Hands-free Water Bottle Holder @ ILikeBigButtons.com June 11 2021

 

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.

Here is what you will need:

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.

 


The Anatomy Of A KAM Plastic Snap @ ILikeBigButtons.com January 07 2021

KAM plastic snaps are wonderful. They are a SNAP to install and much easier and durable than a standard metal snap or sewable button.  They come in a multitude of colors and sizes.  Which one is right for you?

Here is a simple tutorial on the anatomy of a plastic snap set. There are 4 parts to a set:

  • 2 Caps (Before installation they resemble a tack with a Round, Heart, or Star shaped head. They give a neat finished look to your snap.)
  • 1 Socket (The female part with the larger raised circle that the stud (male part) fits into)
  • 1 Stud (The male part with the smaller raised circle that fits inside the socket (female part))

SIZE 20:

  • Size 20 (0.5" - 12.4 mm) snaps can be used for most general projects like baby diapers and clothing. They are our most popular plastic snap size, have the largest color variety, and have a good strong hold. We carry them in all 130 colors and clear.
  • Standard Size 20 snaps have a 5.6mm prong length. Prong length refers to the length of the shaft on the backside of the Cap. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Socket or Stud together.
  • We also offer Long Prong Size 20 (0.5" - 12.4 mm) in a rainbow of colors. They are great for embroidered key fobs using Marine or Glitter Vinyl as well as other projects where you need just a little more prong length. Long Prong Size 20 snaps have a 6.2mm prong length.

 SIZE 16:

  • Size 16 (0.4" - 10.2 mm) snaps are most commonly used for baby and toddler clothing, pacifier clips, mama pads, and small crafts. We carry them in our first 60 ("B") colors and clear.
  • Size 16 snaps have a 4.2mm prong length. Prong length refers to the length of the shaft on the backside of the Cap. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Socket or Stud together.
  • The Size 16 Socket and Stud are less noticeably different. Many first time users don't immediately see the distinction. The Socket's raised circle is the larger of the two pictured, and the Stud's raised circle is smaller and inserts into the Socket (female) side.

SIZE 14:

  • Our Size 14 (0.35" - 9.7 mm) snaps can be used in most applications where Size 16 snaps are used. We carry them in White and Black at this time.
  • Our Size 14 snaps have a 5.0mm prong length. Prong length refers to the length of the shaft on the backside of the Cap. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Socket or Stud together.
  • As with the Size 16, the Size 14 Socket and Stud are less noticeably different. The Socket's circle is the larger of the two pictured.  The Stud's circle is smaller and inserts into the Socket (female) side. Size 16 and Size 14 Sockets and Studs are the same; only the cap differs.

SIZE 19:

  • Size 19 (0.475" - 12 mm) snaps are used for heavy-duty applications requiring a strong grip. They are often used with tote bags, coats, tarps, and upholstery. We carry them in White and Black at this time.
  • Size 19 snaps have a 6.9mm prong length. Prong length refers to the length of the shaft on the backside of the Cap. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Socket or Stud together.
  • The Size 19 Socket and Studs are larger, but similar in appearance to Size 20 Sockets and Studs.

SIZE 22:

  • Size 22 (0.55" - 14.1 mm) snaps are used for heavy-duty applications requiring a strong grip. They are often used with tote bags, coats, tarps, and upholstery. We carry them in White and Black at this time.
  • Size 22 snaps have a 6.9mm prong length. Prong length refers to the length of the shaft on the backside of the Cap. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Socket or Stud together.
  • The Size 22 Socket and Studs are larger, but similar in appearance to Size 20 Sockets and Studs.

Jean Pacifier Clip with Fabric Rosette November 16 2020

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/pages/pacifier-supplies
https://ilikebigbuttons.com/pages/pacifier-supplies

 

Supplies for a Recycled Jean Pacifier Clip with Fabric Rosette:

Instructions:

  1. Using an old, holey pair of Jeans cut two 1 1/2" x 14" strips of material.
  2. Use Sewing Clips to hold the material, wrong sides together, right sides facing out.
  3. Stitch around the strip of fabric about a 1/4 to 3/8" in all the way around making sure to backstitch at the start and end.
  4. Pull on the edges to fray the jean material up to the stitch you made.  I used a crafty child :) with a cutting board and a fork.  It will also fray over time but I was going for this look.
  5. To make the Fabric Rosette, fold the fabric in half, wrong sides together, two times.  You will end up with about 1/2" or less strip of fabric 24" long.  I used an iron to fold it, not so much that it was completely flat, just enough that it held its shape.  Start at one end and hot glue the first bit of it back against itself.
  6. Continue this ever so often so that the 'bud' stays together.
  7. Make the bud or center of the rose about 1/2" in diameter.  Add one last drop of hot glue.
  8. Now twist the fabric 360 degrees, so that the bottom becomes the top.  Tack it with a small bead of hot glue and repeat.
  9. Continue twisting and gluing until you run out of fabric or until you reach the desired size of your rosette.
  10. It will look like this when you are finished.
  11. Glue the last bit of fabric on the underside of the Rosette securely with hot glue.
  12. For a more finished look, I added a circle of felt to the bottom with Fabri-Tac.
  13. Put the KAM Plastic Pacifier Clip on the Fabric strip about 1″ in.
  14. Fold back 1″ of the strip back onto itself.
  15. Straight stitch across the fabric strip just behind the KAM Plastic Pacifier Clip.  Make sure to set the stitch.
  16. Make sure that the internal snap in a comfortable distance to accommodate the width of the handle, I spaced my KAM Snaps about 2″ apart using the Pacifier I have with the biggest handle.
  17. Now on the side where the Pacifier will be attached, I installed a Cap and Socket about 1/2″ from the edge.  I used Size 20 snaps for this tutorial but either Size 20 or Size 16 will work great.
  18. Add Fabric Rosette with Fabri-Tac to the Pacifier Clip just above the clip.
  19. Now snap the Pacifier in place, attach to your child’s outfit and go.
  20. Tada!  Okay, I think I am in love.  Super cute!  Happy Snapping!!!  To see our other great Pacifier Clip Tutorial and KAM Plastic Snap Ideas and buy these supplies visit I Like Big Buttons.com.

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.
