Today I wanted to show you my favorite tool for paper stitching!
As you can see here in this photo below, I am creating a zig zag border around my page.
Here is the finished page on the cover of my album. I love the added detail that stitching creates!
Here are the lovely tools that I used to create this.
The Sew Easy tool, which I have the zig zag head showing in this photo. See the little spikes? That is what punches through your paper to create your stitching holes. Also you see the lovely pink piercing mat. It really is a necessity for this! Also needed is a pink ruler that you see at the top of the photo and that is a guide so that your piercing tool can pierce a straight line.
You can see in this photo what the Sew Easy piercing tool really looks like. A very simple tool with interchangable heads.
There is also a line of floss available in a variety of shades to use, but DMC works fine too.
It's so simple just to roll the piercer across the paper and then take the needle and thread and start stitching on the page.
A little time consuming, but a great project to do while watching tv.
I took a few photos at my local scrapbook store so that you could see the wide variety of accessories.
I do really like the thickness of their line of Sew Easy Floss. The piercer tool comes with a needle, but you can also buy extras.
Just looks at all the cool designs you can pierce! I can't wait to collect them all!
Have a wonderful day, Lindsey
