Colorway Arts Cartonnage Tools Set: Spacers and Spatula **Corner tool NOT included**
This is a set of cartonnage tools (ONLY ACRYLIC SPACERS AND SPATULA, check options for corner tools on the end of this description). Using these spacers will save your time and make your books, albums, boxes, covers very well finished and with standard spaces between pieces of cardboard. They are very functional, quick and easy to use!
The tools included in this set are: 4 acrylic spacers (5, 6, 9 mm and 15 mm - 3/16", 1/4", 3/8" and 9/16") that helps you to have correct spacing between cardboard pieces when you are making some projects, like boxes, books and covers and the plastic spatula that help us to fold the fabric or paper and smooth it on the cardboard. Some ideas of projects to use with different spacers: 5 mm (3/16") - great to make boxes specially if covering with thin fabric or paper. Also great if using chipboard or book board thinner than 100 points. Recommended by traditional box makers. 6 mm (1/4") - great to make boxes using 100 points chipboard, thick fabric. Can also be used for lots of other projects like sewing kits and other pieces that needs movement. 9 mm (3/8") - great to have correct space when making albums, mini albums, hardcover books, binders (this is the space recommended by Kathy King for her albums) 15 mm (9/16") - great to trim fabric or paper around the piece, and also great to make some covers. More than that, all spacers can be used combined giving you extra dimensions and spaces between pieces. Plus, if the spacer is used in the "standing" position, it will be 3 mm (1/8") and can be another great spacer used to make some folding pieces (like my surprise box).
IMPORTANT NOTE: this set of tools DO NOT include any corner miter tool. If you are looking for a corner miter tool to complete your set of tools, search for "miter" on our site.
