Spellbinders Tool n’ One Foam

We have this wonderful new addition to your Spellbinders Tool n’ One - Tool n’ One Foam.

This special density, custom colored foam makes using Tool n' One a breeze. After cutting, embossing, and removing your die cut from the die,  place your die with the remaining small pieces cut side down on the foam. Using the Tool n’ One, just roll over the die and all of your pieces will be on the foam. Take the foam over trash and shake to discard all of the pieces. NO MORE pieces flying everywhere. This foam features an anti-static coating to keep the cardstock from sticking to the foam. The foam supports the die as you roll over the die to remove the pieces.

The package contains 1 piece of 6" x 8.5" foam.

This fabulous foam was designed by Cindy Echitnaw to coordinate with Spellbinders Tool n' One and Spellbinders Dies.
