If you own a snap press for nappies, it only comes with the dies for plastic snaps. And if you want to buy the dies for metal snaps at a later date, well, it's pretty darn exxy.
I discovered a simple solution the other day when fuming over lack of funds to purchase said dies.
I give you the snaps press hack!
So simple I'm surprised I didn't think of it before. Just take out the top die and replace with the little tool that comes in the packet of snaps. Tighten. Put the base snap holder on the lower die. A bit of padded double sided sticky tape works well to hold it in place.
And that's it. So easy.
The result is much nicer than when I bang away with a hammer too.
