A TAG OR A BUTTON.... that is the question

A friend of mine gave me these buttons
or are they tags ?
 Technically I think they are tags 
but I think you could use them as buttons.
EXCEPT
they are made of plastic and are double sided 
and split in two leaving the middle adhesive.
SO 
are they tags or buttons ? 

WHAT DO YOU THINK

ok - why not split them and put a paper back on each half and then you'd have 2 buttons! Now I probably wouldn't put them on anything I was going to launder but I'm sure you have lots of other ideas where you could use them. I must say there are some very cool patterns on these that tempt me.

They look like a scrapbooking embellishment to me. I think they are supposed to be buttons (but not for clothes); perhaps they split so you get more in the package. They don't look like a tag to me at all so I'm having a tough time envisioning that.

These are wonderful! I have a small collection of buttons and use them to make jewelry!
I like this blog, it's amazing

As a clothing button collector, I'd say they are not clothing buttons, but rather craft buttons/embellishments. I believe they are often called buttons as they can be sewn on through button holes. They are made and sold in crafting markets not clothing markets.

I agree that they are for a craft project, but they more attractive then most that you see.

Definitely embellishments for projects not clothes! Just found this blog as someone suggested it to me after seeing my jars of buttons! Look forward to reading. Zo xx
