Crafter's Gear

A blog that reviews tools used by papercrafters


Paper distress edger by Tonic Studios


Happy Friday!!!
Today’s product review is the Tonic Studios’ thread cutter and I know some of you might be scratching heads thinking how does a thread cutter relate to papercrafts…right? It’s because the Tonic Studios Tim Holtz 370 Paper Distresser is identical to the thread cutter!!! When I was new to papercraft I had no idea what a paper distresser tool actually looked like so I inquired at a local papercraft shop and was a bit shocked the shop helper suggested a thread cutter for the job…!! I must have displayed a “you must have mistaken me for a fool” look because she quickly reassured me the thread cutter is very capable of distressing paper edges and she was right!! There are several techniques and you can get the step-by step techniques on Scrapjazz. In image A the aged look result is quite unique and it is achieved in a very short amount of time.

The product features 7 recessed blades and kushgrip; easy and comfortable for the hand and it doubles as a thread cutter!! This is a vital gear if you are looking for special effects for you paprecrafting projects. This gear serves more than one purpose and reasonably priced therefore rakes in 5 stars. Thanks for reading and join me next time when we use the Cuttlebug in conjunction with the Fiskars Texture Plates.

Have a great weekend!!
