You can make snap on ties to attach toys etc to pushchairs, car seat straps etc.

I found a new use for my snap press this week, DS1 came home from school with a broken strap on his roman sandal so I snapped the strap back on 8-) Worked great and much preferable to replacing his sandals with only a week and a half to go of wearing summer uniform!

I've just got a snap press \:D/ . Just wondering if anybody has any new ideas that they haven't put on here! Looking for lots of ways to get use out of it!!!

I've deconstructed some lanyards to make "braclets" simply cut, melt hte edges and snap.

Lots of dolls "skirts" out of excess lenght on my Jeans... FOE along the top, hem the sides, and a snap at the waist.

I've repaired heaps of odd things with snaps... hard to remember what...

My friend's daughters scratch terribly, they just have incredibly irritated skin no matter what they try. So we've made little mittens that snap onto pyjama sleeves (3 snaps per mitten) and the little baby hasn't outsmarted us yet!

I made this for my daughter from ottobre spring 2010. She is in a size 92.

Replaced the buttons with snaps!
