Like all of the Tim Holtz products, this tiny attacher is super addition to the crafter's arsenal. The tool itself is easy to operate, needing just a gentle squeeze to place a staple, even through multiple layers. It doesn't take a large hand to use it either. I have small hands and find it easy to hold and manipulate with just one hand. It's also very easy to load and has a better reach than most mini-staplers.
The staples themselves are much smaller (about 1/4") than standard staples. This makes them easy to hide in and among embellishments or tuck into tight spaces. They're only available in silver, but if you do want them to show on the front of a card or scrapbook page, it's easy to color them with a permanent marker or some other permanent ink so that they can match your color scheme.
I've been very pleased with the Tiny Attacher so far and would recommend it highly for quickly and easily attaching layers or embellishments.
This stapler is fabulous, and just the right size. Those little staplers are so hard to work, and can't reach very far onto your page or your card, rendering them useless for anything farther than an inch from the edge. This little cutie will reach almost 3" from the edge, and it is sooooo easy to use. You will not go wrong by purchasing this stapler, and THANK YOU TIM for bringing this little jewel to us!! Everyone should own one of these!
I didn't even want one of these-- I mean, who needs ONE more stapler right? WRONG! This is the funnest tool I've used recently! The rubber handles make it comfortable to hold and use. The long nose makes it easy to get into further into your layout without having to juggle your page or pictures. The size of the staples is just perfect for ribbons, stickers, edging, anything you need to do to put the finishing touches on your projects. And with the refill you get 1550 staples- which will last a while, hopefully! ;)

This is a wonderful new product that I just had to have! I love to use ribbon on my cards but hate using the regular stapler, even the mini stapler didn't work so well... When I saw this I had to have it and I used it on several of my cards already... it's the perfect size for stapling ribbon! It's a 1/4 inch staple and you get these tiny staples and it works wonderfully... It's also quite comfortable in my hand.... Very easy to load and I can see exactly were I'm putting the staples... I've been showing it off to everyone and telling them if you need a stapler for ribbon this is it! Now when I put my cards together I try to find ways to add more ribbon just so I can keep using it... This is a must have for every cardmaker/scrapbooker out there who loves to use ribbon but hates the big staplers...
Easy to load, easy to squeeze, just plain easy to use. Works great when a normal stapler is just to big. I did a folded ribbon design and it turned out perfectly. This is something I can see using for many years to come. Can we get some colored staples to use with this?? Update - I've had this product for a while now and the stapler has locked itself up and refuses to work. I still have about half of my first box of staples to use - don't know what happened and the day it broke I stapled a few and nothing! It was cute in the beginning, but I really this item didn't last me a year! Very disappointing.
This is so cute and fun. I find myself looking for ways to use it on many layouts. The stapler itself is easy to use, the staple goes exactly where you want it to. The staples are tiny and add a really nice distress look to a card or layout and theya re easy to hide when I just want to attach a flower or ribbon. Tim Holtz always has great tools and this definately a favorite.

This little gadget is a wonderful tool, very lightweight and very easy to use attaching small objects such as chain or flowers to the layout or when creating layers. It either can enhance the layout or card project as a metal embellishment or if you'd prefer to cover it which it does very easily, you can also do that. Once you have it you'll wonder how you were without one!

OMGosh! This stapler and the staples are so cute! I wish I had one of these in my scrapping aresenal long before now. The size of these staples are perfect for layouts and cards. I have always felt that regular size staples were sometimes overbearing or tacky looking on some of my layouts. This size is just perfect. The reach is great, too! Until now, I have been using a mini-stapler from an office supply store, but it had no reach whatsoever. This is ideal.
When I saw this I just knew it would be perfect to use attaching things to cards and tags. The time size of the staples is perfect as they are easily hidden and with the long, narrow throat of the stapler it will be easy to get into areas that I can't get to any other way.
My only complaint is there were no instructions on how to load the staples, I figured it out by accident. Other than that I love this prodect.
I really wasnt sure if I would use this enough to justify purchasing it, but let me tell you, I use it ALL the time. I love the look of the little staples (small enough to use on cards) and I use it all the time to attach ribbon to layouts and cards. Of course the reach could be a little longer, but it is pretty long as it is. The replacement box of staples lasts a long time and I use it constantly.

I bought this because I'm participating in Ali Edwards class and I loved how she was able to attach embellishments to the page so simply and beautifully. I have already used it just for stapling a few personal documents together, and then to go back and fix previously completed layouts. I just love how small the staple is and the variety of things that can be done with it.
I use this to attach ribbons to pages and it is great for my page protectors for 3 ring binders that have a 2" X12" strip that keeps slipping out..I just find an inconspicuous place or apply a ribbon or flower or other embellishment and staple it to the page protector. I have been known to reattach pockets pulled out on my scrapbook tote too.
Great little stapler strong design went through 4 layes of flowers. no problem , 2 layer of foam.flexible plastic, med thick chipboard ( I don't think it will do the super heavy chipboard but med no problem whichis pretty strudy) about a 2" reach I'm lovin' this products no glue dots between flowers and I few ideas to work on.
Just exactly what I wanted! I love the tiny attacher. It works great, but more important, the staples are easy to hide--if that is what you want & they look great, if you don;t mind them showing. The tool itself is easy to use, feels goon in hand and small enough to carry in your crop bag.
Thanks, Tim! You've scored again!
I do not usually use exclamation points, but wow! I love the Tiny Attacher. I never really used a stapler on my pages before because things often shifted or they were difficult to tack down. This thing is great. You can staple with no problem--even very small items--and have confidence that you can be precise. Love it.
I debated buying this. I though, "how much difference can it make"? Well, the answer is a BIG ONE. I read Ali Edwards' review on her site and I totally agree. This is already my new "go to" tool for any small attaching that has to be done. It is easy to use, easy to load and the tiny staples look really great.
I purchased this from Scrapbook.com because our stores do not carry this and find that I LOVE the tiny attacher stapler. The tiny staples really do "hide" in the work. I just wish they would come out the a stapler with a further reach so can use with lace across a page. Another great idea from Tim Holtz!
I just purchased the Tiny Attacher! It works even easier than shown in the video!! The staples are super small and not bulky! They have a pretty strong hold for, considering their size. The refills are decently priced for the amount that you get! Great buy!!

I love the way this stapler fits so well in my hands. It squeezes very easily and has a decent reach. I also love the smaller size of the staples. They are so cute and perfect size for attatching ribbon to a layout. This has quickly become a favorite tool.
I've been looking at this for years and finally bought it. It is so perfect to attach ribbon or bows to anything. You will never see the tiny size unless you want them to show. So easy to attach everything. So glad I finally bought it and highly recommend it.
I got this tiny attacher to add embelishments to my scrapbook layouts and I have to say it is quickly becoming one of my favorite tools, I can attach the tiny staples to add flowers, photos, and even some types of metal. I highly recommend this item.
Only the best is what you expect from Tim Holtz and again, he comes through with this amazing little tool. It takes only minimum pressure, the tiny staples are very "substantial" and they attach smoothly. Bonus....they're just so darn cute!!
At first I didn't think I had a need for this, but then my friend bought her's and I just loved it! This is a very well made tool and I am very very pleased that I purchased it. It just seems to add that extra touch to my cards.
I bought this when Scrapbook.com mentioned it in the newsletter and as soon as it arrived I opened it and tried it out. It is WONDERFUL! So easy to use and the tiny staples are perfect for narrow ribbon. I highly recommend it.
The coolest tool that has come out on the market in a long time. Used at CKU in Tim Holtz class and it became my favorite this past week. Highly recommend it become one of the tools that goes with you everywhere. A must.
I M using this on every thing...
I LOVE IT.. It has its own little spot.. Right near my hand.. My cat is getting scared she might be next I M stapleing every thing..I dont usally do this But I M telling U I LOVE IT!!!
I love this little stapler. If you staple on a line, it's hardly visible. The staples are so small, a glued-on gem will hide them if you prefer. Purchase staple refills, you'll be surprised how often you use it.
What a great product... I love the tiny little staples... It is great for attaching little bows and I'm definately a bow lover. This is a must have produce. You will love it. Way to go Tim, you've done it again.
Tiny staples saves time in attaching things together and can be hidden by brads, stickers, and other embellishments if desired. Staples lie flat and, in some cases, are better than using regular adhesives.
This so handy! Love it! So much nicer than having the large staples especially when you're attaching something smaller! Tim Holtz has great stuff though so I am not surprised that I love this so much!
Love this little stapler! Half the size of regular staples and easy to get into tight places. Great for ribbon which is usally smaller than the standard staple. Very glad I purchased this tool.
I learned about this product on Ali Edwards website and needed it for a mini scrapbook I'm making. It's a great tool, well made and the staples are the perfect size; not too small or too large.
I'm so loving this tiny attacher. It is perfect for ribbons, flowers and many other small scrapbook embellishments. It's simple to load and to use. I definitely recommend this product!
This will make it SO much easier to attach small ribbons and tags as well as other items! I can hardly wait until they come out with colored staples for it! (You just know they will!)
I took a chance on these...and I am really happy...small staples, but very very sturdy, and you can reach into the card farther than other small staplers. Easy to use, easy to load.
The staples are so cute, the size is unexpected. It is also functional and a good way to attach some of the more stubborn elements to a page. I'm going to like this thing a lot.

This is a must have stapler! It is easy to use and I love that it can reach farther onto my layouts. I received as a gift on NSD and have already needed to purchase more staples.

This is now my very favorite stapler! It easily pierces everything I've tried and it's easy to use and so portable. Another fabulous piece by Tim Holtz!

I love this little attacher. It is easy on the hands. I love how solid it feels. Arrived right away and works great. Thanks for a great transaction!
I only just bought this staplet recently and use it on my ATC Cards. It really works well and it is easy to cover the staple with a little embellie.

Who knew how much fun it could be to staple things onto pages? This stapler works very well, is well made and feels like it will last a lifetime at least. The only thing I wish is that it had longer reach, but I don't consider that a major drawback. The staples are so cute I find myself stapling jst for fun with no attachment!
This is the greatest little tool.
It gets into small spaces and corners that need fastened and you can cover the staple and hide it so easy with small attachments over the little tiny staple.
Why someone didn't come up with this before is beyond me.
Thank you Tim Holt!
I like it very much and it works great to staple ribbon bows together when you put them on the scrapbook page. I'm trying to get back to my scrapbooks and this item I like and use. I have to order staples though! The 100 that came with the stapler are not enough. norfil
So easy to use.. I just had a little trouble loading the staples. I couldn't figure out how to get them to go in and when I finally did, every time I tried to close it they kept popping out. Now I'll probably be able to do it no problem. Otherwise I love it!
I love this stapler, but after using it approximately 30 times it has broken. I was putting staples in it and the plastic 'band' inside it broke lose and it's impossible to put back together. It is not very well made, but given I stocked up on a huge supply of mini staples, I now have to shell out for a new one PLUS shipping to Australia or find something else to use and have my album not match. I'm extremely careful with my scrap tools because they cost so much to ship here. I'm really not happy, and will think twice before I buy Tim Holtz tools again. Such a shame.
