Ok ....so back to school has to be the best time for craftsters lol
When else can ya get glue for 17 cents a bottle and glue sticks 25 cents each........

So, I don't know if you have seen the commercial where the kid doesn't want to do his school project and then mom gets him Crayola Total Tools and yada yada life is great Tongue

Well I picked one up from the store called Ultimate Cutter....it was under $4 and comes with a small little cutting mat to put under paper.

I have tried it on a few things....
You really have to leave the mat under it (cuts better)...does a couple sheets of newspaper at a time..regular paper is ok too.It is not great on cardstock...it just kinda scores it, doesn't cut through.
It cuts freezer paper, but isn't as awesome as I thought it would be.

My 2 cents only of course...thought I'd share.
Anyone else played/used anything fun lately?

my newest toy is one of those clover irons with the really small tip for ironing in small places. i love it! i got the clover iron II...it was more expensive than the original, but i had a 40% off coupon at joann's and this one had interchangeable irons that are different sizes/shapes to fit your project. of course, you have to buy those interchangeable irons, but it's still a neat idea and i'm a sucker for cool sewing gadgets.

not really related to crayola total tools, but it's fun thing for lately!

I bought myself a riveting hammer. Now I don't have to put off my riveting projects until I have class time.  Grin

It's a teeny hammer that I use to flatten the ends of 20g wire when joining two or more pieces of material together.
