I remember I was so afraid of using these snaps in a purse but I was determined to do so because they make the purse. This looks so much harder than it is because it is so easy and does not take much time. Once you do it the first time you will not do it any other way. If you ever have wanted to learn how to do this than here you go. A very good tutorial and the pictures showing the steps are so good. So now the next time you want to put snaps on you can do it.
