Frugal Scrapbooking Hack: Cheap Shaped Brads

I found this awesome pack of studs similar to ‘bedazzling’ bling in some clearance bin. They’ve made useful stand-ins for expensive shaped brads.

Simply place background over a piece of fun foam or an old mouse pad, push in to place, flip the whole shebang over, and fold over the prongs with a popsicle stick. I bought this pack of various sizes and shapes of studs for about $2 in 2005 and it’s still going strong!
