Please go through the tutorial before you get started.
Here we go....
Step 1 - Mark on the fabric where you want a hole on it (pls put a wooden board at the below to protect your table surface. Otherwise, your table will get a hole). Use Tool A and a hammer to make the hole.
Step 2 - Put the snap button set 1 (above) through the hole like the above photo.
Step 3 - Turn over the fabric to the other side and put the snap button set 1 (below) on top of snap button set 1 (above) like the above photo. Prepare Tool B and hammer.
Step 4 - Put the Tool B on top of snap button set 1 (below) and hold the Tool B straight up (90 degree) and hammer it. Remember to put a piece of cloth on the below when hammering in order to protect your button. You can hammer it until you get the below result (click the photo for bigger view for the inner)
This is what you get after a bit of hammering with Tool B.
Step 5 - Adjust and mark the other side of fabric (align with snap button set 1) and make a hole with Tool A and hammer. See the hole as below photo.
Step 6 - Get the snap button snap 2 (below) and insert it from the below fabric as per below photo. That's right. That is Nicky's chubby hand. LOL...
Step 7 - Get the snap button set 2 (above) and cover the snap button set 2 (below) like the photo. Ready Tool C and hammer.
Step 8 - Hold Tool C straight up (90 degree) and hammer it until you get the result. Make sure they fit tightly. If you see it still loose, hammer again. Remember to hold the Tool straight while hammering. Otherwise, you will ruin the button!
This is what I use during hammering to protect my button. Did you see a hole on it. Nicky hammered too strong with Tool A until went through it. Be careful with your table coz it might get a hole too. Better to use wooden board instead of steel below when you make the hole with Tool A. Otherwise, you will ruin your tool.
Tadaa... See, the result? Ok or not? ^^
This is the finished wallet. What do you think? I like the button the most. Hahaha
