I got this little tool from a friend years ago. At first I thought "why the heck do I need this?" Before long I realized what a handy tool it is to have on hand. I mostly use it to make holes for brads (be careful - it's very sharp!). You can also punch holes for hand stitching. One thing you should never do is try to clean out your eyelet hole punch with it. I broke the tip off mine doing that so it no longer punches nice clean holes. I'll have to invest in another because I use it a lot.
I used to use a thumbtag to make holes for brads and then I found this tool at a store. I wasn't so sure at first whether this would be better but ever since I've tried it, I've used it a lot!!!
It is so easy to make a hole with this whether you're going to use a brad or to make stitches.
It is really sharp and I always keep the little protective cap on it came with.
I'd recommend this to anyone!
I bought this tool after I took a beginner class for scrapbooking and it's been my favorite tool ever since! I actually used my first one so much that I wore it out and had to replace it. I use this tool for everything from piercing paper for a brad to helping pull a thread through after sewing on a page to cleaning out the tip of my glue bottle. I'd be so lost with out this tool!

Gone are the days of me using a pin, pen, or random semi-sharp object to poke holes. I reach for this paper piercer all the time. I'd wanted one for a long time and once I finally got it, I would never give it up. I wish they sold them in a variety of diameters, as sometimes I'd like a larger hole with the same ease and convenience of this tool.

I have the whole set from MM that this piercer comes in and I have to say that out of the whole set this is the tool that I reach for the most, by far. For every brad I use and every hand stitching job I do (yes, i said HAND stitching... I don't machine... LOL) I grab my trusty paper piercing and pierce my paper as needed. love this thing!

I am never with out this little tool! Next to a pair of good scissors this is the one item that every scrapbooker must have. It's just not for punching holes for brads, I also use it when I can't get fibers into button holes, making stitches, I even use it to get diecuts off my cutting mat(carefully that is). It truely is a must have:)

I got this last year for Christmas with the whole kit. I really like this one the best. Even tought the first one i broke. The balled side is great for puting rubons on a page, and the piercer side is great for just what it is pierceing holes. I use it to make a hole for my brads mostley.
I use this tool often! It's not just for piercing paper! I use it to; remove sticker backs when I've die cut letters, pierce holes in paper for brads, pierce holes in primas that don't have holes, and pierce holes in vellum. Oh my the list of uses is endless! Very sturdy well made tool!
I love this tool. I haven't used the stylus side, but I use the paper piercer side for making holes for my brads. It's very handy and can easily be switched from piercer to stylus, but sometimes it falls off. But its a great tool if you use a lot of brads like me. Perfect for on the go.
This little tool is simply fantastic! Since i bought it, i do so many more things. I can quite easily say that i use it everytime i scrap now. It's sharp and just so handy. If you don't have one, you really should. I'll never regret picking it up :)
