Bible Journaling Basics: Supplies–Tools

img_5464

Today is our last day discussing supplies and to wrap it up, we are going to talk about some of the tools I use along with, or to create items I use in Bible Journaling. Remember, none of these are necessary–I could use scissors for most of these items, but these tools make things way faster!

Ok let’s start with the stapler looking guy. This is the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. I picked this up at Joann’s with a 40% off coupon and I love it. You could use a normal stapler, but those staples are big and kind of bump up off the page. I love that this Tiny Attacher is just that–tiny! The staples are super small and cute and lay really flat! It also doesn’t really rip the page easily so I can use it to attach tabs at the top of the page with no worries!

Moving to the right, you’ll see a small circle punch. This is a 1″ punch and I love this one for punching out Printables. In almost every Illustrated Faith kit, there are little circle die cuts that measure 1″, so this is an easy way to punch them out quickly and perfectly.

The Tab punch I got at Hobby Lobby and I LOVE this guy. You saw me mention it in yesterday’s post. I love creating tabs out of scrapbook paper and also using this to punch tabs out in Printables I get from Illustrated Faith. Tip: If you slide the paper in, you get one tab punched out like in the picture below. However, if you fold your paper in half and slide it into the punch–not all the way, leaving the top folded part just under where it will cut, you will end up with one piece that can be folded over to create the tab.

The last tool I wanted to feature tonight is actually my newest. I picked this paper cutter up a few months ago at Joann’s. I like how small and lightweight it is, but it still gets the job done. I love how quick and easy it is to cut stuff with this!

So these are my favorite tools! Do you have other tools that you love to use in your Bible Journaling? Did you guys enjoy this segment of the series? What are your favorite supplies after going through all these different supplies?
