Materials Used

Scissors
Fabric
Earring Posts and Backs
Glue (I use E6000 but any jewelry glue will work)

Tutorial Directions

Step by Step tutorial Fabric Button Earrings

Center the fabric that you want shown on your earring in the center of the circle template.

Cut out two circles from the fabric.

Grab your fabric and the button top. Put the button front in the middle of the fabric and grab the rubber holder.

Push the fabric with the button top into the rubber holder.

Tuck all the fabric into the holder.

Place the button back onto the tucked fabric in the rubber holder.

Grab the glue and the earring posts. Glue them on and let them dry.

If your button package comes with the button backs with the loop on them to sew onto clothing just pop it off with pliers or cut with wire cutters.. your earring posts will cover the holes that it makes.

I usually leave mine to dry for a few hours but it will depend on the glue that you use.
