The Fuse tool puts the power of customization at your fingertips in one easy-to-use tool! The tip heats up so that when it's run across the surface of a page protector or photo sleeve, Fuse makes a permanent seal in the plastic, creating custom pockets for photos, keepsakes, and more! The Fuse also comes with a cutting tool attachment for even more possibilities.
Fuseallows you to add memorabilia, keepsakes, and other small items like sequins and confetti to your pocket paged projects without fear of them falling out or getting lost. Now, those memorable bits and pieces can have a home other than in the stash of supplies in your craft space. Oddly shaped items like tickets, movie stubs, even wood veneer pieces, badges, ephemera, and other embellishments are easier than ever to incorporate into your projects. No need to trim or modify them to make them fit. This tool has other great uses too! Ever had the urge to make a triangular, circular, or other uniquely-shaped pocket when you're working on your layouts or pocket page projects? Well, Fuse makes it easy to create custom pockets!
The tip of the Fuse heats up within a few minutes of being plugged in, so it's ready to go by the time you've got your supplies gathered and organized. And don't worry, it's so easy to use - just like holding a pen!
Once you've got an idea of how you'd like your pockets to come together, all you have to do is line up the guide of the metal ruler that comes with the Fuse with the portion of the photo sleeve that you want to fuse together. When you're ready, hold the Fuse in your hand like you would a pen, and push the tip down along the edge to create a seam.
As you can see, you can put larger embellishments like thick alphas or leave room for pockets of sequins in a project, and once they're sealed with the Fuse, they won't go anywhere! No more photos falling out or embellishments getting lost when you open or close an album. It keeps everything safe and sound and in its place.
A few tips for when you're using this tool:
- The seams created are permanent, so be sure you're thinking about the front AND back of your photo sleeve before closing it in with the Fuse.
- We don't recommend using the Fuse to cut through paper. Stick to your scissors for those!
- When using this tool, it's best to have a mat, scrap piece of cardboard, or other material laid down flat on your workspace underneath whatever project you're working on.
- Do a few practice runs before you start Fusing everything - it will help you see how much pressure to apply and what speed to run the tool across the protector.
