just wondering how people attach flair to their pages? I've only just bought my first pack and can't believe how deep the back is on them. I was hoping to just use a bit of foam tape (foam squares) behind them - but ended up having to put three layers! Two wasn't enough to touch the page from under the badge, and then three actually lifted it off the page - which I didn't really want to happen - they are high enough. So just wondering if there is a better sized product for them? This may have been on the boards before if so I'm sorry I missed it.

i used to have the same issue, having to put at least 2 layers of foam. i only buy my flairs from A Flair for buttons on Etsy now(which are also available here on Two Peas) and she offers various kind of backing, including one called flat back which is perfect if you don't wanna add foam. All you need is add some glue tape.

I just got some of the pennys flair from a few sweet peas so I have not used them before. But will check out A Flair for buttons on Etsy, thank you for the heads up

Perhaps you could use hot glue?

I use foam dots or i put a litle bit of glossy accents around the edge and adhere it that way- nothing comes off when using glossy accents

I crushed the pins on a couple of the JCP flair buttons so that they would lay flat with just a couple of foam squares on back. Some people have said that they removed the pin backing. Have yet to try that.

I too am a huge A Flair for Buttons fan. I use 2 pop up glue dots on the bottom of mine & they stick great.

Ohhh, love the use of Glossy Accents around the edges. Never thought of that. I just use the foam dots.

I love {a flair for buttons} flair too and do the same thing as Megan. {a flair for buttons} offers flat backs too and I use regular glue dots for those.

Thank you ladies for all the replies and suggestions. I'll have to try the glossy accents and may look up the flat backed ones. Do they ship internationally?

when using JCP flair I pulled the pins out of the back (they'll come out if you can kind of straighten them and then wiggle them out), then put two glue dots right on the lip of the button, where it sort of curls under. So far it's working well.
