Smile Fabric buttons on bobby pins?

I've been googling my little fingers off and can't find a tut for this ANYWHERE!!! I found the tut below, but it describes attaching them to pony Os and snap clips.

1) What is a shank? Part of the button obviously... but since I haven't worked with the buttons yet I'm having a hard time getting a visual.
2) How would I go about attaching fabric covered buttons to bobby pins? E6000 glue just like attaching it to a snap clip?

Here's the tut I managed to find. I found another one yesterday, but can't find it again. It's here somewhere... but I read so much information on here yesterday that I don't recall exactly where it is!


I'm going shopping on my lunch break, so I hope to hear back from you ladies soon!

I got some of these in a swap and they make it super easy! You just take the shank (it's the loop on the back of the button) off with a pliers and use E6000 to glue your button on.

Etsy :: deby0 :: 48 blank bobby pins

If the link doesn't work search for "bobby pin blank" on etsy. (I think there are some on ebay too.)

Thank goodness you posted the pic of the bobby pin with the blank disc... I'd be sitting at home trying to glue a big button onto a skinny little bobby pin lol!!!

There is a tutorail on etsy that includes the covered button bobby pins.
The seller name is heatherknitz.
I purchased another tutorial that included only the ponytails and snap clips and wish I had found this one first.
Hope this helps!
