I wished for these brads for so long and I finally received them as a gift in a swap! They are more beautiful than they look online. The colors are soft and the glossy finish adds just the right amount of shine! The larger brads look great in the center of large flowers and the smaller ones are the perfect size to hold onto fibers and ribbon. They were certainly worth the wait. I love the way they coordinate with the other BG Two Scoops papers and embellishments.
If you are on the fence w/getting these yummy brads, I say GO FOR IT!!! They have a "glass-like" surface which IMHO makes them look very chic. The larger brads are beautiful - with just the right punch of color to embellish your project, while li'l brads are perfect for securing small flowers. A little more $$ than some other brands, but definitely worth the price!
I have used these in so many layouts and projects, I can hardly remember how many! Beautiful glazed brads of a really high quality - I'd highly recommend them. Pink blue green lemon - they fit into just about any layout.
