#G45Tip: How to easily remove the prongs from the Antique Brass Brads so you can use them on any project.


1.Use your Tim Holtz Scissors by Tonic and grab one end of the prong close to the head of the brad.

2. Holding the prong with the scissors gently twist the scissors to the right allowing the prongs to pop off the brad head.

3. Add adhesive to the rim of the brad head and attach anywhere on your project.

These treat bags are so cute. This paper is the best collection from Graphic 45 so far, although I am really looking forward to the new Bloom collection. Thank you for the inspiration.

It was interesting watching the video which showed how much care & attention Ginger gave to her beautiful project. I noticed that Ginger always burnished the tape on both sides with a bone folder & her work is so lovely. Love these papers.

Oh my gosh, I would love to make one for my best friend. She makes me goody bags somewhat frequently, so she would love this--I told her about your gorgeous papers and now she's hooked!

Love Notes is playing my creative heartstrings!! I can't wait to start working on projects. Fussy cutting those roses will be the start of many beautiful cards and albums!
