Alter Brads: Emboss or Foil!

Create your own! by Brenda Crouch

Hi everyone, Brenda here with a great tip to share! How many times have you been in the middle of a project and wanted a certain colored embellishment to finish that creation and of course didn't have it, or it's just not available? If you are like me, it happens frequently, but, with a few  ScraPerfect products, you can create your own easily and quickly.



I started with ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever, ScraPerfect Foil Pack, a couple of gold metal star brads and a gold heart metal brad.


All you need to do, is coat those brads with ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever. Be sure to use a nice heavy coat. It will go on milky and once dry with be clear.


Don't get in a rush...make sure the glue is entirely dry/clear. Actually it won't be 'dry', rather it will be extremely tacky and sticky.


Ok, now they are ready. Choose your foil color, I needed some nice strong rich blue embellishments, so I chose this beautiful blue foil.


I've already done one, as you can see, there is a blank star pattern in the foil where I already used it. I am now pressing the foil onto the next star brad and rubbing with my finger.


VOILA! Here is the second finished blue foiled star! Perfect!


So, I now have two perfectly colored brads that I will use on my creation. There is plenty of foil to use on many other projects as you can see.


My beautiful blue foiled heart brad that is now ready to use.

ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever and ScraPerfect Foil pack are two invaluable items to have in your stash ladies to create your own colored embellishments. You are only limited by your own imagination and the possibilities are endless.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you share your creations you make with these products.
