Default Is there such a tool....

I have seen this look several times (sorry, can't seem to find one now) and I'm wondering if there is a "tool" that will make it easier.

It's a look that sort of makes your paper edges look sort of frayed and bent but it's not torn and it's not crumpled. I like this look and have sort of got it by using my nails to "scrape" the edges of the paper but takes forever!

Anyone have a clue what I'm talking about? If not, that's okay...I may just be having a blonde moment right now.

Making Memories and Heidi Swapp both make edge scrapers that will create that effect.

You are probably looking for an edge distresser. TAC sells one, and I believe there is on on the keychain of many tools SU released this year. Most stamp/scrapbooking stores will have them as well.

Is it a distressor tool? SU has one now in their cutter kit.

Gotta stick up for us blondes, here! (Oh, wait, that was last month...) ANYWAY....yes, there is such a tool. You can buy them individually (I think Tonic makes one?) or Stampin Up has the cutest little set of four tools in their catalog. It's got the edge distressor, a scoring tool, a cutting blade, and a perferator (LOVE that perferator!!). They all hang on a little chain and are just adorable! It's called the Cutter Kit, on page 223.

What do you use the perforator for? I have on and wonder what others do with it.

You can use it to make cute little coupon books, or anything else that you want to be able to tear off. Like a bookmark card? Perforate the outer 1-3/4" or so and the recipient can tear it off for a bookmark, leaving the card intact.

I've heard (but not tried) that some people run their perforating tool across a white pigment pad and then lightly roll it on their darker paper. It looks like stitching!

Thanks a bunch everyone! I had looked at the SU one in the catalog, but it just wasn't clicking....my roots are deep.
