scrapbooking alternatives to brads

Friday, April 24, 2009

This month I have two articles up at, I already shared my first article projects but here is my second article: The frugal alternative to brads. For a while now I've been using thumbtacks as an alternative to brads. Cheap, green and effective! Sure sometimes a mini brad works, or a button, but sometimes you just want something inbetween, that that's where thumbtacks come in!

You can find my full article at the website, along with a step by step guide to recoloring your thumbtacks!

What a blooming good idea, I would never have thought of that in a million years.

Thanks for the tip, I will be looking at those pins in a whole new light now.
