LIttle Buddy

Our new buddy arrived today... the Scor-Buddy, that is, and I've got to say, he's a super cute younger sibling to the Scor-Pal! He comes with a storage bag for just $20 and will fit beautifully in your tool bag for card classes & crops!
You'll notice some colourful ribbons on our Scor-Pal & Scor-Buddy... this was our brilliant idea after *ahem* losing a scor tool just days after getting our Scor-Pal. Thankfully they are replaceable (which is good, because we wear them out! This tool gets used sooo often here!), but we found if we attach a long ribbon it's much easier to find :)

We've tried various things to attach the ribbon to the tool itself, but until today it's actually just been a loose piece... then we figured out there are screws on the back of the tool, so we punched a hole in the ribbon (the small hole in your crop-a-dile!) and screwed it on there. Viola- a colourful, personalized tool! Here's a pic of the back of the Scor-Buddy and how we attached it. It works exactly the same way on the Pal.
Here's a size comparison for you- you can see the Buddy is just over 1/4 of the size of his big brother, plus he's a nice shade of pale blue instead of grey.

Some features we love- it's open edged on the right and bottom sides, which accommodates any size of card you're working with. The grooves are every 1/4" throughout, with some 1/8" grooves on the left and right sides and a couple in the middle to make tri-fold cards a breeze!
Welcome to the family little buddy... we love you already!

p.s. at this point... we have just one more tool in stock, but will hopefully have more within a week or so. Let us know if you'd like us to reserve one for you!
