I like the look and ease of them, but that price is something I would have to consider before investing in them.

I'd like these much better if they sparkled or were actually made of gold.

It is funny, i thought $5 was a great price, but then i live in NZ where a sheet of PP costs anything around $2 or $2.50

these in NZ would be like $10
Mister Huey is $12.99 here

it sucks but i am just happy to get it all so cheap from the US , even with shipping it is cheaper


Happy Scrapping

Thanks, Bethany, those counterfeit enamel dots look much better than the fake pearls I tried to make. I've never seen those little styrofoam beads, though - I'll have to look for them!

I just looked at the new ones after reading this thread, so am I seeing correctly that there are only 3 sizes now, but more of them??

I have to say they are all in my cart, but I haven't even used any of the packs I already have

I just made some last wk using Ranger liquid pearls ( looks like a stickles bottle, but are pearlized instead of glittery). I just dotted them on a piece of wax paper, flicked the underside with my finger to smooth out the surface "point" then let them dry.

The next day I had beautiful little pearl drops. I colored several with my Faber-Castelle big Brush markers and after the ink dried - they looked great!

I'm also going to try cheap-y nail polish colors too, I think. Just drip some dots onto paper, let dry and see what I get.

Yes, I agree - the look is really cute, but $5 is a really crazy price for dots of color!

LOL!!! I was just looking at them and thought the same thing. I never buy them without a coupon.I'll go back everyday and get one pack each if I have to $5 is a bit high.

I love them too, but won't pay the price for them. Also, brads are hard to get through the mail. Our postal workers always give me a hard time if I have a card with brads. So, I use Craftwork Cards Candi Dots. They are amazing and come in every imaginable color and design. I saw them at summer CHA. They come in 10 gm. pkgs that have about 400 dots in them for about $4. They are made of paper and really look awesome in place of brads. There are mini pop dots for under them too.

What the heck are dewdrops?

Also last time I was in both J's and M's I noticed that they had some $1 sticky gems that weren't faceted - mainly pearls but I also saw some that were silver. I bet those would be easy to customize with inks or paint.

Dew drops are made by Robins Nest. The are little embellishments similar to the enamel dots. I have them in a bunch of colors. They work perfectly when applying with the mini glue dots, which are the same size.

You could even make yourself a size template by printing on the rough side of a transparency and using the smooth side for your paint.


Love this idea!

I make my own from Ranger Enamel Accents & color them with alcohol ink.


I was just going to post the same thing. I bought a bottle of white and black, and I color the white as needed. Next I'm going to try making them on waxed paper in batches.

I like using ebmbossing powder on brads...I hold the brad with tweezers and heat the brad head. Dip it into your jar of embossing powder and let cool for a few seconds. You can get some great colors
