Default How do you attach a covered button to an alligator clip?

I would like to attach fabric covered buttons to an alligator clip.

How do I do this, considering the back is basically hollow?

I feel like I must be missing something

Thank you so much,

Kimberly

The back ends up being pretty flat actually. you could fill it with a piece of felt or glue & then glue to the clip.

Hmmm, good question! Do the fabric buttons have a tiny loop on them to sew onto things, so how do you get it flat on the clips? IF they are plastic you could snip them off, but if metal?

Those are super cute!!!

They have a metal thing but you can pop it out/off pretty easily.
