If you are piercing your paper to put brads on it or just giving it a punch hole look, you can use this tip. It's just right in your kitchen, an unused sponge. It easily gives you the cushion while you pierce a hole on your paper. Very easy, very practical and inexpensive! Your kitchen sponges come available in any color (pink, yellow, blue, green, purple, etc...). I will be featuring a list of all my simple useful tips in the side columnn blogs for your future reference as well as techniques.
Have a nice day!
