Breezy gave me a couple of her belts that have fallen apart. They are made of these really rows neat "brads." As the first belt was peeling on the back, I grabbed the peeling piece and yanked it. When it came apart from the rest of the belt, all the little "brad" pointy pieces came up. This made it easier to straighten them and remove them.
Here's the pictures:
I'm going to use these "brads" on the covers of journals.
