Does anyone use those brad things that come in kits? Seems like the kits I get usually have a couple of them. I've tried to use them, but don't think they look right or something. Anyone have any layouts that they use them on? I could really use some ideas here.

Thanks!

You know I just looked through my gallery and realized I have never used them. Maybe we should have a challenge for all us brad-challenged scrappers.

I think I've used them as polka dots or the center of flowers or to look like nail heads. I'm not even sure what they are supposed to be for.

Brads are like small button looking things. they are typically used to hold down paper or what not. Here is a page with some on it

I have used them as flower centers or even the colored ones as star centers before. I prefer buttons to brads in general, though.
