How and When to Use KAM Snaps!

I get a lot of questions about using KAM snaps…How and When to Use KAM Snaps and Where to Buy Them.

So today I have an entire post dedicated to KAM snaps to help you get started!

My go-to source for KAM snaps is I Like Big Buttons. They have super speedy shipping, the color charts are easy to use and make ordering a breeze, and the pricing is great.

I’ve ordered from them in the past and I Like Big Buttons was also kind enough to send me their awesome Starter Pack to review! For just $20 (plus shipping which I found quite reasonable) you get the pliers, 100 sets of snaps and a short how-to video. ย The video includes everything you need to know about installing the snaps and getting them back out if you make a mistake. It’s the perfect way to get started ๐Ÿ™‚

In the past I had been using my Babyville pliers with my KAM snaps. It worked decently but now that I have the real deal I am in love! So much easier to use! The overall quality of the KAM pliers and snaps is much better than Babyville in my opinion. I did a full comparison on all the options for snaps and why I prefer KAM here. With a new baby in the house I am finding lots of opportunities to use my snaps ๐Ÿ™‚

Really anywhere you can use a button you can use a snap instead. Just like with your buttons make sure you add interfacing so the snaps don’t tear or stress the fabric. Seen here on the V-Neck Cardigan


Snaps or so much easier than sewing buttonholes and with all of the color options it’s easy to get a perfect match. Seen here on the Lullaby Line Bodysuit

I used some fun teal snaps to complete my Ultimate Baby Bibย from yesterday’s post. KAM snaps are perfect for bibs! So easy to use and un-like velcro they don’t get dirty and gross.

Need more ideas of what to use your snaps on? I’ve also used them on pj tops, button-up shirts, dresses, the inseam of rompers, overalls straps, and pacifier clips. I use them ALL the time ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Just in case I don’t win, I ordered the starter kit on I Like Big Buttons. If I do win, I can always give it to my daughter.

  2. I don’t quality either. I’d love to be the lucky one to receive these BUT I live in Canada. Great review.

  3. Cannot wait to try the snaps. I have never, never been able to use a tool to put in a snap can sew in the tiny clear plastic snaps.

  4. I love their website! After clicking on the contest link I almost forgot why/how I got there. So many different things to check out.

  5. Thanks so much! I’ve been wanting a pair of snap pliers! And thanks for the link to their shop, I need some fabric covered buttons for a project, and have been looking for somewhere to buy more than 4 at a time!

  6. Oh my gosh! I would love to win these! I have been dying to get my hands on them for awhile now. And thanks for the link to the button store. They have the key fob things I have been looking for and those awesome buttons you can cover with your own fabric! Both things I hadn’t been able to find for decent prices. You rock!

        1. Oh no, my comprehension skills are down this morning (and I haven’t had any coffee yet) and I entered before I saw the US only. Please disregard my entry
