    Snicker Caramel Apple Salad by ILikeBigButtons.com October 14 2022

    Happy National Dessert Day! What is your favorite dessert? 

    During the fall and apple picking season, Snicker Apple Salad is my go-to dessert. It never disappoints, and it is technically labeled a "Salad" so that means it's a little better for you, right!?! 😜

    A great dessert salad that combines so many amazing flavors and textures!

    Ingredients

    • 6 regular size Snickers Candy Bars
    • 4 medium apples (I use Granny Smiths or Pink Ladies. The tanginess is a good contrast to the sweetness of everything else.)
    • 1 (5.1 oz.) package Vanilla Instant Pudding (dry, do not prepare)
    • 1/2 cup milk (optional, half the time I skipped this part and just mixed the dry pudding into the cool whip)
    • 1 (16 oz.) tub cool whip (thawed to room temperature)
    • 1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping


    Instructions

    1. Whisk vanilla pudding packet, 1/2 cup milk (optional) and cool whip together until well combined.
    2. Chop up apples and Snickers into bite size pieces.
    3. Stir chopped apples and Snickers into pudding mixture.
    4. Place in a large bowl and drizzle with caramel ice cream topping.
    5. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving. Or eat right away if you are impatient like me. :)

    How-To Alter a Halter Top Swimsuit with KAM Plastic Snaps July 27 2022

    We bought this cute swimsuit for my daughter a little while ago. The swimsuit is totally adorable, but both she and I felt it tended to slip a little too far down in the front as the day went along. KAM plastic snaps to the rescue! We turned her halter top swimsuit into a standard strapped swimsuit in just a few seconds with KAM plastic snaps.

    Supplies:

    (Original Halter Top - Back Style)

    First, we decided that we wanted the ends to crisscross and tuck into the back of the swimsuit, to give the illusion that the straps were sewn in place. We also wanted to leave to halter top feature in case she wanted to wear the straps tied up when sunbathing.  

    We used G100 - Marina (Blue) to coordinate with the swimsuit's warm sea blue color. Because we wanted the straps to tuck into the suit, we installed the KAM snap Cap and Socket on the back of the swimsuit with the Cap facing out. We, then, installed the KAM snap Cap and Stud on the swimsuit strap so that the Stud faced out.

    Then we simply crisscrossed the straps and snapped them in place. It's a snap!

    We are pleased with how it turned out. It looks like it was always meant to be a strapped swimsuit and it can easily be converted back into a halter top at a moments notice.

    Tada! Time to go lounge at the swimming pool!

    I Like Big Buttons! Family Vacation 2022 July 20 2022

    Our I Like Big Buttons! family is going on vacation. 

    It's that time of year where we push PAUSE for a week, so that we can spend some real time with our kids outside of the I Like Big Buttons! business routine. A few days where the business doesn't consume our time and energies.

    So here's the heads up, if you have been putting off an order, now is the time to make it. We will be accepting orders and shipping until July 29th at 3pm PT and won't reopen until August 9th. Any and all orders made between the evening of July 29th through August 9th will ship out August 10th.

    We also will be off Social Media and out of internet range for most of the week, meaning any product or order questions you have won't be answered until we return on August 9th, as we will be enjoying quality time with our family.

    Thank you for understanding as we give our patient kiddos some much deserved Dad/Mom attention and time.

    Thank you for  your understanding.  - I Like Big Buttons! Family

    How-To: Magnetic Pin Cushion/Needle Holder July 13 2022

    Supplies:

    • 1 Completed Size 75 (1 7/8 inch / 48 mm) Fabric Cover Button
    • Fabric Of Your Choice
    • 1x Standard Round Magnet (Approximately 3/4" Round)
    • 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. 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.
