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!

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! - 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.

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.

    30 Days of KAM Snaps and Beyond!!! How to make Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips with Cover Buttons, Round Faced Metal Suspender Clips and KAM Snaps September 24 2014

    Day #35

    How to make a Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips with Cover Buttons, Round Faced Metal Suspender Clips and KAM Snaps

    Today I am making Cover Button Pacifier Clips using Round Faced Metal Pacifier Clips (Metal Suspender Clips), Size 36 Cover Buttons, and KAM Snaps, of course ;).  I have had a lot of questions in the last year about how to make these clips so I decided to take it on.  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.

    That being said I did rough test these and was unable to break them apart after they had proper time to dry and cure.  I didn't take a hammer to them :) but I did my best to undo my hard work and was not able to.

    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.

    Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic3

    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.

    Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic6

    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.

    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 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.

    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.
