KAM Snaps and Crafts: Cover Button Kits

We have recently expanded our inventory to carry Cover Button Kits.  They drew our eye because of their versatility.  They aren't your grandma's fabric covered buttons.  Cover buttons can still be used to for clothing but the creative uses are almost endless . . . Add them to the ends of Bobby Pins or hair ties to create accents for your hairdo.  Add them to Jumbo Paper Clips to create an attractive bookmark for your favorite book.  Add them to Badge Reels and attach your work ID for an attractive alternative to simply clipping your ID to your shirt.  These are just a couple ideas in a long list of creative uses.

We carry them in many sizes in both Flat back and Wire/Shank back:

* Size 20 (1/2 inch)
* Size 24 (5/8 inch)
* Size 30 (3/4 inch)
* Size 36 (7/8 inch)
* Size 45 (1 1/8 inch)
* Size 60 (1 1/2 inch)
* Size 75 (1 7/8 inch)

Here is one of our popular listings:

Welcome to Gotlux a distributor of KAM Snaps and other great crafting supplies

I grew up as many of you probably did, crafting with anything I could get my hands on from twigs to the pansies in my momma's borders. Now I am raising my own children and watching them create little figurines out of twigs and weeds and turn paper in to confetti. If you walked through my house on any given day, you might mistake it for an exploded confetti factory. Bits of paper and imagination everywhere!!! Since I am up to my elbows in diapers and crafts, I thought why not sell crafty things.

Plastic snaps caught my eye first. My husband is the creator of the GotLux Professional Photographic Lighting Accessories and he uses these very snaps in the upcoming Pro and ProX models. The colors and usefulness of them drew me to them and so I researched them. I discovered the many varied ways they can be used and I was hooked.

So here I am selling snaps and many other craft items sure that you find as much joy in crafting with them as I am. Thank you for warmly welcoming me to eBay, Etsy and Amazon and I hope for a long and joy filled run with you.
