The Retractable Craft Pick from Tim Holtz by Tonic Studios is perfect for crafting, rubberstamping, scrapbooking and makes a great paper piercer
I am very excited about this pick. I no longer have to worry about stabbing myself with my craft pick, or having it roll off the table and needle-first into my foot (happened!). Not only is this pick safe, but it's very comfortable to use, too. I no longer struggle when trying to put a hole in my paper because this tool is very easy to grip and hold on to. A bonus is that the pick can be extended to various sizes. It's perfect when all I want is a tiny prick, and not a bigger hole (or visa versa). I can't believe that this great tool is only $5!
As long as I've been scrapping, I have had a paper piercer that always had the protective cover come off, that would poke me and my scrapping supplies, and that was difficult to carry to crops.
Then I attended a crop and the woman sitting across from me showed off her paper piercer and I was in love! I just had to have it. The best thing besides the safety aspect is that you can adjust how much the paper piercer sticks out. It's great. So happy to have such a small tool that makes such a big difference.
I purchased this months ago when I first started scrapbooking. Not knowing a lot about tools, this looked like a good idea. IT WAS! I was very surprised in how sturdy this product was as well. My friend who has been scrapping for years really liked it because it was retractable. I like the fact also that I don't ever get poked by it when it is stored with my other tools. Love the safety factor! One of my favorites!
This little pick is just a handy gadget to have around! I use it for getting brads started through scrapbooking projects. I use it for getting small pieces of cut objects, which have been glued to exactly the right place on a project. It retracts easily and I keep it handy and find that I just use it a lot more than I thought I would. The more that I use it, it becomes more of a habit to grab.
I purchased the retractable craft pick at a Scrapbook Weekend event and it is the best tool I own. It is so easy to use and safe with the retractable pick. It is the best tool for brads to place them anywhere on your page! Not sure how I created pages with out it. I have purchased one for my sister for her birthday.
WOW, SO MANY TIMES I HAVE LOOKED FOR PINS TO PICK, OR A PUNCH TO PUNCH, AND LOOSE THEM, BECAUSE THEY ARE SO SMALL. THIS PICK IS FANTASTIC, A MUST FOR A CRAFTER OF ANY KIND, CAN BE USED IN SO MANY WAYS. VERY EASY TO USE, AND SAFE FOR THE KIDS, SINCE IT RETRACTS. I LOVE THIS PICK, THANKS TIM, WHAT A GREAT IDEA.
I like this tool because it retracts, so I don't have to worry about getting stuck with it when digging in my container. I also like the eye on the end you could hang it up (I don't) but it keeps it from rolling away. Also you can set the needle at different depths which is nice for different types of paper.
This is a retractable paper piercer with a new name, pick. The thing that sets it apart from other paper piercers is that the metal "needle" retracts and is more safe. Love the loop for hanging or for adding a piece of ribbon so it's easy to spot in your tote or workspace.

Yes - I love it! It's much safer and I don't have to go looking for the cap! It never rolls off my scrappin station either. I should have had this a long time ago. Because of the ring at the top, I have it hanging right where I can find it every time. Another great idea my Tim Holtz!
This craft pick is awesome for so many reasons...the best being the fact that it is retractable. I have small grandsons who are in my craft area when I am working and I never have to worry if they pick this pick up out of my tool bucket.
