I had heard quite a bit about the Stampin' Up! Build-A-Brad kit, but had never tried it myself. So with my last order, I order one of the kits. It is pictured above. It comes in a cute little tin with a see thru top. You will find it on Pg 179 of the main catalog.
Build-a-Brad choice of 2 kits, each $9.95
Item #109108 Antique Brass
Item #109128 Pewter (this is the set I used)
Punch a 1/2" circle of Designer Series Paper or stamp a custom image to build your own brad! Kit includes 24 each brad bases and adhesive acrylic bubbles.
Here is the kit opened up. It has a plastic insert so that the bases and the bubbles can be kept separate in the tin. I placed one of the bases on top of the bubbles so you could see it a bit better.
I stamped a larger image, then punched it out with 1/2" circle paper punch (item #104390). Use a small glue dot or adhesive to put the 1/2" circle in the base. Then carefully take the bubble and set it on top. Press firmly to secure.
What a great way to make a custom brad. I was really pleased with the outcome and think they are a perfect addition to this card. I would recommend this product and hope that you will try them too.
Here's my finished card. I created my own Designer Series Paper by stamping images on white card stock for the base. All stamped images used in this card are from the Vintage Vogue Stamp Set, item #117690 - wood mount OR item #118598 for clear mount. I also used the In Colors of Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry.
