Great kit, pity about the case - and the (lack of) durability
This kit is really useful for giving dimension to die cuts like flowers and leaves. I need to find more instructional videos to continue learning how to use this, but so far I'm impressed.
I'm not impressed with the case: disposable plastic. I've been using the packaging but, although it's fairly heavy-duty plastic, it's in a few pieces and is time consuming to fit together to put away. I realise there's a non-disable case that can be purchased to house these tools but it's about $30 in Spotlight (I'm in Australia) and, after currency conversion, it's about the same cost from Scrapbook.com. For what you pay for this kit and how much it costs, I think Sizzix could become more environmentally friendly and more considerate of customers by dispensing with the plastic packaging and use their nondisposable case instead.
Update: although I haven’t used this kit much and I’ve been pretty careful with it, the round ball literally fell off one of the styluses. It seems like it wasn’t moulded as one piece and there was a welding flaw. I’m looking at a replacement now, which is why I noticed my review and am updating it.
