Step 2: Here's What You Need
Pick your lid (or flat bottom bowl) for your button mold
With a craft knife, score the inside of the small lids and the area where they will be glued on the lid
Scoring (scratching) your surface will help the glue stick better
Fill the caps to the rim with hot glue and glue them in place on the lid
After the glue has dried, spray the mold with non-stick cooking spray
Mix enough rapid-set cement to fill your mold. Follow the instructions on the box
Fill the mold and allow to cure.
Rapid set cement sets in about 20 minutes!
Remove your cement button
