I have a few of those buttons from JCP and I'm having a hard time removing the pin from the back to use on my layout. How is everyone getting this off without jabbing yourself with that pin? Surely there's a trick to this but I'm just not figuring it out.

I have a tool used for removing the shank off buttons and I cut the pin. Then I grasp it with the cutters & pull it out.
I am sure you could use wire cutters for this. If you are married,ask your DH or have tools look for something there.

I pop the whole metal back off with a Kraft knife tip. Comes off easily for me.

Thanks, the wire cutters are working. I wasn't prepared for it the first time, and a piece of it flew off and I have no idea where it landed. I hope I can find it before my bare foot does. The other ones I did inside a box.

I just bent the sharp end back and forth until it broken, then I pulled the other side out.

Another wire cutter user here...had same experience with flying pieces! Thankfully I found it before my husband or I stepped on it!

I carry a little swiss army knife and just slip the tip under the backing at the edge and popped it free of the top. After I remove the pin apparatus, I replace the back as a place to put a foam adhesive square.
