Remove those pesky little negative die cutouts that want to stay stuck in your die templates and create decorative pierced paper designs with the Tool 'n One.
- Release, remove and pierce intricate die cut paper pieces

- Piercing tool for uniform holes or to remove tiniest paper bits
- Spatula separates intricate dies from paper with ease
- Attachments store easily in the pod of the tool body
Spellbinders’ Tool ‘n One is the must have tool for intricate dies. It is a portable tool that performs multiple craft functions, including piercing and paper removal.
Tool 'n One also boasts a unique storage solution. What is the solution? The attachments are housed within the “pod” of its main body. The Tool ‘n One easily crosses over for other hobbyists using small pieces and parts such as airplane models and miniature houses.
Use the craft spatula tool to release cardstock or paper from intricate dies. Use the roller brush attachment to easily remove little bits of paper that want to cling to your metal dies. Use the sharp point to pierce uniform holes into your project or poke the tiniest little bits of cardstock from the negative die spaces.
Tools are easily changed by pulling/sliding the darker violet rim at each end of the tool toward the center of the tool handle body and releasing the tool tip. Slide the next tool into place and store the unused tool inside the main body pod which is opened by gently twisting each end opposite directions from the center of the tool grip. To project your work surface, Tool 'n One Foam is recommended.
Tips for successful cutting with detailed dies: First, the most detailed dies cut best with even pressure from your machine. With wear on your cutting plates, sometimes the pressure isn't so even across the entire cutting surface. Try running the dies through your machine once, then rotating the entire paper/die stack 90 degrees and running through the machine a second time. This allows for more even cutting pressure. Second, a single layer of waxed paper between the die and cardstock can be very helpful to loosen those bits from the smallest cut areas.
Tool ‘n One is #1
By Teresa Kline
Spellbinders remains a leader in die cutting, so it is no surprise they designed a must have tool for getting those small pieces of paper from ornate dies. I was amazed at how easy this tool is to use and how well it really works.
Spellbinders has included three different attachments with the Tool 'n One; the brush, the flat spatula end, and the point end. The brush sweeps away those pieces of paper left in the die...swooon! The flat spatula end pries and lifts those intricate shapes away from the die...a must have! And, the sharp point end punches out any remaining smaller pieces from the die and even your shape once cut....happy, happy, happy!
I used the brush on several ornate dies and found it works great on all of them, pushing out all those unused tiny pieces of paper. Not so fast, did I say "unused?" I thought the tiny pieces of paper made perfect confetti, would be great to take to football games, birthday parties, and weddings. I saved them in a tiny little bag for the special occasion....now that is bang for your buck!
The Spellbinders Tool 'N One is peerless in the die cutting community, making it a tool you'll want to acquire for your craft studio! Spellbinders Tool 'N One is #1!

Do you know when you're working on a card and you think, "This needs another layer. I should use a frilly die..." and then you think, "..but then I'll have to remove the paper from the detailed die! Forget it." What? That's just me? Surely not. We are friends here, you can be honest. You've been there!
You can troubleshoot to get a great cut, but still the paper chads and the delicate handling of the paper to remove it from the die can sometimes be stressful. It's hard to love detailed dies and yet see them for the work they can be. Not.anymore. Did you hear me? Not anymore!
Spellbinders has made a tool that will make you cheer! It certainly made ME cheer. Spellbinders! Rah rah rah!
The Tool'n One has a lovely rolling bristle end that will knock the chads out from the die. It's magic. Then it has a spatula end that clicks in to careful separate the die from the paper. And if there are any pieces left? There's another end tool included that will pierce the chads through the cut. It's a wonder, I tell you.
Best of all the tool is small, easy to store and all of the pieces are contained within the body of the handle. Nothing to lose!
I couldn't be more pleased with this new tool, and I am so appreciative to Spellbinders' thoughtful design. Now I can love my detailed dies that much more! Everybody wins!
Time Saving Tool
By Michelle Giraud
The Spellbinders Tool 'n One is a handy little piece that really fits a necessary niche in papercrafting. We've all struggled to individually poke out the tiny pieces of paper that get stuck in our more intricate dies. The Tool 'n One quickly pokes out these pesky little scraps with it's stiff bristled roller brush saving time and and frustration.
I found that this tool removes the smaller pieces of paper best. A couple of the dies I tried it in had larger cut outs that didn't come out quite as easily. Luckily the pointed tool to poke these out is conveniently stored inside the tool. The tool also works best with a piece of foam or something soft underneath. I used an extra stamp and scrub to catch the loose pieces, and it worked perfectly.
I also liked the little pry spatula attachment that gently separates the die and paper to avoid tearing. Sometimes I need to run a larger die through my machine several times to get all the impressions, and this makes the paper really stick to the die, this tool made it super easy to pull them apart.
The size is nice and small, so it's easy to store near my machine in my die storage container. The Tool 'n One will help make the tedious cleanup of paper crafting a little easier.
