Quick Tip

I'm sure I'm not the first person to have thought of this, but just in case anyone else hasn't, I thought I'd share it. I needed a black brad & didn't have one. So I tried colouring a different one with a black Promarker. It needed a few coats, but I was amazed at how well it worked. So now I won't have to buy lots of different coloured brads. Obviously for pale colours I'd need a white or very light coloured one to start with, but I can just colour one whenever I need it with whatever colour I'm using on my project & it will match perfectly. :-)

I've done this with my Sharpies, it works well. You can also draw designs on flat large brads that looks quite good and makes them unique.

It's so cool, isn't it? They also work well on peel offs, ribbons, lace, pearls and gems, too.
