Default How to use Rhinestone buttons??

This is kind of embarrassing for me to ask. I have been in a bunch of buys for beautiful rhinestone buttons ( I have TONS now) but I have no idea how to use them. I mean, I know where I'd LIKE to use them, but I don't know how to get that loop thing off the back, or if it is even removable. Are they supposed to be sewn on? I just have no idea! Can anyone help? Thank you!

I use a pair of old small scissors and it breaks the backs off.

For the plastic ones, I use my wood burner. For the metal ones, I use a pair of fingernail clippers. Scissors don't work that well for me.

I have them from several GB's by Just Daisy, and a ton from Ashley's button buy. She's doing another now if you need some. Here is the link: Victorian Button Buy.

I just use a small pair of wire cutters and remove the back. That way they lay flat and look fabulous with a bit of extra fluff glued on the bottom of the feather pads.

Someone just clued me in that Harbor Freight has cutter for $1.99!! I've been using jewelry cutter from Hobby Lobby but they were 40% off of $8.99. I'm going to check out the Harbor Freight ones! Scissors work, but don't give a flush cut back and dull the scissors.
