Hello everyone. Yvonne here with a flower card using the new Stylus Tips for the Tool ‘n One system. The easy interchangeable tips in the Stylus set in combination with the Tool ‘n One makes a multi-functional tool that no crafter should be without. I am sharing a Zinnia flower card and want to show you the different uses of these tips with the tool.
