Vendor Spotlight & GIVEAWAY: Imaginisce I-Top Tool

Reported by Taylor Usry

I was lucky enough to receive a HUGE box of goodness from Imaginisce recently – and it was full of amazing products that coordinated with their amazing I-Top tool. If you’ve never heard about the I-Top tool, brace yourself. You are going to love it. You need it, I promise. It’s a must have for every crafter! The I-Top retails for around $20, and is widely available on the internet and in stores. It makes custom brads, magnets, hair doo-dads, snaps, buttons, rings, and pretty much anything you can think of.

There are endless accessories that you can purchase to complement the tool. When you purchase the I-Top itself, you get the tool and two “heads” (which make the brads, etc). Oh, and a demo DVD hat shows you how to use it. There are also excellent step-by-step written instructions (with photos) included.  The two it comes with are for the small (16mm) and medium (22mm) accessories. The large (28mm) and extra large (34mm) are available to purchase separately. The ergonomic pink handles are designed to be “easy-grip”.

Imaginisce makes it very easy to shop for all of the items. Each “group” of products comes in color coded packages – so all of the screw-top accessories are in purple packaging, the snap-top ones are in pink packaging, the buttons are in another color, the brads in yet another color, and so on. Each accessory that can be customized is in two pieces – a “topper” and a “base”. You can’t go wrong with color coding! It takes the guess work out of making projects.

To get started with the tool, you’ll need either the punches (available in various sizes, to coordinate with the sizes of the brads), which make short work out of getting prepared to make brads, or the templates, which do the same thing with an added step. You’d just have to cut them out yourself. You can see in the photo above the size difference from each punch. They are, from left to right,  the large (28mm), medium (22mm) and small (16mm). An added bonus? They make cute layered flowers for cards and scrapbook pages!

Once you’ve punched or cut out your shape, you are a few short steps from your finished product. You
choose the correct brad size for the shape you’ve cut or punched out, and then need to match up the appropriate heads. To change them out, the heads pulls outward (the entire piece – the pink part as well as the silver above it will pull away from the tool) and then rotates. If you need to remove one of them to add a larger or smaller head, they simply unscrew. Next you place your brad (or whatever doo-dad you are making) onto the metal head and center the topper part of it on the metal head (remember, the “topper” is the silver piece that will be the top of your brad). Then you add your cut/punched piece in the center of that metal topper. See the picture above for details.

You squeeze the handles together and the metal topper, along with the cutout piece, will be squeezed into the pink rubber head. Rotate the rubber head so you can see the topper, and then take your finger and flatten down the tabs, until you get something that looks like this:

Now that you’ve gotten the top of your brad completed, you turn the tool over and insert the base into the metal head. If it’s a brad, there is a small hole that will accommodate the “legs” (what’s the correct term for those little things? anyone know?) You align the heads and squeeze the tool together. Rotate out and peel back the rubber head and POOF! You’ve just made a custom brad!

The brad (or any other doo-dad) will have neatly pleated edges. If you’d prefer flatter edges, watch this video for a great tip.

My darling daughter was only too happy to help me choose from the wonderful Enchanted line of products to make hair clips and headbands, all of which are pictured below. The neat thing about these is that it doesn’t have to be just the topper- you can layer on fabric or paper flowers. And because the toppers snap or screw on to the clips, bobby pins, headbands, etc, it makes them all interchangeable!

We made alligator clips, layered with several paper Prima flowers. The clips come already covered in grosgrain (in a neutral silver-ish color). Two of them are pictured above. And below is one of the bobby pins we made, layered with another paper Prima.

Headbands come in packs of three: silver, pink, and black. We chose to use the large brad toppers paired with fabric flowers for these:

And then we got to the good stuff…jewelry! We made rings in various sizes, and what’s fun about the rings is that they are adjustable. Absolutely adorable paired with flowers!

I also used some 12″x12″ paper from the Enchanted line to make a quick and impel scrapbook page. See the wheels on the carriage? They are small brads I made using the I-Top tool and more paper from the Enchanted line.  I also added some bling from the same line – it’s so perfect for princesses!

I cannot figure out how I’ve functioned so long as a crafter without this tool, honestly. I love everything about it. It’s wonderful to be able to create personalized jewelry and hair things for myself and my daughter, and it’s even more wonderful to always be able to match a brad to whatever project I’m making! Thanks again to Imaginisce, for giving me the opportunity to review this wonderful tool!

Pros:

  • easy to use
  • wide range of accessories available
  • tons of videos from the company to get tips and tricks from

Cons:

  • it might be a bit overwhelming to choose which accessories you want!
  • it’s very, very addictive – I haven’t NOT used it on a project since it got here

    This is so cool! I have actually tried it, using a friend’s. We tried out fabric covered with a lacy ribbon, and it was so pretty!

  7. RAP February 15, 2011 at 2:26 pm #

    It looks so cool! I’ve heard but not tried it.

  8. FroggieStamps February 15, 2011 at 2:28 pm #

  13. Scrapycandy February 15, 2011 at 3:28 pm #

    I think the i-top could save money and really make my projects look coordinated. I have not yet had a chance to try it. I would love to use it for a banner and give that banner some 3D pop!

  14. Sandra February 15, 2011 at 3:39 pm #

    I’ve seen it, I’ve tried it and I love it! 🙂 But I do not own it… (yet)

    BIG 🙁

    Other great uses would be to try thin fabrics, Canvas, Foil paper, Embossed paper, Embossed velvet, Glitter paper… the possibilities are endless!

  17. kathy s February 15, 2011 at 4:18 pm #

    I saw this tool when it was first released I think but didn’t really take a great deal of notice of it but after watching what you can do with it I want one so bad- I have 4 granddaughters who would love heaps of hair accessories and jewellery but I could also see myself using it to make coordinating button tops for clothes- are there button tops? and so many brads etc for my cards and other crafts-please pick me.

  18. Barbara February 15, 2011 at 4:43 pm #

    I have not used this product before but it sounds absolutely amazing! I would love to make stuff with it. Oh I can just picture the buttons and the brads!

    The I-Top tool looks very cool and very easy to use. There are so many uses for this, the list seems endless. You could cover your brads with fabric, paper or pictures. I’ve never used it before, but it looks very east to use. Since I have boys, I’m very cautious on what embellishments I add to their pages, so this would be great because I could cover the brads the way I wanted to accent their pages. Awesome!!!

  20. Staci February 15, 2011 at 5:05 pm #

    It is awesome! I have a friend who has one and she uses it alot. It is so something I need to get!! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  21. Linda February 15, 2011 at 5:07 pm #

    I have seen the tool but never seen it actually in action. This does look like it would be lots of fun to make your own brads to coordinate with your project. I bet you could use all sorts of fabric to make some very awesome embellishments. Thank you for the review.

  22. Viji Siddharth February 15, 2011 at 5:11 pm #

    What do you think of the i-Top?

    I think it rocks just like the i rock!

    Have you tried it yet?

    Not yet!! but would love to!

    What other ways can you think of to top your brad?

    fabric glue?

  23. Lindsey February 15, 2011 at 5:14 pm #

    What a fun-looking product! I haven’t tried it, but do like other Imaginisce products.

  24. Dee in N.H. February 15, 2011 at 5:37 pm #

    Oh my! I just love the idea of being able to make a brad that matches my project perfectly!!

  25. sleeplesswonder February 15, 2011 at 5:57 pm #

    I have seen the i-top before and it is very high on my wishlist. I can see so many possiblities with this tool, fabric flowered brad, oh my I can only dream.

  28. Katie_Bolinger February 15, 2011 at 6:43 pm #

    I have not used an iTop yet but I can imagine all kinds of covers from candy wrappers or fabric to wall paper and paper from patterns.

  29. McStamper February 15, 2011 at 6:45 pm #

    Love this tool. So many uses.

  30. Michelle D. February 15, 2011 at 6:49 pm #

    I love being able to personalize things and this looks like it will fit the bill. Now all of my embellishments can coordinate.

    Covered buttons have always been a pretty simple project but this will make them work up in a snap

  39. Carole Huxel February 15, 2011 at 7:27 pm #

    I think Imaginisce is really on my side creating a tool like this. Once I’ve got the tool I’m good to go with any paper. No more buying a whole package of 30 brads just because I need 2! I really appreciate when a company is sensitive to my needs!! I’m going to be sure to get one of these.

  40. kreationzbyzabrina February 15, 2011 at 7:29 pm #

    gotta have it, gotta have it.
    I can see using this on leather belts, shoes, of course all kinds of hair dodads!

  41. Elaine February 15, 2011 at 7:32 pm #

    I saw this tool at my local craft store for the first time today. I am so intrigued! What a fun tool!

    the i-top seems to be a great way to make 3-d elements for scrapbooking. i haven’t tried it yet, but i would like to. it is great that it makes several kinds of items in several sizes.

  47. Fabulous & Fun February 15, 2011 at 8:05 pm #

  48. Anonymous February 15, 2011 at 8:12 pm #

    hugs judex

  50. billiejo February 15, 2011 at 9:38 pm #

    I love the I-Top. I’ve played with one that my friend owns, and I bought one with all the punches, etc. for my Mother for Christmas last year.

    This has been on my wish list since it first hit the market almost two years ago. Thanks for the chance to win one.

  51. Liz February 15, 2011 at 9:46 pm #

    I’ve seen this, but never had the good fortune to use or buy one. I love the way you can customize your brads, and I would love to use old clothes and cut pieces, make brads out of them to go on wall art, shadowboxes or frames of old family pictures, and use them as accent to the clothing style (70’s – ACK). Thanks for offering this to a lucky crafter.

  52. starrgazer February 15, 2011 at 9:50 pm #

    This looks very interesting. I think it could be a very useful tool and I would love to try one!

  53. TXcraftylady February 15, 2011 at 10:13 pm #

    GREAT PRODUCT!!! I would use this to make faces for my jointed art dolls. I plan to print out the facial expressions on the computer, & color with dye inks and chaulk.

    I also would use these on a collage for a 3D effect. I would use funky patterned paper for bottom layer, then stamp inspirational words on coordinating paper and attach to top of brad forming a smaller 2nd layer.

    I can’t wait to get my hands on this product!!!!

  54. Donna February 15, 2011 at 10:14 pm #

    I’ve never heard of this tool before but it looks like such fun. I’d love to use this for all kinds of things with card making and scrap booking.

  55. Cindy Coleman February 15, 2011 at 10:20 pm #

    I have not heard of I Top before. However I can think of a way to make shoe clips out of them, and think that would be lots of fun.

  56. Scrapping Galaxy February 15, 2011 at 10:21 pm #

    I love the idea of the itop but I’ve never tried it. I’d love to use it to make a jamaican flag brad

  57. Marion February 15, 2011 at 10:29 pm #

    I think I may have seen this before and thought it was really cool, but did not buy. It would be great to make brads etc, to match paper and other items. Great tool!!

  58. thestampinglady February 15, 2011 at 10:43 pm #

    Yes, I have seen the product. A friends of mine has one–but lives a 1000 miles from here, so I don’t get to borrow it==LOL. I would love to own one and just play. I think it would be great for making fabric buttons too, besides the covered brads. Thanks for the chance to win.

  59. jen t. February 15, 2011 at 10:44 pm #

    What do you think of the i-Top?
    looks like it rocks!
    Have you tried it yet?
    no but i have been wanteing one since i set my eyes on it online but haven’t beenable to get it cause budget didn’t allow me to get it 🙁
    What other ways can you think of to top your brad? oh! would make a cute custom ring or necklace charm in the center of a crochet flower:)

  60. Linda F February 15, 2011 at 10:58 pm #

    I have seen this before but have never tried it. Now that I see what all you can do makes me want it. Besides scrapbooking with it, I love the way you can make the hair items. With having granddaughters I can see this would be very useful.

  61. Jan Castle February 15, 2011 at 11:06 pm #

    I did see it on a blog recently, but have not tried it or even seen one for sale locally.

  62. SuZeQ February 15, 2011 at 11:07 pm #

    Nope, never heard of it – until now. But, now that I’ve heard, I want one. NOW. Bring it! Pretty please with sugar on top.

  63. Sue in CT February 15, 2011 at 11:07 pm #

    I have seen it before on the store shelf. I never seen it used or tried it. I love the whole concept of being able to make coordinated accents. I would really love one. I not only would use it on my pages or cards but this would be great for all the baskets I make. You know, like an Easter Basket, Fruit Basket, Food Basket. I really wish I had it when my daughter got married. It would of saved me a lot of shopping for “Just the right thing” to make her veil. I can think of tons of uses for it. Everything from decorative pillows to covers for the kitchen chairs. (It would be great to have the accent of whatever I want instead of that old stand by….a bow.) Thanks for a chance to win.

    I’ve tried it before and it’s pretty cool. I know I’ll use the smallest brads most often, the large ones seem huge!

  68. Anita February 16, 2011 at 1:05 am #

    I would love to create with this tool.

  69. broadwaydiva February 16, 2011 at 1:07 am #

  77. Liza Henderson February 16, 2011 at 8:15 am #

    OMG! I love the iTOP. I have played with it before at Swarms but do not have one. I would love to use it to make the snap flowers for my girls headbands, as well as some custom magnets and buttons. I am sure I would use it for everything BUT brads….. This is an awesome tool and I would LOVE to have one!

  78. Anna February 16, 2011 at 8:21 am #

    Cool! I’d never heard of it, but it looks like fun.

  79. Rhonda February 16, 2011 at 8:36 am #

    I’ve loved the I-Top ever since the first time I saw it demonstrated at my local Archivers. I tried it there, but have not purchased it yet. I think it would be cool to make brads with my children’s pictures to use on their scrapbook pages!

  80. Marie / Legojenta February 16, 2011 at 8:45 am #

    I think the i-Top looks really fun! I’ve seen it in use on videos etc. before, but never seen it irl =)

  84. Kaysi Leiterman February 16, 2011 at 10:34 am #

    I LOVE the Imaginisce i-Top! I tried it out at our LSS and it was love at first site! I use brads on EVERY project and owning this would be awesome! I would use for my cards and layouts, hair barrettes, and also for upholstery. Thanks for the chance to win!

  85. Farida Rone February 16, 2011 at 10:54 am #

    I like a lot the whole concept of the itop. The best of it, is that you can use the same paper you are using on your project to match. This is wonderful!!!

    Wow! What an amazing an versatile tool, and not too expensive, either. I would love to make hair clips with kids as a youth group activity.

    I would love to have one of these! With a little girl on the way, I see lots of hair accessories in my future! I Top seems like a good way to make them myself.

    I got to use a friend’s i top tool. It was fun to use to coordinate with her pages. And to play with something new! I would love to use this on all kinds of projects and by adding embellishments on top of the papers selected.

    I have seen this item in Michaels and wasn’t quite sure how to use it. It looks very interesting and now that I know what it is for, I just might have to buy it.

    I saw this demonstrated at the Orlando CHA show in Orlando a while back. I think it is a pretty neat tool. Just to think that you can match your brads to anything that you are doing! Cool!

    The i-Top looks absolutely amazing! I love to add embellishments to my scrapbook pages and ALWAYS use brads!! I wouldn’t have to scour the internet and craft stores for what I need, I could make it instead! What a time saver!!! It looks easy enough that my 6 yr old could use it too!! She is a hairband junkie! I can see her decorating all kinds of them! =)

    I have been tempted to buy this tool since they released it, and the little accessories they keep releasing for it make it even better!

    I love the i-Top!! I would be able to match everything….so important!!

    I think the itop is very cool but I have been on the fence about getting one. I appreciate your review of it, it makes me want to go get one on my next shopping trip. 🙂

    Hi there~ I have loved this since it came out but lost my job & have not been able to buy as many goodies as I used to. I do not have it nor have I ever tried it but given the chance I would try felt, quilt squares, glitter paper, fabric, ribbons & flocked papers.
    This is so cool- it would be great to win. Good luck everyone!

    I think this is a fabulous tool – I have not seen one in person yet but have heard people rave about it.
    I think it would be great to make brads with photos on them.
