As I have said from the beginning, I am new to this craft so my tools are few and far between. One tool that I have wanted was a paper crimper. The one I saw in a book was just a simple set of gears on a block of wood. That's easy!
So off I go on a hunt around the house for some gears that weren't being used. No luck, or I just wasn't thinking properly. I couldn't even find an old VHS tape to take apart!
Then my dear husband comes to the rescue. An old CD cleaner.
It was perfect!
A little awkward to use but the end result is exactly as I wanted.
But then I saw this from a google image search:
Now I MUST HAVE!!! =)
