dritzawl.jpg

Dritz Ergonomic Tapered Awl~ The ergonomic design and thick handle with rounded soft end makes poking holes a dream.  You can use for fabric, but it is great for bookmakers, scrapbookers for eyelets and more and jewelry makers for putting holes in your projects.  The end of the handle removes to become the protective cap- great around the home but a great way if you carry your supplies out of the house. 
$7.99

TIP:  I have checked into some Teflon Bone Folders.  The ones currently on the market are very expensive and it is the material that makes them that way.  You are paying for a lot of the qualities of the material that are irrevelant to our use of the bone folder.
I do love the fact that the teflon bone folders will not leave a mark when you are folding cardstock and other papers.  But......I have come up with an inexpensive solution.  If you use the teflon sheet that I carry, lay it over your fold, use this bone folder over it and you will NOT leave a mark on your paper!  Yeah me!

Non Stick Craft Sheet~ All the info is mentioned above. (actually all this info is listed on the link below for this page)   Did I mention that this price is about equal to the wholesale price of the other company??
$5.35 

For all the info on the non stick teflon sheet, please check this link

Book Binding Needles~ Pkg. of 5 Needles.

rulruse.jpg

C-Thru Brand Metal Ruler~ Their rulers have been a favorite of mine for a long time.  This metal ruler is flexible stainless steel and has a non skid cork backing on it.   Has a convenient hole on top for hanging.  Metal rulers are great especially if you like to use an Exacto knife to cut.  You can run the Exacto along the edge of a metal ruler and it won't cut into it.  It is not C-Thru-that is the brand name.
$3.00

hollowholepunch.jpg

Hole Punch Set~  This heavy duty six piece set contains the following size hole diameters -
1/8", 5/32", 3/16", 7/32", 1/4", 5/16".  To use, just position where you desire hole to be and hit the top with a hammer.
Simple, portable and efficient.
$6.75

scissorsuse.jpg

4" Micro Scissors~ I have used these scissors for a number of years now for smaller cuts and they work very well and I have not had any problem with them.  They are ideal for cutting small items or intricate designs.  I have them at a new price too, much lower than my previous supplier.
$1.49

awluse.jpg

Metal Awl~ That's the technical term, or call it a hole reamer.  It measures 6" long and the reaming tip seems to be quite strong.  Use it for book board, chip board, fabric, paper, clay, etc.  This is what is referred to as a "light duty" awl- if you have really heavy paper or board you need a heavy duty awl- those are shown further down this page.  See the tip below to make this more user friendly.
$1.99

TIP~  To make this awl (shown above) more user friendly- sometimes if you are using an awl similar to this quite often, the palm of your hand may become sore.  I found that to be true when making multiple books, so I took some inexpensive felt, cut it into strips- maybe about 1/2" to 3/4" wide and began to wrap the felt tightly around the handle of the awl, covering the tip and also scaling it down with less wraps toward the bottom of it.  Once I got enough felt around it that it felt good in my hand, I wrapped it all over in black electrical tape and secured it to the metal.  It made it much more comfortable to use in my hand.
I have seen other people cover tools in polymer clay- that works fine too. 

misteruse.jpg

Mini Misters~ These are a great tool to have handy but usually are sold in a pack of 3.  Not everyone wants or can use 3 of them or may just want to try them to see if they like them- so these are sold individually.  You can use these in so many different ways- use with water or your favorite medium like alcohol inks.  Some other ways to use them are:  with distress inks to create unique backgrounds; for setting Perfect Pearls pigment powders; activiate watercolor paints or blend watercolor pencils; create a faux watercolor look by misting directly onto stamp; keep metal clays moist while working; as a release agent with polymer clays to mist molds, brayers, texture plates and more; mix with Adirondack acrylics to creat paint glazes.  That should keep you busy for awhile.  They are ideal for travel too and measure approx. 4" high (including cap) and approx. 9/16" in diameter.
Sold individually. (my choice of color-but most are clear looking ones)

Eyelet Setting Tool 4 Pc. Kit~Heavy duty set for setting 1/8"; 5/32"; 3/16" & 1/4".  Should easily meet all your eyelet setting needs.
$6.75

shankuse.jpg

Button Shank Nippers~You can stretch your embelllishment options with these professional quality 4 1/2" end nippers.  Use them to cut off button hanks and then glue the flat backed buttons to your work. They are also great for cutting wire.  They are made of heat treated steel, sturdy spring load action, precision machined jaws.  They also have a limited lifetime warranty from the mfg.

Bent Nose Tweezers~ When you absolutely need precision placement, delicate paper picked up or a dainty little object moved, this is your tool.  Stainless steel.  It is so nice to have the right tool on hand when you need it.
$1.25 

wateruse.jpg

Aqua-Flo Water Brush~ These are  a wonderful and useful product.  I had forgotten how great they were until I was using them again at a recent convention.  They are great for applying your Twinkiling H2o"s, watercolors, watercolor pencils or crayons, etc.  These are made by Royal Langnickel, the company who has been manufacturing fine artists brushes for many years.  They come in a package of 3 in 3 sizes, small, medium and large.  It has instructions on the back for their use and the ways you can fill them with water.   These are great to use with kids,  I recently used them with my 5 yr old and 3 yr old grand-daughters to watercolor and it was great since the water was contained- no spill!
$5.75

11603use.jpg

Alvin Basic Bow Compass & Divider~This is a handy tool for keeping equal distance between holes for book binders, eyelet setting and prongs.  It is designed with a fiberglass rig head and pivot design for smooth, firm adjustment.  Accurate center wheel adjusts quickly and easily for circles up to 10" in diameter.  Built in spindle stop prevesnt over extension.  Supplies with extra leaad, needle point and T-bolt.  Matte nickel finish resists stains and tarnishing.  From my point of view- easy to use- I had never used one before- by turning the center wheel, it opens and closes the legs and then it will lock into position so that you can use it to determine accurate distance between holes.  Very slick.  Also comes in a nice plastic carrying/storage case.  Made in Germany.
$14.95


ATTN:  MAC Users & Ipod Phone Users~
For some reason Mac/Ipods & Paypal do not work well together.  For some Mac & Ipod users, the Paypal cart will dump after several things are added to the cart.  I might suggest you write the item numbers down that come up when you "add to cart".  If it does dump, you can call -740-477-1238 or email your order c_byers1@msn.com.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  I have notified Paypal of this problem, but so far it has not been fixed.
 
 
 
PLEASE make sure your Paypal ADDRESS is CORRECT before placing your order.  Thanks!  It also helps to have a correct email address if I need to contact you re your order.  Thanks.
 
~International Customers~
When checking out with Paypal, please add your phone number.  The United States Postal Service is requiring that for all international shipments now.
Thanks
ANY large dollar order~~
The shipping on every order goes up with the total of the sale.  Many of the things are small so the larger shipping is not warranted, so then I refund the difference.
If you have a question on shipping please contact me at

This does not apply to the standard shipping charge-just the larger orders when the shipping charge is at higher cost.
