Brads have become one of the most popular metal embellishments used for scrapbook page layouts. Because of convenience and appeal these little items are in high demand. Brads for scrapbooking adds color, texture and charm to page layouts. When using brads for scrapbooking you will need to have a 1/8” or smaller hole punch or a piecing tool available to punch your holes for the brads. You can use a ruler or some sort of measurement tool to help you place your brads evenly on the pages.
Brads can be used to outline a photo mat or page border. They can be used for decorating die-cuts and stamped images, for example you can put a brad in the middle of a flower image to add depth and dimension. Brads for scrapbooking are perfect for both beginners and advanced scrappers. With brads the possibilities are endless.
