I'm looking for a teeny weenie punch. One that would make a hole not much bigger than would be made by taking your paper piercer and sticking it through a paper. Is there such thing?

I have one, so there used to be at least. Not sure if it's still made, but I'm guessing I would have bought it at M's years ago. I want to say it's a 1/16th hole?

I have one that is from the office supply area but I have had it for years. Not sure if they still carry them, though.

I just did a search, and it is a 1/16th punch, and it looks like it's still made. I saw them by Fiskars and Darice. And, WM had a 3-pack of punch with various sizes, including the 1/16.

Oh DevilDog, THANK YOU!!

Remember that new Jenni Bowlin pinwheel punch? IMO there's a flaw in it. They need to have a tiny hole at each tip so when you fold them in, you can put a brad through it to hold the pinwheel. As it is, you need to punch a hole or put a glue dot there.

I'm going to "improve" it.

Guess I'm shopping during my lunch hour today!

I have one from years ago. It was one of the little EK Success Paper Shaper punches.

Okay, now I see there's a 1/8" punch too. Makes me wonder if I should go with that one?

Anyone have a brad handy? A little "normal" one? Would an 1/8" hole be too big?

Why didn't I think about this when I was at home this weekend instead of at 6 a.m. on the drive to work?

Another option to try-- WRMK crop-o-dile series-- new, royal blue handle one makes a teeny hole. Sorry I cannot link, techno-challenged. In a pinch, I can find the packaging; if you are interested, pse ask. Happy boxing day scrap-shopping!

I use the purple handle hole punch by Fiskars for making pinwheels. I made them this past summer. The small brads are just a bit bigger than the hole, so it does work. Sorry, not sure on the size of that punch.

^^ I think you answered my question - I want the brad to go in but not have the hole be so big it could drop through.


thanks everyone!!!

Yes - I have the 1/16 th one - it's purple - I think it's fiskars? I love it - but it doesn't help when I need a hole farther in the middle of the page but I do use it quite a bit!
