Default Re: How to use Rhinestone buttons??

When I need to remove the shank, I use a shank remover that I got at Joannes, and then I use E6000 to adhere them. Generally, though, I leave on the shanks and sew them. For some reason, I prefer sewing to using stinky E6000!

That's the glory of the jewelry cutters or the micro flush cutters, I've never had ANY residual shank left! LOVE them!

I used to do that before I found the flush cutters!

I have hot glued THOUSANDS of these and not had a one come off yet.

I use hot glue after the shank is removed. I've never had any come off.

This is probably not the recommended way, but on the plastic ones I just use my wood burning tool and melt those pesky guys off. It takes two second and leaves a perfectly flat back.

I do hold the button with a pliers as they do get hot as you do this.

I use a pair of wire clippers and clip it off and then burn off anything left for a smooth back.

While I am definitely getting "flush cutters" I did use my wood burner on a plastic one yesterday and it worked perfectly! I wish I had asked a lot sooner. I just used my FIRST rhinestone button!!

I have issues with my hot glue holding heavy things, sometimes, so I'm worried the metal buttons would fall off, hence the E6000. I probably just need to suck it up and get a better glue gun!
