Default SU Candy Dots ? ?

Could someone tell me if the SU Candy Dots have a lower profile than rhinestones, flat backed pearls or brads (I plan to use the Dots without the brad base)? I'm hoping the Dots are somewhat flatter for mailing purposes than other types of bling. TIA!

Rita

I just ordered mine last week and they haven't arrived yet. From what I have read they are flat which will make them great for mailing. If you don't get a definite response from someone I will let you know when mine arrive.

yes, they are flatter than brads, pearls and rhinestones.

I love them! They are flatter than the Rhinestones. They stick really well. I use my poking tool to take them off and place them on my card.

I want to buy more. Much better to use without poking holes in your Artwork!

Love them! And they are great if you decide after you have everything assembled that it needs a little something else!

The brad bases can hold SU rhinestones or pearls, not just the candy dots, which is another neat look

They are definitely flatter, and so much fun to use! One of my favorite new accessories.

how do you get the candy dots to stick. Do you need to use some adhesive?

The adhesive is already on them just like the pearls and rhinestones. Mine came yesterday and I like them. I have used some dots from another company and I think the SU version looks more like a brad then any others I've used. I just used the dot not the brad base. I will be ordering more next quarter as I have already met my minimum for this quarter.

Last Saturday evening our internet was taken out by a lightening strike and our service was just restored today. I just wanted to say "THANK YOU" to all who responded to my question about the profile of the candy dots! I'll be ordering some soon.

Hugs, Rita
