50 Ways to Use Brads

I absolutely love brads! I use them often on my cards and on my scrapbook pages. These days you can find brads in many different shapes and sizes, from candles to butterflies and from mini to giant! Sometimes it's hard to think of ways to use items we haven't used a great deal before, but the ways to use brads are almost unending.
SU! has been coming up with some beautiful brads in the past several months. Check out your current catalog or mini or the new catalog that will be out June 1 this year.
 Here are just a few that I've come up with. Any of these can be used on cards on scrapbook los.
