REVIEW

I love Making Memories for their embellishments. I always come home with lots of the Making Memories brads and eyelets because they’re so colorful and inexpensive. I also just discovered that Making Memories sells colored staples that fit in a regular stapler – I bought me a package and have been using them like crazy – I like the look of the fat staples (using the Fastenater) with some skinny Making Memories staples.

So anyway, Making Memories has a huge selection of scrapbooking embellishments, and to help you actually use them is the Tool Kit II, an 18 piece tool set that will enable you to use all kinds of embellishments and will make general crafting much easier.

Included in the Tool Kit II is a combo paper piercer/stylus (for embossing or scoring), a hammer, a craft knife, 3 different sized hole punches and magnetic eyelet setting tips (for setting eyelets and snaps), scissors, tweezers, glue, an emery board, a 4″x4″ setting mat, a 6″ metal ruler, and a storage tin. Whew. There’s a lot of good stuff packed into this one tool kit!

Each of these tools serve a very important function. They’re sturdy and feel substantial in your hand – an important quality for a tool to have. These tools are going to last through years of use and crafting. And each one has a pretty green fat,  rubbery grip that is comfortable and easy to hold.

The hole punch/eyelet setter is great – it comes with 3 different sized tips, and the hammer is heavy duty and makes setting the eyelets a clean and quick process. The tips are magnetized so they slip into the hole without having to be screwed on or anything, so switching back and forth between tips is super fast and easy.

And my favorite piece of this tool set is the craft tweezers – they’re curved, allowing you to get in tight spaces and do some really fine precision work, and once you pick something up, the tweezers hold it there for you – they work kind of backwards – it’s awesome! The tweezers are especially great for tying little knots and picking up and placing small and fragile embellishments. They’re also great for jewelry making and lots of other little household uses.

With the Tool Kit II, you’re going to be set to craft! (You can watch a short video here to see how it all works,)

THE PRIZE

One reader will win the NEW Tool Kit II from Making Memories.

This is a must have tool. Everything is together and I would be more organized. I just love MM products. I love their Slice, but haven’t been able to get it yet. I just love the shapes of all their border punches. Thanks so much for a chance.

9 Jennifer March 11, 2009 at 7:16 am

I could not find any shape makers, but if I did I am sure they would be awesome. MM knows how to make beautiful things. My favorite right now is the Noteworthy paper line, love the colors and it works great on all my little girl pages.

10 Sara-Jane March 11, 2009 at 7:26 am

I love the slot punch. I love using ribbons and this type of tool would make it easier to add some beautiful ribbon on my cards and pages!

11 Jacky March 11, 2009 at 8:51 am

Oh how badly I want this tool kit…I always wanted the first one, but this would be even better! I am a big paper-crafter, and I even have an Etsy shop to sell my cards, so this would be great to have! =)

12 Michelle March 11, 2009 at 8:59 am

I’m not sure what you meant by favorite shape maker, but I do think their tag maker is amazing. Seems like a lot of fun, and you can always find something to do with a tag!

I love making memories products! I have many of them and am very pleased with them ( I have 2 embellishment centers on my wall and love them). Most of my embellishments are from MM too.

I like the Slice and am very interested in learning more about it. I really want to see how it works. I’d love to see a hands on demonstration of it. It seems like it would be a wondeful tool to cut shapes.

I also would love the set of tools…I have been eyeing them for a while.
