    TTC #4 Staples

    Welcome to the 4th task in the Tuesday Technique Challenge series.

    These challenges will push you to explore techniques and materials you may not normally use in your creations.

    Task for Tuesday Technique Challenge #4 is: Use staples on a layout or card.

    Once an everyday office item, staples are now a big item in the scrapping world. You can buy them in the original silver or now in a variety of colors. Staples are great for making a pocket, attaching ribbon, or just add a little touch here and there.

    Staples can even be dressed up!
    - Use Sharpie marker on a standard silver staple to give it some color
    - Take a staple out of the stapler, unbend one side, slide on 2 or 3 little beads, re-bend the edge, push through the paper into a mouse pad and push down the pieces in the back!

    Stitchify! Use the stapled in a functional manor (imake a pocket, attach ribbon, attach a journaling block, etc).

    For those of you that own a Fastenator, please feel free to use it instead of standard staples.

    When you post your item here, please list the supplies that you used (brand of patterned paper, type of embellishments, etc), so if someone loves one of your ideas they can find the supplies to lift it.

    End date for TTC #4 is October 3rd. And remember, you can combine challenges, so if you want to combine this with another challenge running, go right ahead!

    Have fun and get those creative juices flowing!

    I find a regular office stapler with silver staples is the best. Colored staples are pricey and the color tends to chip. Also any staples or staplers you buy at a scrapbook store will cost more than a Target or Staples store. And they have a shorter reach.

    Goofygirl and I each have one...I've used it once, she hasn't used it all.

    Time to break it out of the packages ladies!

    A Fastenator is basically a stapler that EK Success makes, but it uses about 1/8 inch wide staples and you can get the staples with different words and shapes on them.

    They even have Disney ones!

    There are two models - one that has a long reach and one that is more like a standard stapler. If you do not plan to put a staple in the middle of a 12x12 piece of paper there is really no need to spend the extra money on the long reach one (unless you have a coupon).

    I have seen them at AC Moores, though not the Disney bars. If you can't find the bars near you let me know, I have them at my store.


    Here is a layout with the Fastenator...they are a little hard to see, but they are one the tags. One reads Disney and the other reads Adventure.
