So I just ordered a tiny attacher after seeing so many of my fave scrappers use one... Why do I still feel I've spent 20 bucks on a little stapler... ???

Well it is just a tiny stapler but, it's a great one! I resisted for a long time and just received one for Christmas. Somehow I've used it every time I've scrapped since then

I think the layouts I've seen online w/ staples look cute, but having lived in Hawaii most of my life I have seen what high humidity does to metal... I do not want my scrapbooks full of rust someday!

I got one a few months ago and I LOVE it for PL. I also found out recently that wood veneers can be stapled. Can't wait to try that.

One of my most used tools well worth the money! I found 1 on clearance for $7.00 so I snagged it up now I am the proud owner of 2 of them!

Do they sell them at Michael's? Might be worth it with a 40% off coupon...

Thanks everyone - feeling a bit happier about my purchase. It's a very cute tool, I just don't want it to be a one minute wonder but from what you are saying it will be a sound investment. I love that you can use it on wood veneers...

I thought this was a rediculous thing, then bought one after seeing so many people talking about how much they loved it. I got mine with a 40% off coupon and LOVE it! So do my girls.

I even paid full price for mine and it was totally worth it. Yes, it is a tiny stapler. It doesn't even have a particularly long reach. Hell, from time to time it jams.

But darn if that thing can't attach ANYTHING to a page! Embellishments I used to shy away from because I couldn't figure out how to attach them... gone are the days of avoiding them. Come at me, bits of metal, even vellum when the adhesive can't be covered up.

Well, it IS "just" a stapler but a good one! I do hope to get an extra one on my annual trip to the "big" city this year. Every year I go, I get extra packages of staples. I want to make sure I've got a good stockpile for when they decide to discontinue it.

I DO wish they'd make one with a longer reach, yes, I do know the tricks for that but it would be EASIER if they'd make a "Big Bite" version of it! You know, like the Big Bite is the long reach version of the Cropadile.

I feel a purchase coming on.... but I have a few questions:

Will it attach chipboard?
Metal?
Wood veneer pieces?
Slightly thick plastic/acetate?

I was another person who fought jumping on the tiny attacher train, but I used it at a crop - and loved it.

Yes, it *is* a tiny stapler, but that tininess is what makes it so appealing to me. Those little staples are cute!

I used mine most often to affix a small bow, ribbon, or other embellishment.

I know the feeling.. I stayed away for that same reason a high priced stapler! But seriously when I got it from ms with a 40% off coupon I was in love with how tiny the staples are and how much cuter they look! I'm glad I bought one!

Well, thanks to this thread and the other recent one about the Tiny Attacher, I now have one on its way to me. I also order the pack of 1550 refill staples because I needed to add more to my cart to get free shipping, so I hope I reeeeaaally love this thing!

I got mine yesterday for half off at Michael's -- they let me use a JoAnn's coupon. So it was $8 plus tax. So eager to try it!

I thought it was like a mini stapler, but it's even smaller than that.

J's has a 50% coupon you can print online from their site. Take it to M's and buy the tiny attacher for half the cost. Just a thought.


Love the magic of Scrapping & Disney!

I wish I could get a deal like that! It's pretty inconvenient for me to get to one of those stores, so I order just about everything online. J's had a sale on it, but it was only a few dollars off, so I just bought it from Two Peas because I already had close to enough to get free shipping. Oh well, I think with all the perks I get from Two Peas I'm okay with paying a little more.

I think it's a must have tool. Years ago I passed on one I found in the clearance bin. I was trying to be "good" and not buy stuff on impulse. For once I wish I had given in and spent the $4! I did end up buying one for 50%, but it wasn't like paying $4 and yelling, "Score!"

Glad you were able to get one. Enjoy!
