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!
I LOVE this paper piercer. I wasn't really sure what I would use it for but it was on sale and I was placing an order anyway so I bought. And I use it for everything and anything! It's great when working with small embellishments because you can use it to slide them into place or hold them down while working. It's also good for hard to reach places that your hole punches just won't reach!
