Recently I realized that needed a different quilling tool. I thought I had found it, the toothpick. I still like the toothpick and think it is an easy, cheap, and readily available quilling tool.
But, I had to share with everyone another great tool that I found. I have this craft knife set…from somewhere..perhaps Hobby Lobby from years ago. I typically use this only as an exacto knife when the box cutter isn’t delicate enough.
Recently, I was using it to create a Valentine’s card. I needed to use one of the embossing tips. I thought that the rest of the tips were pointy, but decided to check them out!
Guess what? The first (empty space) tip is a quilling tool! So, now I have found a quilling tool with a great soft handle, very sturdy, with a slit that is big enough for all the types of paper I use! Sweet!
Amazing what you might find hidden in your craft room, worth checking out all the nooks and crannies.
