I keep seeing great fan-dangle gadgets to help you make great custom brads….
Nice for some but I think I can make my own without all that stuff…… Here’s how:
Pen or pencil
flathead brads Any shape will do
tape runner adheasive
Measure your buttons and print your images just a little bigger than your buttons on your colour printer.
I used 1.5″ buttons
put your button down onto your image and draw a star around it.
cut out your picture as shown.
put tape runner adheasive on the back of the picture and stick the flat side of the button to it.
fold around the star “legs” to the other side of the button
This is what it will look like
Add dimensional glue to the face of the covered button. This makes it look like an epoxy brad and has a shiny finish to it.
Will take several hours to dry. And will dry clear.
Once brad head is dry get out your glue gun and glue the brad to the back of it.
Your brad is finished!
Wait a little bit for the glue to set and your new custom brad is ready to use. Groovy aye
enjoy your new custom brads!!
