Create a crisp fold with the Non-Stick Bone Folder 1 from Dress My Craft. The included piece is dual-sided and measures 6.5" x .5". The handmade folder is heat resistant and capable of folding paper, leather and other materials.
I make a lot (A LOT) of greeting cards. I use the 'Scor-Pal' board and it's bone folder, but was going through bone folders at least once a year (replacement folders ranged $2 - $4). I have been looking for a tool that would "LAST". When I came upon this Dress My Craft Bone Folder, I did research on it before paying the nearly $17 for it! What little I found appeared promising. So, I took the leap...hoping this tool was the 'winner'.
Well, the tool didn't last even 2 months! It became so deformed that the tip doesn't really have a tip any more....it's rounded. The flat 'folding' edge....well....what edge? It is all deformed and wavy/warped.
I actually contacted Dress My Craft and their response: "Their primary function is to help to burnish and help to fold the papers ....and yes having said that they are also used for the scoring but for sure continuous scoring with the tip may deform the shape as we mentioned that they are bendable and too much pressure can spoil it unlike the regular plastic tool."
WHAT?!?!?! Are you kidding me??? Why call it a Bone Folder and say it is for 'Folding and Scoring' if it's not really intended for continuous use? Why would someone spend THAT kind of money on a product that is only for occasional use (IMPORTANT info that isn't even mentioned anywhere with their product)? Really?
I am extremely disappointed in Dress My Craft for not being 'up front' in their description of their product. And then, won't back it up.
IF you do a lot of folding and/or scoring....in my opinion....this is NOT the tool for you.
Obviously, the Dress My Craft Bone Folder is NOT the tool I'M looking for.
