  • Stupid question from a non-card maker!

    Right, I know this is a really dumb question (but it's typical of the questioner really). Is there a tool or proffessional way of bending card to give a really crisp, clean edge?
    Basically I want to fold some business cards in half to form tags for some new items i'm making but want them to look nice and not podged together! Help!

    Yep, it's called a bone folder or creaser and you can pick one up for less the £2 at most craft shops

    BTW there are no stoopid questions in craft, just answers waiting to be discovered

          That answer is the perfect example of why Natty netty should run for Prime Minister

            Or, if you need it RIGHT NOW THIS MINUTE, a butterknife or a letteropener or a run-out biro will do a reasonable job...

                When I first started doing my cards I used a blunt pizza cutter as a creaser - obviously having cleaned the cheese of it first though!!

                    Yep, your best bet is a bone folder or creaser. If its for tags you'll want it to look proffessional. But if you're using a makeshift folder the main thing to remeber is to avoid cutting into the card at all. It weakens the card so it will likely tear and will look scratty.
