They look much more interesting than plastic buttons! How strong is the back and did you use super-duper strong glue to hold them on?

I find I often lose things that aren't pinned on too well or that the back is glued on too weakly.  Cry

i just used a hot glue gun so we will see how they stay on.  i also used those pin backings that you have to turn the little thingy to get the pin to come out so they are pretty secure.  thanks for all the other comments by the way.  i can't wait to make more Smiley

that ought to work... i think.

just curious, has anybody tried this with e6000 instead, and are there any opinions which would be better?

i guess the advantage of the hotglue is it is harder to poison yourself with the fumes of it (you don't need to use that with ventilation, right?  i have one but i have not used it yet)...

I to love these little things, but could not afford to buy. So I took old buttons and a bottle of Royal Coat Dimensional magic and cut out old pictures of my family and put a coat of the goo on top and then drilled holes in the sides for either jewelry making or jump rings or sew straight to  fabric or whatever.

Why spend $300 on a button maker when it's just gonna break in a month or two? If you use them enough, they WILL break. I think they're awesome. Is that Siouxsie Sioux I see mixed in there?
