Default Covered Button Help

I've just started using covered buttons/brads in my bows. I'm not exactly sure I'm doing it correctly. Here are my questions:
If covering a button in paper, do you need to go over it with a modge podge or paper glaze?

I'm worried about the button pulling apart (like when its attached to an elastic band), should I be using some glue to be sure it all stays together?

Thanks in advance!

I've never used paper either, just fabric.
If you are putting them together correctly with the tool that comes with them, you shouldn't have a problem with them coming apart when attached to a pony. Make them all the time and it hasn't happened yet.

I've never used paper either. Seems paper wouldn't look right as it would crease funny. If you did figure out how to use paper and it doesn't crease weird or tear as you do the button, I'd say you should cover it with something to keep it from tearing once little hands handle it a few times. I bet modge podge or whatever you use to cover bottlecaps would work.
I've never done it... but maybe it could work.

Is there a reason you use paper instead of fabric, just wondering?

I'm not sure why I thought you could use paper too. There are so many pretty fabrics, but there are also so many pretty papers out there too. I thought it would increase variety if you could use both.
