I expected a bone folder to be made from bone: this one is plastic. Plastic folders leave a residue on the cardstock when used to crease a fold, and the description did not mention the size. From the picture I expected a 6 inch length which is what I wanted, not a 9 inch length. I have refrained from purchasing several items from scrapbook.com because the description is inadequate.
This is a great bone folder. It makes very crisp folds on any type of paper and it perfect for cardmaking or scrapbooking. I have found that it also works well for rub ons.
Another use for the bonefolder is to make scoring lines. If you need to make several scoring lines on a page, use your paper cutter to guide you. My paper cutter has a slit down the center of the changeable ruller. Run the bone folder down the slit in the ruller and it will make a perfect score line every time. You will never have to worry about not getting the perfect line again!
It is hard to find a good bone folder at a good price and this one both works well and is cheap. Folding paper has never been easier. The lines I can make are perfect even with the thickest cardstocks. I use it often to help mark where I want to cut my paper. It’s also so much better to use than those popsicle sticks for rub-ons. Before you get one you don't realize how many little things it can do that help you save time.
A Provo Craft Bone Folder is a must have tool for every paper crafter. It's smooth rounded edges are perfect for scoring paper to help make crisp, clean and professional looking folds. It's also an excellent tool to use when you need to smooth/press down paper pieces while adhering to surfaces to avoid wrinkles or creases. A great reasonably priced little tool!
This folds cards in a flash! It keeps fingers from becoming sore and papercut!
ALSO!! A great unconventional use for it... If you have the Xyron 150, the tip of this folder is a great tool for rubbing between small crevices of alphas and embellishments to make sure that you don't have extra adhesive outside the lines of your embellies.
