These long fasteners from Tim Holtz have the same mini head as other brads, but a longer post so that you can attach dimensional object... Full Description & Details.
I bought these specifically because of the pretty antique color assortment. But I soon realized that they were really long and thats so that you can fasten things to your LO's and cards and still have room to close them.
LOVE THESE FASTENERS. A LOT OF TIMES I HAVE A THICKER ITEM TO USE ON MY CARDS, BAGS, ETC. THE OTHER FASTENERS ARE JUST NOT LONG ENOUGH. THESE ARE PERFECT.
I always use products by Tim Holtz. They are the best on the market!! Thanks for carrying them.
Excellent for fastening items that need something that will reach through several layers.
I ordered these brads a couple of weeks ago while looking for a long brad to use to hold the book plate on the back of a wooden magazine holder. Because the description said they were "long" fasteners, I expected them to be at least longer than the brads I had at home for most of my normal scrapbooking purposes.
Unfortunately, I felt like it was a bit of false advertising. When they showed up, they really didn't seem to be any longer than the "normal" length brads I had. They appear to be well-made, so I'm sure I'll use them. No qualms with the quality -- just feel the description was a bit misleading.
