For today, we're looking at brads a little differently...not as card embellishments, but as berries on Christmas ornaments. You sure can use up a LOT of brads this way!!!!
These ornaments were made with the following supplies:
- purple Marvy scallop circle punch
- pink Marvy circle punch
- craft thread
- Memento Bahama blue and cottage ivy
- brads, 12 each
- Papertrey Ink's A Wreath for All Seasons stamp set
One thing I love about using brads here is the weight they add to the ornaments. Paper ornaments tend to be very light and fluttery, but these are slightly heavier and hang nicely.
While these are rather obvious to construct, I attached the thread loops between the dimensional and the scallop circle by knotting the two ends together and placing said knot below the dimensional for added stability. It will be hard to pull the knot between the paper and the dimensional, but it might be easy for the two loose ends to pull through.
These would make extra special gift tags or small gifts at Christmas. They are easy, quick, and like I said above, consume lots of brads!
