Have you ever seen so many corners before???

I might suggest when deciding which corner will be best for your project that you put the dimensions down on paper so you can see the size up close and personal.  Our return policy is returns will not be accepted unless the product is faulty. 
The corners are either decorative- meaning they just sit on top of the corner just purely as eye candy or they are functional which means they slide over the cover protecting the top, bottom and side of the book- and they are nice eye candy too.
If you click on- Add to Cart- it will give you the item number and that is most helpful if you call with questions about a corner.

It is very important to note that many of the functional corners will angle in so that it is not a true channel depth all the way down.  This is a hard concept for me to retlate...let's try this, if you have one piece of bread and you fold it in half, even with the meat & cheese in it, where the bread folds it won't be quite as wide as the area that holds the meat and cheese.  So you have the option to go to a little larger channel depth or realize that you may have to crimp down the tip of your project where the corner fits over.  On some projects, this won't have any effect at all, I just want you to be aware of it so you can take everything into consideration when ordering.

Please measure your corners before ordering.   I have the measurements for them, please use the measurements to draw  the size on a sheet of paper to properly gauge your needs.  There are no returns on product unless it is defective.
I have been unable to find any corners that have a channel depth wider than 1/4"- most are about 1/8".  Most of the styles are in brass or gold tone- silver and copper are much more difficult to find.  However, you could spray them with a metallic paint-found in your local hardware- for a different look. 


Functional Corner Covers~I have had some success recently in acquiring more corners.  These particular corners are a lighter weight metal and have a pretty scrolly like design deeply embossed in the metal.  This lightweight metal makes it easier to crimp the cormer down over a cover.  These come in 2 different colors, brass gold and black.  Although nickel silver is pictured, my supplier has not been able to get them back in stock for couple years now.  The legs of the corners measure approx. 1/2".  The channel depth is 1/8" but these are a little tricky because they angle in to the corner so I would stick with a cover that is less than 1/8" thick.   

Pkg. 8


Functional Brass Gold Covers - OUT OF STOCK

Functional Black Covers-

Functional Nickel Silver Covers- OUT OF STOCK- Permanently, but all 3 are pictured together so, silver is out.  My supplier has not been able to get any for several years now- so doubtful if ever. 


Decorative Brass Photo Corners~ These will not protect a corner as they are flat, they are strictly for an elegant decorative look.  They are beautifully embossed with flowers and stems.  You can adhere with your favorite adhesive or Crafter's Ultimate or Crafters Incredibly Tacky.  It measures approx,  1 1/8" at its widest and 5/8" at the peak of the triangle.  It will provide you with an elegant, finished looking project.  They are made of raw brass.  Pkg. 8.


Functional Copper Corner Protectors~ These are the same size and dimension as the gold protectors above but come in a bright copper color.  The scan- try as hard as I could- just does not reflect the true copper color.  It is a bright copper and 1/8" channel depth.  You could antique it by applying some black or brown acrylic paint and then rubbing it off -being careful to not rub off the paint in the grooved design.  Pkg 8.


Functional Corner Protectors, Nickel Silver Color~ These corners are a little more heavy weight metal than those at the very top of the page.  The leg measures approx. 1/2" and it has a nice scroll design etched in.  The channel is approx. 1/8" across and the sides are more rounded and the inside area is scalloped.  Pkg. 8


Functional Corner Protector, Bright Polished Gold Finish~This is a sturdy metal functional corner protector.  It measures approx. 5/8" long on the leg and the inside channel is approx. 1/4".  This is a larger channel for thicker books or covers.  It comes in a bright polished gold finish with a scrolly design pressed in to the corner.  Pkg. 8.


Back View Showing Prongs

Functional Gold Metal Corner Protector with Prongs~This sturdy metal corner comes with a decorative finish pressed into it.  To me it resembles a print from a screen in a screen door.  It also has a decorative arch in the design also.  It measures approx. 3/4" on the leg and the inside channel measures approx. 3/16".  It also has prongs on the back to grasp the corner.  Comes in a gold finish.
Pkg. 8.


Functional Gold Corner Protector with Slotted Design~ This protector is a sturdy metal that measures approx. 1" on the leg.  The inside channel measures approx. 1/4" which is a generous size for thicker books or covers. Overall this would be for a bigger cover.   It has a 4 open slot design and comes in a gold finish.  Pkg. 8.


Brass Decorative Elegant Scroll Corner~ This corner is strictly for looks.  It only sits on top of the corner, it does not wrap around it to protect it.  It has gorgeous scroll work on it and I think would work so well with the popular and beautiful scroll stamps that are out now.  The legs of the corner measure approx. 1 1/8" in length and the center portion that reaches into the center between the legs measures approx. 5/8".  Pkg. 4


Decorative Brass "Arrow" Corner~ This corner is strictly decorative.  It does not wrap around a corner to protect it.  It has a beautiful design on it, small dots all around it and floral type design in the center below the "arrow" portion.  The leg of the corners measure approx. 3/4" and the center "arrow" portion measures approx. 11/16" out.  I call it an arrow because it seems to point out.   Pkg. 8


La Femme Decorative Corner Cover~She's a beauty!  You can use her as a decorative feature on a corner of a book.  This charm measures approx. 1 3/8" high on each side of the leg and from the inside corner to middle she measures a little over 5/8" (this is the area over her face).   But, you could also use her as a charm embellishment on jewelry, books, frames, etc. because she has a hole on each side in her lovely locks of hair that you can attach ribbon, wire, jumpr rings, etc.  Versatile little lady.  This is not a flat charm, her head protudes forward for great detail.  Pkg. 4.


La Femme Decorative Corner, Matte  Sterling Silver Plated Finish~ This is the same corner as the one above but it is plated in a matte sterling silver finish.  The dimensions are the same.  It has a lot of detail to it but since the face stands out from the rest of it, my scanner tends to blur the background somewhat.  Pkg. 4.



Functional Plain Brass Corner~This is a good size corner.  The side legs measure approx. 7/8" and the channel measures a little more than approx. 1/8".  A quarter fits into it nicely with room to spare.  This is solid brass and is a bright gold tone finish.  It is also sturdy.
Pkg. of 4 corners.



Functional Brass Corner, Linen Design~This is made from brass and is a bright gold tone finish.  It looks silvery in the scan but it is not.  It has a pretty linen or cross hatch design embossed onto it.  The side legs measure approx. 7/8" and the channel measures a little more than 1/8".  A quarter will fit nicely into it with room to spare.
Pkg of 4 corners.



Functional Brass Corner, Fancy Flower/Leaf Design~ This corner is made from brass and is quite sturdy.  It has a pretty flower and leaf design embossed on it.  The side legs measure approx. 7/8" and the channel measures a little more than 1/8".  This corner fits nicely over a quarter with room to spare.  The scan makes it look lamost 2 tone but it is a bright gold tone finish all over. 
Pkg. of 4 corners.


Metal Decorative Floral Corners~Lightweight metal corners to add decoration to your books, cards, etc.  The leaf and floral design is slightly raised and is a deep brass ox color with tinges of gold on the raised ares.  The leg of the corner measures 1 3/8" long.  Pkg of 2 corners.


Functional Plain Brass Corner Protector-Gold Tone~This corner is a pretty gold tone color.  The leg measures approx. 5/16" long.  If you are unsure about the size, just get your ruler out and draw a line 5/16" long and 5/16" high and you will see what it looks like.  The channel measures approx. 1/16" so it will be for thin books and projects.  Pkg. 8.


Functional Plain Silver Corner, Small~ This corner measures 1/2" long on each leg of the corner.  The inside channel measures 1/8".  So what the corner slides over should be no more than 1/8" thick.  This is a bright silver color.  The sides of the corner are not high, just a little more than 1/16".  It still protects the corner.  You might choose this style is you just want some protection but don't want the corner itself to stand out on your project.  Package of 8 corners.


Functional Brass Corner, Gold Tone, Small~  This corner is the same as the silver one above- just in the gold tone.  All the measurements are the same also.
Package of 8 corners.


Decorative Bold Ornate Brass Floral Corner~This scan just does not do this charm justice.  It is so pretty and different.  It is just a decorative corner- it will not protect the edges of a book or project. Each leg measures approx. 1 7/16" in length- so this is height and width.  The width of each leg is approx. 3/8".  It is ornately decorated with raised flowers and leaves.  Will be a stunning addition to any book or project.    Pkg of 4 corners.


Domino with portion of brass corner above.  I used the Tim Holtz scissors (great for metal) and cut this corner into 3 pieces at each "joint".  A great way to embellish any project and make your crafting dollars go a little further. 

Sue Anne McConnell Sample

Sue Ann McConnell sent a picture of her creation using this corner charm above and ran with the idea of cutting it into several pieces.  I have several other samples of her work on the ornate ornamentals page.  Her items are very unique and earthy.  I am truly inspired by them.  The antique application on the charm just makes it pop!


Plain Brass Functional Corner-Steel Look~This corner measures approx. 5/8" on each leg and approx. 5/16" from the corner point to the center point.  The channel depth is 1/4"Although it is brass it looks like steel-a silvery color and depending on how the light hits it, it sometimes looks gray or like pewter.  There is a picture of how the back looks.  Many of the corners are identical size front an back but this one -best way to describe the look is like a backward "c" and made from a heavier brass- very durable.  Pkg of 8 corners.  PLEASE NOTE-this is raw steel- it will and is rusting as we speak- so you will have to seal it to prevent rusting...unless you want that look.


This is a picture of the back of the corner listed above.


Back of Large Steel Corner

Larger Steel Corner~ This is just like the corner right above this, but in a larger size.  The legs measures 1" long on each side, the channel depth is 1/4"- which means you can have a corner or book that approx. 1/4" thick and this should slide over it. Made of steel.  The front of the corner - from the side edge to inside edge measures approx. 3/8" wide.  Package of 4 corners.



Flirty Scrolly Functional Corner~This brass corner has a leg measurement of approx. 1/2" so it is a small corner.  It is a fully functional corner and the inside width is generous at 1/4".  You will notice it comes up on the side square and then opens up wider.  I have a picture of what it looks like on its side.  It has a beautiful scroll on the front so it looks very classy.  It comes with a blue protective film over it that has to be peeled off.  Sold per package of 8 corners.


Lovely Flower & Vines Decorative Brass Corner Cover~This is a purely decorative corner, you would just adhere it to your book or project using your favorite Articus Studio adhesive.  It is a generous corner measuring approx. 1 3/16" on the leg extending out to each side and approx. 3/8" wide -top to bottom.  It has so much detail with the flower in the center and the vines or scrolls extending out onto the leg of the corner and sloping nicely at the point.  Pkg of 4


Functrional Brass Corner Protector, Striped Design~This is a pretty little corner and unusual that I could find it in both brass and nickel silver tones.  It measures approx. 1/2" long along the leg- the part that would go up and down the side of the book.  The channel width is approx. 1/8" wide-so your book cover will need to be this thick or less.  It also measures approx 1/4" from the corner of the corner to the inside V.  So this is a smaller corner in that it does not cover a lot of surface space on your book.  Packge of 8 corners.
Currently only the gold tone is available

Silver Nickel Tone Striped Corner~ Pkg 8
OUT OF STOCK~ $1.69  Unsure how long will take to get back in stock  9-13-11

Gold Tone Striped Corner Protector, Pkg 8~  $1.69


Antique Gold Tone Functional Corner Protector, Open Triangle Style~This is a larger corner- meaning it will cover more surface area on the book cover.   The leg of the corner measures approx. 1 1/8" long.  The channel depth measures approx. 1/8" wide.  So it will slide over a book cover that measures no more than 1/8" thick
Pkg of 8 corners. 


Functional Plain Nickel Tone Corner Protector~This corner is basic coverage for your book cover- not much decoration to it.  The leg measures approx. 3/4" but it does have a round corner to it so is a little deceptive-probably just a tad longer.  The sides of the corner are also rounded.  The channel depth is approx. 1/8".  The mfg uses 13/16 x 13/16" as their measurement.  Pkg. 8.


Functional Corner with Oval Openings~This corner measures approx. 13/16" long on the leg- the part extending to the right and down.  The channel opening- the part that slides over your book is approx. 3/16" wide.  The edges are rounded so keep in mind you will loose some of the channel opening as it comes to the edge so use for books measuring a little less than the 3/16" opening- I would suggest 1/16".  The cover is the same on both sides, the oval openings will show on the front and inside of the book cover. 
Package of 8 corners.
Comes in solid black or antique nickel

Antique Nickel Corner with Cut Outs, Pkg 8
As shown in Picture     $1.79


Also available in Solid Black Finish, Pkg 8


Decorative Ornate Filigree Corner~This is a decorative corner to add pop and zing to your books, scrapbooks, etc.  Use it as an embellishment under a word or picture to highlight that also-I would use it this way with the center pointing up or down.  It measures approx. 1 1/8" on the side or legs.  Very ornate with swirly scroll work and a flower at the center point.  Pkg of 4 corners.


Decorative Solid Floral Corner~This will add a bold statement to your books, scrapbooks, etc.  The corner measures approx. 1 1/8" along the legs or side of the corner.  The bold flower design is raised and will allow for antiquing of this corner by adding some acrylic paint and almost immediately wiping it off.  This will allow some of the paint to lie in the recessed areas of the corner and still allow the pretty brass to show through.  You could also use your alcohol inks and Staz-on Inks to color the metal.  Pkg of 4 corners.


Scallopy Decorative Corner~This ornate corner has beautifully curved and scalloped edging.  It also reminds me of ocean waves. At the base the curve protrudes out -the whole corner is very textural from the swirls, to beading and curling.  Made of natural brass, gold color.  Made in the USA.  Package of 4 corners.


Functional Large Brass Corner~ This picture shows both the front and back of this corner.  It measures approx. 1" on the legs, which go up from the center of the corner.  It will accommodate book board or other material you want to add a corner to up to 1/4".  As you can see, the back of the corner will need to be crimped down with pliers.  You can use pliers from home by placing a heavy piece of fabric like denim between pliers and the corner before crimping down on the corner.  This prevents the teeth of the pliers from marring the metal.  You can also use the pliers we have on the page that has an acrylic piece over the teeth of the pliers.  The corner comes with a protective blue film over it, so you will have to remove that before use (it comes off very easy).
Package of 8 corners.


Ornate Decorative Brass Metal Corner Protector~ This is a very ornately patterned decorative corner.  This means it just sits there and looks pretty, it does not wrap around the book corner.  It measures approx. 1" across the corner at its widest and it measures 3/4" on the side legs.  This would be a great corner to add color to, it would really sink down into this bold design.  Sold in a package of 4 corners. 


Soft Jaw Nylon Coated Pliers-These are flat pliers that have a plastic cover over the metal to protect your metal wire, jewelry and other metal items from being marred by metal on metal.  It also has the soft comfort grip handles.  It is approx 5 1/2" long. 
Use these kind of pliers when you want to crimp down a corner or other metal.  You can also use regular pliers but you will have to cover the teeth with a heavy material like denim to prevent marring your metal.

PLEASE make sure your Paypal ADDRESS is CORRECT before placing your order.  Thanks!  It also helps to have a correct email address if I need to contact you re your order.  Thanks.
