Please help. I am looking for white flat back pearls for scrapbooking and card making. I am exhausted in the search. I've tried eb/here/joann/michael. All I see is the products with a few for a lot of money. I want more for my money! What do you suggest?

I usually use the self-adhesive pearls. I also sometimes use Liquid Pearls. It takes a little practice to get a nicely-rounded pearl shape, but they are a good substitute for "real" pearls. All of these come in many colors.

(I see some of those I listed are shown as discontinued, but you might be able to find them in other places and there are other color choices available at this site.)

I bought white (pearl) flatbacks on Amazon.
Big bag of mixed sizes for not too much.

Getting the pearls as a big box store with coupons helps!
On some things there does not seem to be much help for the big prices!

What about melting the pearled beads and the tiny plastic beads?

I love my Pearl pens. I have a few different colors. I make my own pearls that are perfect for cards and layouts.
