Playing with Craft Tools

Actually, I’ve been playing with my new craft tool toys. The Zutter binding machine has given me endless possibilities for making bound books for myself as well as allowing me to create special albums for gifts. I like that the binding rings come in various colors and sizes. It’s also nice that the machine is small because it leaves me space for more craft supplies. I love the new flower punches by Punch Magic that punch out paper shapes to fold into 3-D flowers. These dimensional flowers can quickly turn a blank card into a handmade creation by just adding a stamped message, glitter glue, and ribbons. I am pleased with myself when I can recycle anything. These punches allow me to turn cards sent to me into cards to send to others. Sometimes I use the wrapping paper or birthday card that someone gives me and I make a recycled thank you card for that person. That person can then cut off the front of the card and attach it to a blank card and we can both feel good about saving paper. Save a tree, recycle!
