Like all of the Tim Holtz products, this tiny attacher is super addition to the crafter's arsenal. The tool itself is easy to operate, needing just a gentle squeeze to place a staple, even through multiple layers. It doesn't take a large hand to use it either. I have small hands and find it easy to hold and manipulate with just one hand. It's also very easy to load and has a better reach than most mini-staplers.
The staples themselves are much smaller (about 1/4") than standard staples. This makes them easy to hide in and among embellishments or tuck into tight spaces. They're only available in silver, but if you do want them to show on the front of a card or scrapbook page, it's easy to color them with a permanent marker or some other permanent ink so that they can match your color scheme.
I've been very pleased with the Tiny Attacher so far and would recommend it highly for quickly and easily attaching layers or embellishments.
This is a wonderful new product that I just had to have! I love to use ribbon on my cards but hate using the regular stapler, even the mini stapler didn't work so well... When I saw this I had to have it and I used it on several of my cards already... it's the perfect size for stapling ribbon! It's a 1/4 inch staple and you get these tiny staples and it works wonderfully... It's also quite comfortable in my hand.... Very easy to load and I can see exactly were I'm putting the staples... I've been showing it off to everyone and telling them if you need a stapler for ribbon this is it! Now when I put my cards together I try to find ways to add more ribbon just so I can keep using it... This is a must have for every cardmaker/scrapbooker out there who loves to use ribbon but hates the big staplers...
I didn't even want one of these-- I mean, who needs ONE more stapler right? WRONG! This is the funnest tool I've used recently! The rubber handles make it comfortable to hold and use. The long nose makes it easy to get into further into your layout without having to juggle your page or pictures. The size of the staples is just perfect for ribbons, stickers, edging, anything you need to do to put the finishing touches on your projects. And with the refill you get 1550 staples- which will last a while, hopefully! ;)
