When I first saw this little tool, I didn't think much of it. However, as I have gotten older :0( I gave it a second thought, ordered it, and now find it quite useful!! It is actually three tools in one. I ordered it because, now that arthritis has set it, tool #1, the sticky end, is very useful. When I am making cards with small die cuts, pearls, or other jewels, the sticky end it terrific. One note, I had a terribly time getting the top of until I realized that it just pulls off. Don't worry about unswrewing it! With the sticky end, just touch your gemstone, for examply, and voila!, you've got it! On the other end, you've got two tools: a pointy end and a spatula (?) end. Both are very useful. The spatula end is particularly helpful for getting Cricut die cuts off of the mat. The pointy end I've found to be helpful in pointing out cut made from Spellbinders cuts. The tool is multifuctional; hence, the price is quite reasonable. Pick one up and discover many uses!
As I started working on more and more cards, I became frustrated with handling the little decorative pieces. No improvisation would work. I had to try this when I saw it used during a video tutorial. The "tool" that lives in the barrel is very handy and the "sticky stuff" works very well. It is important to note that there is not a refill for the "sticky stuff", so investing 2 or 3 of these on sale at scrapcook.com will keep you happy for a long time. Not sure how I managed without it.
i l.o.v.e. this tool, seriously. I don't know why I waited so long to get it, but now that I have it, I use it on EVERY project I create. It's so perfect for getting glue dots in the right place, attaching small items to my page, like sequins or the the "dots" on "i's" from very small alpha letters. I even use the back end as a rub-on tool and the sticky end is awesome for picking little trash bits our of my carpet after a long scrapping session :) GET ONE. You won't be sorry.
This tool is just amazing for rhinestone placement. One end is sticky to let you pick up the stones or other small embellishment. The other end is a double sided pick. It comes out so you can use it while you use the sticky side. It has a pointy end and a beveled end to help you remove the object from the sticky side. This tool has made using rhinestone templates so much easier!
