Button Enclosure Conversion to Sweatpants Pocket with KAM Plastic Snaps @ ILikeBigButtons.com July 02 2021

I love my slouchy sweatpants for getting work done around the house, but their comfortable pockets are useless when for holding onto my phone when I am active. KAM plastic snaps to the rescue! I turned my useless slouchy pocket into a secure button enclosed, phone holding pocket in just a few seconds with KAM plastic snaps.

Supplies:

I used some fun colored snaps from the KAM plastic snaps Grab Bag making bucket. 

Easy peasy, I wore my phone around all day while I cleaned and worked. It was secure the whole time and with a quick unsnapping on hand when I needed it. KAM plastic snaps are the BEST! 

Tada! I can now get my list of projects done without fearing my phone will take a tumble from my pocket while I am moving.

My oldest is headed off on a class trip to Silverwood Theme Park. Rollercoaster rides, caramel apples, sunshine, and lots of laughter. A hands-free Water Bottle, so she can keep moving and not worry about keeping hydrated, is a must.

I made a couple of quick water bottle holders from ILikeBigButtons.com craft supplies.

Long Prong vs Standard Prong Customer Review @ ILikeBigButtons.com April 06 2021

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

LOVE these long prong KAM buttons. They work wonders with thicker fabric, such as double layer leather like fabric you often use in projects like “hand sanitizer bottle holders”, “key fogs “, and others .
Until I bought these I had managed to press the standard size 20 prong length Kam snaps in by carefully cutting a layer out (a small circle) using sharp manicure scissors -but it was far from ideal.
Now I simply use these size 20 LONGER prong buttons with leather like double layer fabrics, so much neater!!
DELIVERY was very fast & CUSTOMER support is excellent.
Highly recommend this product & this seller. Won’t hesitate to buy more here.
-- Rejane

❤ this review! It is very detailed. Rejane even took the time to include a picture of the way she used to work around when using Standard Prong on thicker material versus how easy and clean it looks using Long Prong on her project. Thank you, Rejane, for the thoughtful review and share!

KAM Plastic Snap Removal Pliers @ ILikeBigButtons.com March 24 2021



 

KAM Plastic Snap Removal Pliers may be my favorite tool. They make removing a broken or miss-set snap a breeze. (See video below for demonstration.)

Only $19.95 (Originally $29.95)

No Coupon Necessary (Good thru 3/31/21)

These pliers are the most effective and simplest way to remove a snap. They are gentle on the fabric. Only the hole from the removed prong remains. They also in many cases leave the socket or stud intact and reusable.

KAM Plastic Snap Removal Pliers:

  • KAM Plastic Snap Removal Pliers
  • Size 20 Socket Removal Die (works fine with Size 14, 16, and 19)
  • Size 20 Stud Removal Die (works fine with Size 14, 16, and 19)
  • Additional Rubber Head
  • Screwdriver (for changing removal dies)

If you need to remove a plastic snap, this is by far the easiest means for removing it.  If you would prefer to remove a snap with tools you may already have, we do have videos on how to do that here.

Making a Fabric Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clip @ ILikeBigButtons.com February 26 2021

 

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Using our Pacifier Clip and Supply Tutorials make either Ribbon or Fabric Pacifier Clips.
  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.
  5. Add a dab of E6000 Adhesive to the middle of the cover button cap before installing the Flat Back.
  6. Place the back cover button piece on top of your fabric and button front.
  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.
  9. When you take the small assembly tool piece off, the fabric edges will be secured underneath the button back.
  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.
  11. Here are the Cover Buttons I made in just a few minutes.  Seriously easy, fun and so cute!
  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.
  13. Now place the Cover Button over the Round Faced Metal Pacifier Clips and straighten and center your button.
  14. Press firmly and let set to dry and cure 24-72 hours as recommended by the manufacturer (E6000).
  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.

K1 KAM Plastic Snap Pliers Versus K2 ILBB Plastic Snap Pliers January 08 2021

We get a lot of questions about the difference between K1 and K2 plastic snap pliers. Both K1 and K2 pliers work great for applying plastic snaps. They are lightweight, portable, and easy to use.

The K1 pliers are KAM® branded pliers, the same quality brand as the snaps we carry. They come with four (4) dies:

The K2 pliers are manufactured for our I Like Big Buttons!® brand. They are a more economical option for those who aren't looking to do all that many snaps. They come with three (3) dies:

K1 are sturdier and have more robust dies than K2. If you are just doing a few snaps, the K2 is not a bad choice, and some people like them better for Size 16 snaps. The K1 pliers do a nicer job on Size 20 snaps and work great on Size 16.

K1 pliers form the snaps creating a small rounded dome in the socket and stud center. K2 pliers form more of a flat pancake with a bullseye impression that some like for Size 16 snaps, as it can make them snap together a little easier.

If grip strength is an issue, K2 pliers require less force to sufficiently set snaps.

In general, we recommend K1 over K2, but both work great.
