I'm still in Seattle, (I'll be home Thursday) but wanted to share a new tool that I received before I left. The new tool is called the Take Your Pick Tool by Stampin' UP! I tried it out and it works like a charm to pick up itty bitty pieces, such as, sequins, sprinkles, gems, buttons and other small items with the tacky putty tip. The tool also has a paper piercer attachment, small and large stylus, and a mini spatula. It's in the Holiday Catalog on page 30, #144107. Cost is $10.00 which I think is quite a deal. The nice thing about it is you'll never run out of putty because Stampin' UP! offers replacement putty tips.
I know I struggle with getting small pieces on my cards because of the arthritis in my hands. This tool works for me and I hope it works for you, too. You can order it through my website:
