I love the ITop Brad Maker and use it on almost everything from layours, cards and even boxes. I can use the paper of my project to make brads which pull the design together. However, a discovery has me loving this product even more. I found I can use the punches to make flowers. I simply ink then blend the edges, crumple them and stack three to make flowers, using a custom made brad to hold them together. They turn out very pretty and give my layouts the three dimenional and realistic look I just love. Who knew?!
I guess that I am lazy! Having this punch is so much easier and FASTER than using the template and cutting out a topper each time that I want to make a large brad. -works for me!
