I'm not sure what you did, if you got a "large empty area around the 
button". You leave the button at the same size - usually just large 
enough to accommodate the icon - then adjust the top and bottom 
margins until both icon and text are centered. (If you just increase 
the bottom margin, the text moves up but so does the icon, so you 
also need to increase the top margin to move the icon back down.)
