How to apply Swarovski Elements Decorative Buttons
Decorative buttons are a fun and easy way to add bling to all of your designs. They aren't actual closures, but they make great embellishments! This handy tip will show you how to use the appropriate die sets with the crystal applicator tool to attach decorative buttons to clothing, jewelry and more!
To attach decorative buttons to your designs, you will only need to use the front part of the snap fastener die set (TOOL-0047). These components should come in a bag labeled SN001F.
Adjust the stroke adjustment screw to allow the upper die to meet up with the lower die when the tool is squeezed.
Attach the dies to the tool. The part with the screw should be placed in the upper die holder. Tighten the screw to ensure the upper die stays attached to the holder. Attach the lower die to the lower die holder and adjust the small screw on the lower die holder to ensure that the lower die also stays in place.
Place the front of the decorative button face down into the lower die.
Place the back side of the decorative button into the upper die. It should click into place.
Position your fabric between the two dies so you can attach the button where you want it. Make sure you are punching on the right side of the fabric. Squeeze the crystal applicator tool to attach the button.
You have now attached a decorative button to your design!
