Step 1: Choosing and Cutting Your Image

Once you chose your image (you can print it) trace a circle around the image and cut the circle out. You can use scissors or a cutting utensil of your choice.

Step 2: Putting the Paper Into the Button

Once you have your circle cut out, you are going to place the metal into the base mold on the left. After the metal is placed you are going to put the picture on top of the metal and then place the plastic film over the image. Once you have done so you slide the left base mold over to the right and press down on the lever, not hard but enough so it is pressed all the way. Once you are done pressing, bring the lever back up to the normal position. Insert the button backing into the right backing.

Step 3: You're Done!
