1,300 Brads

WOWZA! Thats A LOT of mini brads....or is it?? HA HA HA
Several weeks ago Hobby Lobby had them 1/2 off. Luckily I have 2 HL in town so I grabbed what they had.
So what do you do with 1,300 mini brads AND 13 embossing powders????
You EMBOSS them!!!!!
100 mini brads for each color......SO PRETTY!!!! Lots of FUN too....LOVE IT!!!! Now, I have more embellishments and they fit so nicely in my embellishment boxes that I made.
I got 10 pkgs of the brass mini brads (100 per package SUPER DEAL!!) and 6 pkgs of the white mini brads (50 per package, not that great of a deal LOL) but I wanted 1300 brads.....
Then I came home and started embossing them.
TA DA!!! Aren't they PRETTY!!!!??

from top left to right:  beige (tan), black, blue, brown, gray (silver), green, orange, pink, purple, red, white, yellow and gold.

I didn't poke them through the lid cause I wanted to see that they were brads, I didn't want to get them confused with my DIY enamel dots. I stuck them on with a glue dot.
I'm so EXCITED!! my embellishments are expanding......YAHOO!!!
