

* We also offer individual parts in quantities of 100 and 1000 in all of KAM Plastic Snaps 130+ colors.

If you aren't sure how to jump into plastic snaps, we also carry starter packs including multi-packs of 10 or 25 sets of snaps.  If you are new to snapping, we have starter packs with plastic snap pliers, awl, and an instructional DVD.  These Starter Packs are a great way to get addicted :).  We have 18 preset themes including Rainbow Spectrum, Pastel Spectrum, Vibrant Boy, Vibrant Girl, Patriotic, Military, and many others. 

Check out our convenient Starter Packs:

We also offer an option to choose your own colors.  You can pick from any of KAM Plastic Snaps 130+ fun colors. Have you taken a moment to check out our new easy to navigate KAM Snap Visual Ordering Chart with new lower pricing!?!

I Like Big Buttons! - How To Make A Fabric Cover Button Brooch Pin June 27 2017

Today I would make a Fabric Cover Button Brooch Pin. I have gotten a number of questions about how to turn Cover Buttons into Brooch Pins. This adorable fabric inspired me to make some cute embellishments for myself.

I Like Big Buttons! - How To Make A Fabric Cover Button Full-Size Clothespin June 20 2017

Today, I made an adorable office or home accent: Fabric Cover Button Mini Clothespins. I am absolutely in love with their bright colors and tininess!

Supplies:

  • 1 Completed Flat Back Fabric Cover Button (Attach Size 30 (3/4 inch / 19 mm), Size 36 (7/8 inch / 23 mm), or Size 45 (1 1/8 inch / 28 mm) flat back cover buttons.)
  • 1x Full-Size Wooden Clothespin
  • 1x Medium Plain Button
  • E6000, Hot Glue, or comparable adhesive

I Like Big Buttons! - Picture Tutorial Below:

1.  Cut your fabric scrap. You will want a circle that is about twice the diameter of your button blank. *TIP* Our All-In-One Cover Button Template makes creating the right size circle of fabric a breeze.

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.

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

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! Now to attach it to the Clothespin.

11.  Use Hot Glue or E6000 to adhere a small plain button to the underside of the Cover Button. This is to fill the space between the back and the edges. You can also use felt or some other small object. You just need it to be sturdy enough to offer support. A small plastic button works great for this. You will see that the button is now flush across the bottom. I cut off the little nubs of glue that leaked through the button holes.

12.  Now adhere the finished Cover Button to the Clothespin. Press into place and center it until you are pleased with the alignment. Set aside to dry.

13. Tada! Additional uses:

  • Add a thin magnet to the back and use on your magnetic board.
  • Add a push pin to the back and use on your cork board.

I Like Big Buttons! - How to make a Fabric Pacifier Clip with KAM Snaps, MAM Ring or O-Ring and an KAM Plastic Pacifier Clip for Button Style Pacifiers June 13 2017

Today, I am making a pretty Fabric Pacifier Clip for Button Style Pacifiers using our silicone MAM rings and O-Rings. Pretty & functional! :)

Supplies for a Fabric Pacifier Clip with Button Style Pacifier Adapters:

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 1

Instructions:

1.  Choose a piece of Fabric, cut it to the dimensions: 14" x 3 1/2", the finished product once ironed, folded and sewn will be approximately 7/8" wide x 12" long.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 2

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 3

2.  Fold both 3 1/2" wide ends in 1/4" and iron flat.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 4

3.  Now fold and iron the fabric in half the long way (14" length).

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 5

4.  Then fold and iron again, bringing the outer edges to the middle "iron line" and iron along those edges. Repeat on other side.

5.  Re-iron the seam so that the Fabric is smooth and flat, it should now be 13 1/2" long x 7/8" wide.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 6

6.  Open the top of the Fabric strip and trim the excess internal fabric at an angle so that there is less chance of the ends peeking out when sewn together.  Repeat on the other end.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 7

7.  Pin the Fabric strip in a couple places to keep it in place.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 8

8.   Sew a 1/8" seam all the way around the piece making sure to back stitch at the start and finish to set the seam.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 9

9.  Now installed a Cap and Stud about 1/2" from the edge and the mating Cap and Socket about 1 1/2" later so that the center of the two KAM Snap parts are about 1 1/2" or more apart.  Any closer and I found I had trouble getting the MAM Ring or O-Ring Adapter to sit neatly inside.   I used Size 20 snaps for this tutorial but either Size 20 or Size 16 will work great.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 10

10.  Repeat on the other side, that will hold the Pacifier Clip.  I, then, feed the Pacifier Clip and MAM Ring Adapter onto the ribbon and snapped it into place.  It may have been easier to thread on the pacifier clip before installing any Snap parts but I was able to feed it through without much trouble.

11.  Tada!  Now time to add the Pacifier.

12.  Simply stretch the MAM Ring or O-Ring around the Button Style Grip on the Pacifier and it will settle behind it and hold the Pacifier securely. Now snap the Pacifier in place, attach to your child's shirt and go.

Friday Fun Facts - Who is ILikeBigButtons.com? June 09 2017

It has been a while since I have introduced myself. Hi! I am Gena, the CEO and MOM of I Like Big Buttons! :) ILikeBigButtons.com is a family run, small business located in beautiful Washington State. We have been serving our customers for over a decade via the internet.

When I am not busy growing our craft business, I am a busy momma of many. I grew up as many of you probably did, crafting with anything I could get my hands on, from twigs to the pansies in my momma's borders. Now I am raising my own children and watching them create little figurines out of twigs and weeds, and turn paper into shreds. If you walked through my house on any given day, you might mistake it for a confetti factory. Bits of paper and imagination are everywhere!!! Since I am up to my elbows in kiddos and crafts, I thought, why not sell crafty things?

Plastic snaps caught my eye first. My husband is the creator of the GotLux Professional Photographic Lighting Accessories, and he used these very snaps in his Pro and ProX models. The colors and usefulness of them drew me in. I discovered the many varied ways they can be used; I was hooked.

So here I am selling KAM plastic snaps and many other craft items that I love with the help of my amazing children and husband. I am sure you will find as much joy in crafting with them as I am. It is a privilege to get to help support my family, teach my children to have a solid work ethic, and be a full-time mom all because of I Like Big Buttons! and your support.

Thank you,

Gena (CEO of ILikeBigButtons.com)

1.  Cut your fabric scrap. You will want a circle that is about twice the diameter of your button blank. *TIP* Our All-In-One Cover Button Template makes creating the right size circle of fabric a breeze.

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. Glue the magnet inside the back of the Cover Button with Hot Glue or E6000.

4.  Place the button front (the domed piece) on top of the fabric. Leave the fabric edges hanging out.

5.  Press the cover button edges down into the tool. *TIP* To make it easier on my fingers, I use a sharpie marker to apply pressure.

6.  Place the back cover button piece on top of your fabric and button front. *TIP* 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.

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

8.  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. *TIP* I often use a flat piece of wood to apply pressure, again to save my fingers. It also helps to avoid the button back going in at an angle.

9.  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! Now you have an attractive Pin Cushion/Needle Holder for your sewing room.

Cover Button Embellished Pacifier Clips by I Like Big Buttons! May 30 2017

I have had a lot of questions in the last couple years about how to make these clips so I decided to take it on. A Pacifier Clip made extra adorable with the added Cover Button accent, they are a great accessory to add to your baby's wardrobe for any special occasion or just because.

Supplies:

Instructions:

1.  Using our Pacifier Clip and Supply Tutorials make either Ribbon or Fabric Pacifier Clips.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic2

2.  Cut your fabric scrap. You will want a circle that is about twice the diameter of your button blank.  I cut out a Piece of Fabric using my Size 36 Template.

3.  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.

4.  Place the button front (the domed piece) on top of the fabric. Leave the fabric edges hanging out.  Double check the transparent underside to see if your print is how you would like it.   Then press the cover button fabric edges down into the tool.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic7

5.  Add a dab of E6000 Adhesive to the middle of the cover button cap before installing the Flat Back.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic8

6.  Place the back cover button piece on top of your fabric and button front.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic9

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

8.  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.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic10

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

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic11

10.  Remove the button from the larger assembly tool piece.  Tada!  My Cover Button is ready to be adhered to a Round Faced Metal Clip.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic12

11.  Here a the Cover Buttons I made in just a few minutes.  Seriously easy, fun and so cute!

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic13

12.  Now take the E6000 Adhesive and put a medium size dab of glue on the back of the Cover Button about 1/2 of what would fill the back area of the back.  This glue is great to work with so don't overly worry about getting the amount just right.  I was able to cleanly wipe of any excess off when I put on too much and I was also able to remove the button and add a little more when I under did it.  This glue is very forgiving.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic14

13.  Now place the Cover Button over the Round Faced Metal Pacifier Clips and straighten and center your button.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic15

14.  Press firmly and let set to dry and cure 24-72 hours as recommended by the manufacturer (E6000).

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic16

15.  These are my finished products.  I love them and think they turned out beautifully.  Below are my examples, completed and installed on Pacifier Clips.

16.  Tada!!!

Disclaimer:  Keep in mind that although I have rough tested these I in no way recommend you leave your baby alone with these as there are small pieces and if not done properly they may come apart and become a choking hazard.  I would recommend these clips under adult supervision only.  The maker and/or parent assumes full responsibility when using these pacifier clips.

cover-buttons-slide-show-pic_with-words_1

These aren't your grandma's Cover Buttons!!! Well actually they are ;) only better, with so many many great uses for them.

Flat Backs are used for crafts were you would like to glue a cover button: jewelry, bracelets, rings, earrings, necklaces, bobby pins and barrettes, scrap booking, and much more.

Wire Backs are used for fabric cover buttons in sewing, shoes, clothing, pony tail holders and much, much more.

Here are the 7 sizes we carry. From 1/2", which is about as small as your pinky nail, all the way up to 1 7/8" in diameter, about the size of the round side of a kiwi fruit. We carry them in both flat back (glueable) and wire back (sewable).

Assembling fabric Cover Buttons is fast and simple. In just seconds, you will have a button ready for your latest craft project.

See our pictorial below:

How to Make Fabric Cover Buttons:

Cover Buttons are easy to assemble:

  1. Cut your fabric scrap. You will want a circle that is about twice the diameter of your button blank.

Bandana Bib with KAM Snaps and a PDF Pattern by I Like Big Buttons! May 18 2017

Bandana Bib with KAM Snaps pic15

One of our most popular tutorials, Bandana Bibs are a great gift for those little droolers and mess makers in your life or as an outfit accessory. So cute!  I, also, used our Heart Shaped KAM Snaps for added pizazz, check it out!

Supplies:

Bandana Bib with KAM Snaps pic1

Instructions:

1.  Download the Bandana Bib PDF Pattern.  Print out the pattern making sure the 1″ square in the corner measures 1″ square when printed that will indicate the pattern is the right size.

Bandana Bib with KAM Snaps pic2

2.  Cut out the pattern.

Bandana Bib with KAM Snaps pic3

3.  Place your pattern, with long straight side on fabric folded in half, and pin in place.

Bandana Bib with KAM Snaps pic4

4.  Cut the 2 pieces of Fabric you will use.

Bandana Bib with KAM Snaps pic5

5.  Place Fabrics right sides together.

Bandana Bib with KAM Snaps pic6

6.  Pin together.

Bandana Bib with KAM Snaps pic7

7.  Sew pieces together with a 1/4" seam allowance, back stitching at the start  and finish of sewing, make sure to leave a 3-4" gap so that you can pull the piece right side out.

Bandana Bib with KAM Snaps pic8

8.  Pull piece right side out and make sure to push all the round and square corners out until they lay flat.

Bandana Bib with KAM Snaps pic9

9.  Fold in the opening's seams and pin in place.

Bandana Bib with KAM Snaps pic10

10.  Stitch a finish stitch 1/8" to 1/4" all the way around the bib, making sure to ease your way around the left and right tabs.  I do a couple stitches, stop, then lift the foot, turn the fabric slightly, put the foot down, and do a couple more stitches and repeat.  Make sure the back stitch at the beginning and end of your sewing.

Bandana Bib with KAM Snaps pic11

11.  Use the template to mark the KAM Snap placement, you many want to check the measurement of your child's neck and adjust the pattern or snap placement accordingly.  This bib worked for a toddler but with an extra set of snaps can work for more sizes.

Bandana Bib with KAM Snaps pic12

12.  I decided as I was getting ready to install the KAM Snaps to go with our new Heart Shaped snaps.  Install the Heart Shaped KAM Snap Cap and Stud in the left and a Cap and Socket on the right tab.

Bandana Bib with KAM Snaps pic14

13.  Interested in Heart Shaped KAM Snaps, check out our great 25 colors, in smaller package quantities for more great variety!

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-7

6.  Stitch along the edge of your Fabric strip, I stitched 1/4" in.  Remove the Sewing Clips as you go.  Work slowly, keeping close to the edge and as straight of a line as possible.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-8

7.  Repeat 1/4" stitching along the opposing edge.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-9

8.  Fold the Fabric Wristlet Strip in half, right sides facing out and match up the ends.

9. Stitch the ends together with a zig zag stitch.  I went back and forth a few times to insure it held.

10.  Trim any loose threads.  Use Fray Check to seal the end of the exposed Fabric edge.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-10

11.  Tuck the sewn seam ends into the Key Fob Hardware, making sure that the Fabric Wristlet is centered.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-11

12.  Using Key Fob Hardware Pliers squeeze the Key Fob Hardware closed with gentle pressure.  Sometimes, I go back and forth from left to right added a little bit of pressure to each side until it eases together.  Our Key Fob Hardware Pliers make this easy to do.

13.  Note the adjustable screw set to the distance I want the pliers to go to.

I Like Big Buttons! - How To Make A Fabric Cover Button Mini Clothespin May 03 2017

Today, I made an adorable office or home accent: Fabric Cover Button Mini Clothespins. I am absolutely in love with their bright colors and tininess!

Supplies:

  • 1 Completed Flat Back Fabric Cover Button (Attach size 20 (1/2" / 12 mm), size 24 (5/8" / 15 mm), or size 30 (3/4" / 19 mm) flat back cover buttons.)
  • 1x Mini Wooden Clothespin (Approximately 1 3/8" x 1/4" in size)
  • 1x Small Plain Button
  • E6000, Hot Glue, or comparable adhesive

I Like Big Buttons! - How To Make Fabric Cover Button Mini Clothespins Video

I Like Big Buttons! - Picture Tutorial Below:

1.  Cut your fabric scrap. You will want a circle that is about twice the diameter of your button blank. *TIP* Our All-In-One Cover Button Template makes creating the right size circle of fabric a breeze.

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. *TIP* To make it easier on my fingers, I use a sharpie marker to apply pressure.

5.  Place the back cover button piece on top of your fabric and button front. *TIP* 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. *TIP* I often use a flat piece of wood to apply pressure, again to save my fingers. It also helps to avoid the button back going in at an angle.

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! Now to attach it to the Clothespin.

11.  Use Hot Glue or E6000 to adhere a small plain button to the underside of the Cover Button. This is to fill the space between the back and the edges. You can also use felt or some other small object. You just need it to be sturdy enough to offer support. A small plastic button works great for this. You will see that the button is now flush across the bottom. I cut off the little nubs of glue that leaked through the button holes.

12.  Now adhere the finished Cover Button to the Clothespin. Press into place and center it until you are pleased with the alignment. Set aside to dry.

13. Tada! Additional uses:

  • Add a thin magnet to the back and use on your magnetic board.
  • Add a push pin to the back and use on your cork board.

I Like Big Buttons! How To Repair a Bra with KAM Plastic Snaps March 28 2017

Today, I tackled a problem for us moms out there.  Or at least ;) those of us too busy to fish our bras out of the washer before they go in the dryer.  In all fairness to my mom, she has told me a number of times, they will last longer and work better if I air dry them.  The fact remains that if I remember to get the laundry from the washer to the dryer in the same day, I consider it a miracle :).

Besides wearing them out quicker, I have found that front loading machines like to grab the bra hooks and mangle them.  I have grown tired of the hooks poking me in the back or not hooking at all anymore.

I have now modified all my bras, I find the KAM Snap closures easier to snap and release. Quicker to put on, quicker to get off with a good strong hold.

KAM Plastic Snaps to the rescue with a seam ripper and just a couple snaps... See the picture tutorial below.

Supplies:

KAM Snaps Bra Repair

KAM Snaps Bra Repair

1.  Use a Seam Ripper to remove the stitches holding the Bra hooks in place.

2.  Once the hooks are removed, use the Awl to poke a hole where you want to install the snap.  I used a KAM Snap Cap and Socket on this side.

3.  Install the snap.

4.  I put 2 sets on the back strap for size adjustment, you could do 3 if you wanted.   I used a 2 KAM Snap Caps and 2 Studs on this side, and spaced them evenly.

5.  Tada!  Success, I am wearing it as I type.  It is much more comfortable and it was easy to snap, I was concerned considering I had to do it by feel, but it was simple to do.

I Like Big Buttons! Cuff Bracelet with Upcycled Jeans and KAM Snaps February 21 2017

A continuing problem in my house is holey jeans. I keep thinking they might grow out of this particular feature, but just yesterday my middle son walked up to me and turned around. He laughed as he relayed how he fell, but caught himself on a cabinet. Which as he wiggled his fingers through the seat of his pants, had snagged his pants in the seat leaving a gaping hole. Oh bother! When he twisted back around, I couldn't help, but note that it wasn't these pair of jeans first or second hole. The knees were completely split out.

I gave him permission to make his stuffed animals outfits out of the jeans, one of his favorite past times. Another great project for unsalvageable jeans is a cute Upcycled Cuff Bracelet, see the details below.

I Like Big Buttons! Clearance Sale - Up to 50% Off January 22 2017

We had a SNOW DAY this week due to the ice storm that hit our area. My little buttons and I made good use of our free day and got some much needed spring cleaning done for the business.

In the process, I found quite a few pieces of discontinued or overstocked craft supplies. So, I listed them in our Clearance and Sale Items section on ILikeBigButtons.com. They are discounted up to 50% off for quick sale. Quantities Limited.

As my mom used to say and I find myself saying all the time now that I have a passel of kiddos, “When they’re gone, they’re gone.”
