Starting with the basics
This has a snap blade and you can buy refills
I have one pair for cutting anything and others that a just for paper or fabric etc
Clear are good, mettle works well when using a cutting knife.
Now as you can see I do like a good glue....any sort of glue!
It depends on the job as to what glue you will need.
One of my favourite is electricians tape, plus masking tape and double sided tape
These come in black or white and in many sizes. The white can be found in three thicknesses 3mm, 5mm, 10mm. You can build a LOT using foamboard.
I use a large one and would say this is a must have
For making holes
Sandpaper and block
Used like a shoe horn to help get those pesky shoes on!
You need some very fine ones for detail and maybe a bigger one to use with glue.
Spray paint you will need a well ventilated area and I use a box to stop everything else getting sprayed too.
Marker pens work well and if you mess up you can remove with nail varnish remover.
Paper and Card
Well, where do you start with this, computer paper, card-stock, scrapbook paper, wallpaper the list could go on and on and on and on........
The important thing to remember is you don't need to run out and buy all this stuff at once, just think about what you want to make and start with the basics.
What I use most knife, scissors, ruler and cutting mat.
