This week's tip is offered to address your "sanding" craft needs.
If you are looking to sand & lightly distress your papers & projects an emery board, nail filing block or nail file will do the trick just as good as any sander out there and for less.
Check out your local dollar store where you can buy a package of emery boards which can last you a while depending on how often you sand your projects.
If you prefer you can purchase a nail file block at the dollar store as well to use as your sanding block instead. Those blocks cover more surface and give you a better grip for sanding more surface. In addition, that sanding block can serve as a stand to hold your sharp paper piercing tools & needles.
I know that sometimes we would like the latest & name brands, creme de la creme, top of the heap, celebrity endorsed products on the market but in reality not everyone can afford them. Which is why I try to find alternate solutions that can save you money, time and frustration. What's more is that I try them before I recommend them and if they don't work, I simply won't write about it.
So I hope this tip & the many others I have shared come in handy.
