The Difference A Bone Folder Can Make

I'm working on some swaps for a stamping meeting this weekend, and thought I would share something with you. Do you have a Bone Folder? Do you use it? I have several and use them all the time. All. The. Time. For every card I make. Why? Let me show you...


This is 24 pieces of Melon Mambo card stock, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. I scored them with my Simply Scored Scoring Tool and folded them in half. That's how you make a card, right? But look at that wild pile of card bases. Not very organized, not the easiest to work with. Check out what happens when I use the Bone Folder on them:


Much more organized and makes it so easy to grab that pile and move it if needed! Just by running the Bone Folder over the folded edge of the card base, it smooths it out and gives it a much nicer crease. It took me less than a minute to do this to all 24, so it doesn't add much time. Ah, so much better!
