Altered Brads

Hi all - I'm back! I had a wonderful week away visiting my family and watching my DD perform in a play. She was Olive in "The Odd Couple" and I think she did a marvellous job!

I loved being away yet it was also lovely to come home.

While I was away, I did a little experimenting with altering brads for my paper craft projects. Have you ever done that? It's quite good fun! I wrote up how I did it at PaperCraftCentral, of course!

I plan to visit lots of blogs over the next few days to see what you have all been busy creating!

I'm off to visit your Paper crafts site to find out how you did this. It is fantastic looking in the center of this flower.

I just went over and read about your altering brads. Nicely done. I like how you used the toilet paper roll to hold the brads. I was wondering what I could use and then saw your photo....I couldn't help but chuckle. I never would have thought of this. Thanks for an inexpensive solution and something that I already have on hand.
