why I love my crop-a-dile

A few years ago I splurged and bought this Crop-A-Dile. I wasn't sure how much I would use it, but it was a suggested supply for a class, and I had a coupon, soooo...I went for it. Yeah. That was one of the best purchases I've made.

Seriously, I love it so much! I've used it on felt, cardboard, wood, and today, leather. It punches holes so easily! I highly recommend that you consider this tool. Really.

After the comments were mainly in favor of the leather key chain from yesterday, that's what I went with. And you were all right. Mine is different from the one that I had found, but the supplies I had on hand worked for this:

Nice, right? I think the birthday boy will like it. But I couldn't stop, so I also made one of the wooden disc key chains too...this one is for me:

I'm pretty sure that I want to make a hundred of these. They are quick and so much fun! Maybe every single key that I have needs its own key ring...

Oh, and want to see something else really cute that I made? It's tiny and sweet!


  1. I like the smiles on the flowers. :)

  2. Man I want a crop-a-dile now!! I could have so much fun with one.

    And those key chains are really nice.

  3. Now that's a hole punch with attitude! Did you use it to punch the hole in the wooden disc as well?

    The leather keychain is good - I reckon he'll actually use it (you know what men are like).

  4. Yes, right through the wood! I've found that if I'm too close to the edge, or in a weird spot of the grain that it will break, but I'd say that 90% of the time, they are perfect!

  5. I love mine as well! But I have a very ugly Pepto Bismo pink one, yours is quite nice. I have never tried leather or wood, you learn something every day, thanks Miss Mollie!

  6. I didn't know what a crop-o-dile was until today! Where have I been?? I need one.

    The key chains turned out great!

  7. Wow! good topic are discussed in this blog , Good picture gallery is added for support in this blog. Keep it up ! Best wishes for the future.

  10. Is that a key chain? I love the design with flowers :)
