It's day three of my Valentine posts, celebrating products I love. This tool set comes in handy for many different uses. I have three of them...
First, I use it to poke holes through layers of paper when I am adding a brad embellishment. It make a quick and clean hole for easier embellishing. I make sure I have the pad behind my paper to protect the surface I am working on.
Second, I use it to pick up, transfer and place smaller, self adhesive embellishments such as sparkles or pearls. By carefully sliding the point of the tool under the item like a sparkle, it will stick to the point and remove from its carrier sheet. Then I move the point to the area I want to place the sparkle, set it on the paper and then hold the sparkle in place with a finger from my other hand and slide the point out and it sticks...right where I want it!
Third, if I want to stitch on my paper or just add a design of faux stitching, I use the paper piercer with the ruler or stitch guide to to pre-poke the holes creating my design. Then I use a journaling pen to "connect the dots" for faux stitching or thread and needle to complete the design. I have also just left the pattern of holes as a design itself.
Fourth, I am sure I have left out some my the uses for this tool as I grab it often for assistance in my creating. What would you use it for?
