How to use the new Sizzix Craft Tools?
The Sizzix Surfacez Craft Tool Set is a staple every crafter needs. This clever collection of tool heads allows crafters to make the most of their materials.
The Trimmer is great for cutting large paper surfaces down to size, ahead of die-cutting perhaps. While the Craft Knife gives a more precise cut, for creating card blanks ahead of cardmaking or maybe for fussy cutting elements. Offering something different is the Distress head which can create a distressed effect on the edge of your papercrafts.
What's more, the blade on the Craft Knife and the Trimmer are interchangeable, meaning you can switch the blade from the craft knife to the trimmer when the blade tip eventually becomes blunted this is because the Craft Knife uses the tip of the blade whereas the trimmer uses the center of the blade
The Sizzix Effectz Craft Tool Set is brilliant for creating a range of different effects on your crafts, from cards to scrapbooks you can create with the mediums from the Sizzix Effectz Range.
The brayer allows for an even application of paints with a removable roller for easy clean up and finger placement for comfy use. While the Short Palette Knife makes it easy to mix together paints and pastes and the Long Palette Knife can be used for spreading mediums and creating a splattering effect on art and craft projects.
The Sizzix Intricate Craft Tool Set is a fantastic aid for creating with craft embellishments. From the Pick-Up Tool with a tacky end that allows easy pick up of embellishments like gems and sequins, to the Push Tool which is great for manipulating into place small die-cuts and embellishments into place.
Papercrafting often requires the use of adhesives and with the clever adhesive remover, you can ensure your papercrafts look perfect by cleaning up any unwanted glue residue.
