Default Re: How to use Rhinestone buttons??

I got a pair of "flush cutters" from wal-mart. It was about $4 or $5 and some change. I LOVE them! The buttons shanks come right off. I also use them when I cut the tails off my zip ties...I get a very flush cut with no pokey ends that could scratch. I have to get a second pair to keep in my craft show tool box! Well worth the price.

What section of Wal-mart? I am wondering if Target would have that too? I am going out in a bit and would pick this up today. I am excited to work with all my buttons now! Thanks everyone for your input. SOOOO helpful!

I totally meant to say what section but I got so excited about sharing how they great they are! lol They were in the craft section on the jewlery aisle. There were a bunch tools there and these are labeled "flush cutters." hth! Oh and Target won't have them as they don't have a crafting section. Well, mine doesn't anyway. Have fun with your buttons!

Oh and I wanted to add that the metals shanks may take a bit of muscle to get off but you will get a nice flat back. The plastic shanks come off like butter! So easy.

I use scissors to cut the shank off when I'm adding them to flowers, it's always worked ok for me. When I add them to bows, I leave the shank on and thread through the shank, then cover w/ 3/8 ribbon when I wrap the center.

If you have a little bit of rough plastic sticking out after you cut it off, you can file it down with a rough fingernail file.

I have done this a few times and it works. I use pliers to remove the shanks

I've used these types of buttons a couple of times and I sewed them on. I suppose it might look better if the shank was removed and they were glued on but I didn't quite trust the glue to hold them.
