Cute as a Button Bracelet Tutorial

Created by: Claudia Crosby

Designer Tips

  • Stretch and secure the bracelet ends to cardboard with tape. This prevents it from moving when gluing on the buttons.
  • Use heavy duty hardware store cutters to remove the button shanks. This will keep your jewelry cutters from becoming marred.
  • Sand or file smooth the backs of the buttons.
  • Rough up the surface of the bracelet pads with a file or sandpaper before applying glue.
  • Clean surfaces with alcohol before applying glue with a toothpick.
  • Add charms or dangles if desired.
