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 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:

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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)
