Default Looking for extra large brads

I was at a stamp show in September and saw a card that was being displayed at Polkadots that had huge brown brads, they didn't have them at the brads at the show and when I do a search for Polkadots nothing comes up. I'm attaching a picture of the card that had the brads in case anyone can identify them or at least give me an idea where to look. Thanks Marge

Default Large decorative brads

I can't see the design on the brads on the card, but we have large brads from Imaginisce in several designs and metals. Maybe some of ours would work for you.

You can see them here: Imaginisce

I don't know if this will help but I know you can get large brads at Office Max an Office Depot. There are videos on YouTube that will share how to color brads.

Also in the tutorial section. There's a tutorial for making faux brads.

They sure remind me of the paper Candi faux brads. If you embossed them, the look would be very similar.....and much lighter, cheaper, and mailable.
