Envelope Punch Board
Now it’s even easier to create custom envelopes in over 60 different sizes with any paper you choose.
The Envelope Punch Board is the easiest way to create envelopes. It helps you create envelopes without having to trim your paper multiple times and the handy score guide eliminates the need for repeated measuring. Simply select your envelope size, trim your paper once, and then follow the grid printed on the board to punch, score, rotate, and fold. The Envelope Punch Board includes a bone folder (stored conveniently on the Punch Board), measurement chart, and a corner rounding punch. The Envelope Punch Board (MSRP $19.99) is available in January.
2 Edge Punch
The easy-to-use button system helps you create unique border strips and decorative edges by changing modes, literally with the switch of a button. Combine this tool with the Mini 8 Punch to create full page designs in multiple sizes. The Mini 8 Punch creates unique corners on the page and the 2 Edge Punch creates the page borders. A color coded alignment guide helps to correctly place the paper on the tool when using both the Mini 8 and 2 Edge Punch, so the result is perfect punching every time. Look for six unique punch designs and easily lock the punch handle for convenient storage. The 2 Edge Punch (MSRP $19.99) is available at a store near you this spring.
The Crop-A-Dile that you have grown to love just got even better. It’s still a powerhouse of strength cutting through paper, cardstock, think book board, thin tin, plastic, and more, in addition to punching 1/8” and 3/16” size holes. But, now you can do all of that and more with a 87mm – instead of a 125 mm – reach, so your hands will be sure to thank you. With 8 tools in one, the Crop-A-Dile not only punches holes, but sets eyelets, snaps, and washer combos and it does all of this leaving a smooth edged finish on both sides. The sliding click alignment guide – in both inches and centimeters – allows for precision hole and eyelet spacing. The rubber finger grips make it even more comfortable to use and the locking mechanism makes it easier to store. Look for removable color coordinated coded cubes make it even easier work on use the Crop-A-Dile for a variety of projects – whether that’s punching or setting eyelets in a variety of sizes. The new and improved Crop-A-Dile is not just for scrapbooking and papercrafting anymore. Instead, use it for office, organization, crafting, cardmaking, and more.
