Re: Bum Genius snap conversion tutorial

First off I wanted to say THANK YOU! for this tutorial. I am so sick of nasty velcro! I also thought I would share for those I've seen asking...you can do cross over snaps for BGs. This is how I did mine. Mind you I did 2 rows of snaps so therefore I needed 3 snaps on the tabs but this is how it looks and it works great. I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures. They were taken on my phone



and here they are crossed over

This tutorial is awesome! I cannot wait to get my press in the mail and get started!
KAM now has matching colors. I got my snaps in the mail today and they're identical or extraordinarily close to the snaps already on the dipes. I have every color except the pinks.

I LOVE the BG snap colors. They are so pretty! I use them even for my non-BG dipes.

Re: Bum Genius snap conversion tutorial

Wow this is handy!! Great job OP_ your dipe looks wonderful! I have a couple questions:

Is this something even a non-crafty person like myself can do with the necessary supplies?
Can you do snap conversions on other things too like BSB covers?
Also, has anyone done two rows of snaps instead? I like the look of two rows and they fit better for us, but unsure of how that would work? If anyone has a pic available of a double row conversion, may I see it?

Thanks!
