EK Success Powder Tool

One of the tools that we use in SDU (Scrapbooking Design & You) Classes is a powder tool. Sometimes when you want stickers to have more dimension than normal, you can use a 3 D Dot to make it stand out more, such as I did on this cute little owl sticker (Sticko, On the Farm). First, before I took the liner off of the 3D Dot, I used the powder tool to brush on the powder that makes the sticker not be sticky any more. That way, I don't have to worry about the sticker back catching on the paper behind the owl and making him look deformed. I also added some googly eyes to him as I felt he just needed them!
Above, you can see what the powder tool looks like. Sure, you could use talc or baby powder, but this is so much easier and much less messy.

All of the EK Success Brands are now represented on the new website, The powder tool is one of those things you can find there that aren't as easy to find in retail stores since so many scrap booking stores have closed.
