Did you know it could do all that?

Today's post is completely, entirely devoted to one of the most overlooked, and most useful tools (well, at least in this paper crafter's opinion): The Paper Piercer. MMPaperPiercer I know what you're thinking, "That tool? Why's that tool so great?" Well, let me just tell (and show you) a few of my favorite uses for it. Grandma S flower detail 2Piercing a hole where you want to place a brad makes life a lot easier. Here I pierced a hole through the center of paper flower, but this works anywhere you want to put a brad. ScrappyGlue Now, I know some of you may think this is abuse, but I use my paper piercer to de-gunk my liquid glue bottles when they get stopped up. Works like magic! Grandma S stitching detail I really like to hand stitch on my layouts. Whether you do it free hand or with a template, pre-piercing your holes with a paper piercer makes hand stitching a breeze. Note that if you pair your piercer with a piercing mat, you won't put any holes or scratches in your table either.  4U Finally, if you like the look of stitching, but don't like all the work, you can just use your paper piercer to create a pretty design like the squares on this card.

If you have any more uses for the paper piercer that I'm missing, I'd love to hear all about them!

After years of keeping a large embroidery needle in my tool case, I was given a retractable paper piercer for Christmas. I use it to poke out the little pieces of paper in letter stickers and the alphas I cut out with my cricut.
