Why Do You Need Sanding Blocks? Three Good Reasons!

When I first saw Sanding Blocks in the Stampin' Up! Catalog, I wondered why I would  ever need them!  I have perfectly good sandpaper in the garage if I need it.

Then I decided to try one, and I was sold right away! Here are

  • This is the perfect tool to use when I have cut card stock with a dull blade and the edge is raggedy.  Because it's a block, I get a solid, consistent connection between sandpaper and card stock, and I can smooth the edges quickly and efficiently.
  • Sometimes I will get rough spot on a punched shape if the punch is getting old and dull.  Just a few swipes with the Sanding Block cleans it up right away.
  • Embossed & Sanded DSP The Sanding Block is also effective for embellishing projects–use it as a distressing tool on either the edges or the flat surface of card stock.  One of my favorite techniques is to emboss some Designer Series Paper with an Embossing Folder, then lightly sand the design.  The colored layer of the paper will rub off and expose the white core below.

    I used to use an emery board, but Sanding Blocks are MUCH better (and no one tries to borrow them to do their nails!).
