The brads I prefer are the ones with the tinier legs. I would like to think that the ones that are packaged and sold for scrapbooks have a special coating on them but I think I am probably deluding myself.
Well I used them today for the first time and they are VERY easy. Literally you just poke a hole or make a small slit with shears or an exacto knife in the paper, insert the brad and pull the legs back.
Eyelets are just as easy! Just make a hole put it thru and flatten the back using the eyelet tool and a hammer! Or you can be like me and just forget the eyelet tool and giver a good whack with the hammer!! It works on the plain eyelets but I would not recommend my "technique" on any of the decorative/shaped ones as it will probably distort the shape somewhat!
