I'm looking for some little embellishment thingys-- I have no idea what to call them so net searching is no good.  The girl at Hobby Lobby thought I was nuts.

They are small, maybe the size of a quarter usually, and made of a satiny material (acetate?) and have a thin layer of foam inside to make them squishy.  The edges are heat cut/melted together.  I've seen them in packages before, but now... nowhere.  They come in every shape-- ladybugs, hearts, flowers, happy faces, you name it.

Anyone know what to call them and/or where to find them?

EDIT: I found some here: http://cgi.ebay.com/50-STRAWBERRY-EMBELLISHMENTS-4-CARDMAKING-FREE-P-P_W0QQitemZ8255712918QQcategoryZ75572QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

But what to call them?

I know exactly what you're talking about - you're not crazy.

But.... I have no idea what you are talking about.

Goodluck ^_^

I knew exactly what you meant!  I did some searching (for like half an hour!  I have no life.) and finally hit on a couple of good keywords.  "Embellishments" got me nowhere, but "puffy appliques", "padded appliques" and "3D appliques" got me where I wanted. 

Soooo....check the applique section of Hobby Lobby in the Wearable Arts department and you should be good to go!

Thanks, abblie, I'll search with those terms...

My mom and I spent two hours in Hobby Lobby today looking everywhere for them.  No luck.  Maybe a scrapbook place, but there's none around here and they probably mark them up too high.  I can only find them overseas right now, but I'm going to try searching again Monday with your terms.  Thanks!

I know I've found some at HL, be sure to check all the clearance stuff they put on the endcaps on the back os the aisles.  I've found some awesome deals there.  I just hate that their clearance merchandise is spread out all over the store rather than all in one spot.  (It makes me late coming back from lunch!) 

I also hate that they're closed on Sunday.  The Sundays that I NEEED to buy hot pink rick-rack AND I'm craving Chick-fil-a waffle fries are absolutely unbearable!  Smiley

I'm not sure what they are called either but I do have some that I got from a fellow craftster in Florida. If you would like them we could swap for something. d Smiley

If only closed minds came with closed mouths!

If the world is getting smaller, why do postage rates keep going up?


Personal swap anyone?

Wow--What are they called?  I've always referred to them as satin puffies, but I have a feeling that isn't the true name.  They're one of those items that seem to find me rather than the reverse.
