We just love the name of this eyelet setter and it certainly lives up to it. It can take a bite out of most craft materials including paper, card, leather and fabric. It can even punch though thin tin, which gives you some idea of just how tough this eyelet setter really is.
Another reason it's called the **Big Bite** is that it can reach a long way into paper and card to punch holes and set eyelets. A full 6 inches in fact, which means you can place eyelets right in the middle of your 12" x 12" scrapbook pages. Amazing!
**Save up to 20% off** the [[p5685|Crop-A-Dile Big Bite]] and its slightly smaller sibling, the [[p5686|Crop-A-Dile Eyelet Setter Starter Kit]], though hurry as stock is limited for this offer.
===Embossing Heat Gun
[[p4689 Heat guns]] are an essential item for any craft enthusiasts, allowing for a huge range of exciting techniques, such as heat embossing (especially popular with rubber stampers) and [[shrink plastic]]. At 300 Watts, it has all the power you need to heat without risking scorching your card. For even more control, there are 2 heat settings so you can use the high setting for melting embossing powder, or the low setting for quickly drying ink or glue. It is light and very easy to use, and when you are done, its handle folds away to take up less space.
