Six Ways to Use Enamel Dots

3:05 PM

I have a confession to make. I am still computerless, which means I am a lazy blogger. I use Michael's big clunky work laptop and I just plain don't like it. It is my hope that a new laptop and I will be together someday soon.

 Today I have a few ideas for using enamel dots! When I first saw these things, I didn't get the hype. They're just colored dots for Pete's sake! Plus, I'm still on the bling train. It's not as trendy anymore but I still really like it! Enamel dots don't even sparkle. I threw one in with an All Scrapbook Steals order just to see what the buzz was all about. Now I'm in love with these little guys!

 {In case you're wondering, enamel dots are tiny dots of colored plastic. Only a few brands are making them at this point, but they come in so many beautiful colors and sizes. Below is an example of their beauty}


So here we go! Feel free to click on a layout to make it bigger. I just didn't want to have giant pictures of my pages taking up the whole post!

1. Use them as an accent

3. Use them as flower centers

4. Mix them with pearls and/or brads

5. Use them to create a background

6. Use them as bullet points
