cut it out

CRAFT FIND OF THE WEEK



I love you Mr Stanley

Dear readers, we've all got at least three of these little tools lurking about our studios, kitchen drawers and toolboxes. The humble Stanley Knife often goes unnoted, a bit like the phillips head screw driver or the retractable ruler. But this week we honour this nifty gadget as the tool of choice for the renaissance of papercutting currently sweeping the world - well our world anyway. Interesting to note Stanley is just a brand name (like Bic and Post It) and is correctly known as a utility knife.

But to us he will always be Stanley. Always sharp, never dull and the first person to invite to a paper party.
