Quick and simple :)
I'm still experementing with cover buttons.
My geeky cross-stitch rings take a lot of time to finish, so I was looking for something less time-consuming.
You can use nearly every motive you can imagine and those rings make a really nice, easy and personal present.

Choose a picture!
I mostly use the Google picture search but you can take any picture you like (why not wear your pet on your finger ;) )
Open your picture in a picture editing program. I'm not familiar with Photoshop, so I simply used Microsoft Word.
Shape your picture in a circle and change its size. Use the diameter of your cover buttons and add a few millimetres, so it will finally cover the edges of the button.
You might need a few tries to find the exact measurements for your motive. At least it took me three tries until I was satisfied :)
If you want to print several motives, be sure to leave enough space between them, so it will be easier to cut them out.
As soon as your fabric cooled down, you can attach it to the cover button.
Be sure to remove the button's hook before closing it.
(I'm sorry, I forgot to take more pictures. If there are any questions, feel free to ask :) )
Glue the button onto a ring blank... that's it :)
