Default Got my buttons today...

I got the buttons I ordered the other day, and they are so cute. I have ANOTHER question about them, though. They still have a metal piece, the shank?, sticking out the back. How do I get that off to put on clips? As centerpieces I don't think it will matter b/c I sew them on anyway, but didn't know how to just stick them on a clip.

Also, how do you attach bottle caps to clips? I have used E6000 and my glue gun, and they still come off. Any tips there?

Thanks so much ladies!

Use a wire cutter to cut the shank. Make sure you cut before you push/snap the button cover into the button.

they are already covered and made up? I probally messed up when I ordered them

I got them off etsy from buttered parsnips? I have never bought them before and so I'm not sure if her prices are good or not.

I've been making the same bows forever it seems, and wanted to change things up a bit. Now I think I should have stuck with what I know!
