Stapling ribbon tip!

Ever wanted to use your Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to staple ribbon in the middle of your 12"x12" LO and thinking that mr. Holtz really should make a Massive Attacher as well?

I love my Tiny Attacher, but I do not like tools that puts limits on my creativity. If I want to staple something 3" from the edge of my LO or card, then I demand my tools to help me do that (That is why I´ve got the Big Shot and not the Cuttlebug, the Cougar and not a Cricut, a BigBite and not a Crop A Dile).

This made me think, do I buy a new stapler? What can I do to get my ribbon stapled where I want it?

I was looking through all the stuff on my craft table, wondering if there was something I could use, and my eyes fell on to  a paper strip cut of a patterend paper. At last, a solution! I could staple my ribbon to the scrap piece of paper, and then glue it to my LO! (Sometimes I feel so clever...) When doing it like this I am even able to move my ribbon around before attaching it to my LO. (As I am a staple first, ask later kind of girl this is a big plus for me... )

It looks like its stapled on right?

What a fantastic idea, Siri!!! I don't have one of Tim's tiny attachers.....yet! But, I will definitely keep your method in mind for when that happens! Oh those bright colors...they have put a smile on my face today! :>

Oh goodness gracious!!! I was just coming back now to try to leave you a comment again. I kept getting error messages that Blogger would post my comment. Apparently, it decided to pub my two attempts to comment twice each!! I've never opened a comment window and seen my face so many times!!! lol

Technology...........I love it and it can make me a little nutty sometimes! :> Hope you are having a great day!
