Default How do you make these vintage buttons

I just purchased some vintage clipart and would like to make these for myself and gifts for Christmas....but can't figure it out!

Etsy :: Vintagelucys :: VINTAGE HULA AND KITTY - Set of 2 button hair clippies

I would say them are printed from digital art but do I print on fabric or paper?? I thought perhaps they are made the same way as bottlecaps since it looks like paper but how do i get the paper so nice and flat around the button?

Those just look like the fabric covered buttons to me. They sell the kits to cover buttons at JoAnn's. You just cover them with fabric & pop the back in them & glue them on to what you want. I think some people use a rivet gun type thing to attach theirs but I don't know anything about them.
I spraypaint mine first so the shiny metal doesn't show through.
Printed foe & specialty ribbon buys done here!!

Thank you. I never thought to spray paint them first. I've been adding alittle bit of cotton instead.
