How to extrude "offset from surface" with multiple surfaces?

I'm trying to create 9 buttons for the side of a mouse I'm making, and I'm attempting to make them by using the Extrude "Offset from surface tool". The problem is however that Solidworks gives you only one slot when you select what surface to extrude from, but the buttons overlap about 6 different surfaces. I know this method should work because the bottom three buttons don't overlap any surfaces and therefore work perfectly, it's the top 6 buttons that are the problem. It's kind of complicated to describe so I've included pictures. I'm wondering how do I make the buttons when Solidworks won't allow me to select all the surfaces.
