How to Make a Button Advent Calendarcomments (9) November 30th, 2012
Keep two sheets of corrugated cardboard or a styrofoam block handy while you glue. Stick each completed button tack into it, and use that surface to gauge whether your buttons are tipping over. (Be careful, though-if you use too much E-6000, you can end up gluing your buttons right to your drying surface!)
E-6000 needs at least 10 minutes to cure, so check the buttons frequently during that time-they may tip over a little, and you'll need to gently readjust them so they're flat. They'll stay that way once the glue cures.
Allow the E-6000 to dry for 24 hours before you handle the buttons.

I'm using embossed felt here, but you could also use wool felt in any color, glitter felt, or patterned felt.
