  1. Thank you for the video on snaps. I just made a couple little clutch purses and I needed to put snaps on him which I bought the snaps but I couldn’t figure out how to do it this was perfect timing now I feel like I can go ahead and attempt this and not make it in correct thank you so much for the video .

  2. I have some decorative snaps, cross, Indian head, etc. Should I use the anvil to hold them or just a piece of leather on my stone?
    Thank you

    1. Hi Jim,
      For decorative snaps, I like to take a piece of veg-tanned leather, wet it, and press the decorative part into the leather. Let it dry and you now have an anvil the shape of your snap so it won’t roll around on you and the stone won’t scratch it. Set the leather anvil on top of your marble slab to set the snaps so you still have a solid surface.
