Pros: Sequins are hot right now, and these little packs are an incredible value considering that boutique online retailers are charging $3 for 1/8th of this packet. This blue set is probably my second favorite, after the greens, because of the wide variation in color. I found myself tempted to put the lightest color (mint blue) in with the greens and the darkest (dark indigo) in with the purples, but that just shows the wide spread. Pretty.
Cons: Packaging on these is a pain in the rear.
I thought this was a beautifully chosen assortment of sequins: there are solid metallic ones and sparkly holographic ones, translucent iridescent ones---all in beautiful shades, and a nice manageable quantity that is suitable for the hobby paper-crafter. I think this set is a really good value, and bought all five color sets that were available. I knew from reading other reviews that they would need to be containerized in something other than their original packaging and I found a bead storage container that consists of little plastic flip-top boxes (much like Tic-Tac candy is sold in), and that works really well for me. Wrangling them into their new containers was NOT fun (sequins get staticky and are obnoxious to handle), but it was totally worth the effort.
