The Crafty Edger is a combined 12" (30.5cm) decorating gauge ruler and border punch craft tool.
By using the Crafty Edger you can punch out a series of 2" x 1" (5cm x 2.5cm) patterns creating a continuous decorative border.
The starter set comes with a very useful ribbon cassette, that is pretty on its own or can have ribbon fed through. I think it also looks like a picket fence!
The punches work best on light weight card. Additional cassettes can be purchased separately. The punches once loaded into the cassette can be used without being lined up on the punching guide. For best results use 110gsm - 180gsm craft paper, incorrect thickness of paper or card will result in the punch jamming.
There are now 3 corner punches that match the borders, instructions are included.
I like the fact that the cartridges lock into place so there is no chance of them moving which makes them much more accurate. The cartridges stack on top of each other so they are great for storage too. Another bonus is the paddle like punch handle that is a lot easier to press than a lot of border punches.
I demonstrated these at the Ross Papercraft show last month and let people try themselves, I knew they would love how easy they are to use too, even those with dexterity problems were surprised how easy they are to use.
We've now added all the Crafty Edgers to our website HERE and will have a lot with us at the GNPE show at Harrogate at the weekend.
Here are the cartridges that are currently available
I know, the pictures are big aren't they, I thought it would help you see the patterns better.
Thanks for visiting!
