Take off the loop on the back and hot glue them to the top of ribbon covered alligator clips. These are 7/8" buttons.
Take off the loop on the back and hot glue them to earring posts. You can use any size button, but these in the picture are 1/2".
Leave the loop on the back on and loop a hair tie through it on each end. These are 7/8" buttons.
Pretty Thumb Tacks
Take the loop off the back and hot glue a flat head thumb tack in them. These are 1/2" buttons.
Here they are in use, ahhh, so cute!
Use them for their intended purpose: as actual buttons. Liven up an old cardigan by adding some cute new buttons. Make sure that the button size you choose will fit through the existing button hole.
Here's a before picture (it's a rather unfortunately boxy cardi).
Here's the after on me (looking rather well endowed if I do say so my self. Too bad the girls have shrunk a bit since I've lost weight).
What are some fun ways that you guys have used covered buttons?
There are instructions on the packet you get at the store, but I already took the pictures, so here you go!
Optional: If you're going to need to take the loop in the back off, do so first thing. Take a pair of flat nosed pliers and squeeze the loop closed and it should just pop off the backing. I've heard that you can buy buttons with the backs already off, but they don't sell them at my store.
You're all done! Make sure that none of the edges are coming out from behind the backing. The first on is kind of hard, but then they're a piece of cake!
