Essential Tools Part 3

Dear Fellow Crafters,

Part 3 of our series is here! Enjoy.

Piercing Tool: The English crafters call this a “pokey tool” because, well, it does resemble one. The tool is designed to pierce holes in paper to create a mosaic effect. Before Spellbinders designed the tool we all know and love, we used this one to remove the excess paper from dies.

Roll Away Tool: This tool, again designed by our friends from the UK, has a roller with a high-tack surface. Its sole purpose is to remove excess paper from dies and to keep the work surface clean We, in the US call it a lint tool.

Quilling Tool: A quilling tool aids in creating a coiled object, often a flower.

Scoring Board:  I bought one of these last year and really like it. The board has rulers along two edges that allow you to create accurate score lines for folding base cards. Some boards allow you to even create envelopes.

Stencil brush: This brush allows you to apply paint to stencils. The brush has short bristles so that any paint will not bleed under the stencil.

Tweezers: Perfect for applying small embellishments and to keep your fingers from burning when heat embossing card stock.
