Default brad

My upline showed us a projest from leadership that turned the build a brads into a braclet. She used jump rings to connect the brads. This isnt the best picture but it's all I have.


This was not my idea just an idea from an upline who saw it at Leadership!!

Oh MY GOSH!!! The bracelet is fabulous! Thanks for posting the link to the tutorial - it actually looks "do-able" by an average person.

The only thing I've used the build-a-brads for is as an tree ornament on a card with a stamped pine bough (saw the inspiration card here on SCS, natch! )

I'll be watching for more great ideas.

I think its so cute! You can "dress it up" with glitter and clear effects, or rhinestone brads.
I used the same idea and made them into key chains

I did a video tutorial on the basic way to use it with paper. It is episode 182 and is currently the latest one available.

I've never thought of getting them either - but am second guessing that decision! I can't wait to get to my home computer so I can watch the tutorial!!
