Tuesday's Tool or Technique...

Today's Tool - Crimper #101618

This crimper makes it easy to add dimension and texture to any project you’re stamping. Just hold the crimper in one hand, feed the end of the paper into the rollers, and turn the key. It takes paper up to 6-1/2" wide—enough for the largest card! It can crimp On Board chipboard, too.

■ Metal and plastic construction

■ Comfort-molded handle and turnkey

■ Requires very little hand pressure

These are just a few pictures to show you what the crimper can add to your projects. The first two pictures are of a card made out of an envelope. By crimping the bottom it makes it a bit smaller and it will fit in the top part better. The second picture is just a quick & simple belly band made from Designer Paper to decorate a box of Conversation Hearts for Valentines Day. There are so many ways to dress up a card, scrapbook page, or even a project using the crimper!

Thanks for commenting on my blog today Kendra! I love your site and will be following along. Now after seeing your Crimper posts, I guess I need to add that to my long wish list now as well!
