Default Attaching a not so flat back

button to a bobby pin

I removed the shank from my button - but it's still not flat and I have a Bobby Pin with 10 mm Round Pad. I'm going to E6000 glue it but don't feel button will stick well. What do you ladies suggest?

BTW - here is a pic of button - don't think felt will work because it will be seen from under....

It is - 15363 Pearl Daisy Button

Any words of advice? It's communion and confirmation time so thought these would be perfect.

Is it plastic? I know some ladies use their wood burners to burn them down. I use a nail file on the back of the dress it up buttons (the ones from michaels). I think I would use felt after getting the button as flat as I can just so it looks neater.

It's metal.

Use a shank remover like regularly would,
then file it down with a heavy file or sometimes a metal nail file works. Then you can e6000 them to the pin

I have been burning the not so flat ones and then filing. Sometimes I can't do that so I attach some felt (Same size as the button bottom just trim it so you can't tell) then I glue the button to the felt and the felt to the bobby pin. I then sew the felt around the bobby pin a few times. (Just stick your needle in a tiny corner piece of felt).

It sounds complicated but it's not, I promise!
