I'm always looking for safer tools for crafting for my children/grandchildren. I got this as soon as I seen the mini size as my first thought was this will be more "kid-friendly"- great for when my grandchildren or nieces/nephews or my friends children are doing crafting with me. Due to it's smaller size it's less cumbersome and more easy to handle/manage. It's safer in the hands of my grandchildren- therefore, I feel safer and more at ease.
*(Important footnote): As always, we alone know when and what to trust our kids with. I am always there to supervise them.
Love this little tool!
I actually have a total of 3 paper piercers...(However, of the 3, this one is my most favored).
It's smaller, but sturdier. Tiny, but gets the job done. It has a great point to it, with a wide, width grip!
I consider it part of my 'essential tools' and keep it either on my scrapdesk or in my desktop tote whenever I travel to crops!
Bonus = For less than $2, what's not to love!
...with a big impact! Small, convenient, sharp, with a lot of punch. Great when you need to make a hole anywhere on your page. Also great to assist in stitching on a page. I've even used mine when in a pinch-say when I need to pop up a corner, separate an unsuccessful perforation, popout a punch or get into a narrow space! Anyway you choose to use this petite tool, it sure ends up a big help!
