I love my mat pack (Stampin’ Up item number 105826) and piercing tool (Stampin’ Up item number 116631). I’ve used them so much so I thought I would do a little tool time segment on them.
The mat pack comes with a self healing mat, foam mat and paper piercing template. The template is priceless. It keeps those pierced rows of holes in your card stock on the straight and narrow. 🙂
To make a row of pierced holes, put the foam mat on the self healing mat. Place your card stock on top of the mats and then just line the template up and poke the piercing tool in the holes on the template.
There is a set of holes on the template that are close together and then another set that are further apart.
There are holes in the template that can be used with a marker to create dots in a row.
The large holes in the template are really to be used lining eyelets up straight. There are holes that for the smaller eyelets and larger holes for the large eyelets.
Add a white gel pen to make faux stitching with your pierced holes. Just make a dash in between the pierced holes.
I know there are many uses for these handy tools. If you want to share your unique use, please share it below in the comments section.
That’s all for today.
Until my next post. . . . . . . . .
