I still have some from when they were the thing five or so years ago. I have a bunch of themey, shaped ones. I also have some really cool ones that Doodlebug used to sell to match their paper lines. Another example of trends coming back into style...Glad I held onto those old supplies.

OK, I don't know what happened. I tried to post this at home and kept getting a Bad Gateway and then this one posted without a topic!

HERE IS THE ORIGINAL POST
I have watched some youtubes recently and maybe a GG, not sure about her, and they are using sequins. It seems that maybe they are being put in monthly kits. So, I was at HL on Friday and thought I would pick up a bag of multi-colored small sequins. Now I don't know what I will do with them. At the moment I am scrapping just boy LOs, as I have a stack of pics to get through of my youngest DS.

How many of you are using sequins and point me in that direction? Would love to see them!!

I was thinking about sewing some into a slot of a divided page protector for my december daily (or you could use washi to seal the slot). Or if I'm real motivated, I might try sewing some inside a shape - maybe a Christmas tree shape? - sewn into the page protector....

i love using sequins and like that they're coming back in vogue. i mean, i use them when they're not in vogue too, but i like the reminder to get them out when i see them popping up here and there.

Yes, sequins are back. I love it! But I'm a huge fan of any kind of bling!

Wasn't it Heidi Swapp that did some sequins on stars and arrows last year? those were cute for boy pages. I figure you can use then on stars, arrows and prolly even gears for boys.

A Muse Studio is releasing so sequins in their Valentines catalog next month.

They are super cute placed in a row using super sticky 1/4" tape.

I was trying to decide whether to participate in the sequin share on the FSOT board, and did a search for "sequins" in the gallery. There are a ton of great examples there - including boy pages! (And yes, I ordered some!)

Sequins have never gone away as far as I can tell. I have always seen them used in crafts and in fashion.

I've been using sequins on my pages for over a decade. It would be neat to see it be a 'thing'

Omg... so.. for those of us who do not like sequins, we can run over to the for sale or trade board, and sell all of ours?


Yes! ... (I think I doodlebugged my sequins out a couple years ago)

If sequins are the next new thing, I'll pass them up.Bling has never been my style, so y'all won't have to worry about fighting me for your share!

At the risk of sounding dumb, how do you sew a sequin on? Doesn't it only have one single hole? (Disclaimer: I have never sewn anything in my whole life ever!)

I think SC started putting them in kits about six(ish) moths ago. I just used some on a layout this week (flower shapes) and I didn't hate them, but also not sure if they're me. Could also be because the sequin box exploded when I was trying to open it, so now it's on a time out.

I am sure there are many different ways but my go-to is to put a seed bead in the center. Just up through the paper and center hole, through the bead and back down the center hole in the sequin.

Works great for small flower centers or several for larger flowers.
Glue works too but I don't mind threading a needle

How do you attach them if you aren't going to sew? I picked up this amazing package of square sequins (I'm a sucker for squares!) but I can't figure out how to attach them securely. I think even my smallest glue dots would be too big.

Thanks

This thread is making me want to play! I have sequins, just never was sure what to do with them. Must finish my Christmas cards so I can scrap! Off to get busy now.

I think Gluertick Girl is the one that uses them in a very effective way. Most of her layouts are about her boys and the are some sequins in them and I like them.
