1. If you are using your own fabric follow these instructions, otherwise if using some precut fabric go to step 2. Place template on fabric, print side up. Trace around clear template after positioning the print you require in the middle window of the template. Cut around your circle.
2. Place clear tool base on a firm surface.
3. Turn over print side of fabric circle so it is positioned down and put on top of base (ensure any fabric which has a print you want centered is positioned in middle of base)
4. Place aluminum button shell over fabric and push into the tool base.
5. When you have ensured the fabric is in the correct position, fold edges of fabric into middle of button, using sharp scissors trim excess fabric if need be, (ensuring there is enough fabric to fold in, but not too much that the back wont snap in)
6. Make sure no fabric is hanging out, place button back into shell (with shank side sticking out!) Using the blue pusher, push firmly onto back of button until back “pops” into place. (If using flat backs, the sharp edge must point upwards)
7. Button is complete!! Well done!!
