Do you have a FASTENATOR??

This month at SCRAP OUR STASH our challenge is to "DUST OFF" something and use it... so here's what my DT post today was....

Anyone have a FASTENATOR?? What the heck is a FASTENATOR?? Well, it's a tool that "staples" these large "bars" instead of staples... and yes, you have to buy the bars too...different colors, different designs....oh my!!

So this was all the rage a few years back.... and of course I got one. And I used it a few times... and now it's sitting on a shelf, collecting dust...(sound familiar anyone??).....

So, here's a pic of the tool.. and all the packages of those "bars" that I purchased... (some on clearance at BIG LOTS)...

and after doing this layout, I remember why it got dusty. It's kinda hard to "line-up" exactly where the bar/staple is going to go.

So, I had fun and decided to just "go with it".. and ended up using this as a pretty large part of my design!! Here is what I ended up with!!



  1. Well they look really great. Love the layout and the flashes of colour with the main black, very effective. Hugs lin

  2. You know... I saw this at your place the other day...and I was gonna ask how you got that design! LOL! And NOW I KNOW! LOL!! I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee this!! Such fun photos and loveeeeeeeeeeeee those bars!! This turned out WAYYYYYYYYYY COOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
