Making edgers - Junk Mail Gems!
Everything has a purpose. Finally there is a purpose for junk mail. Many offers contain plastic cards similar to credit cards. Do not discard! These little gems are a potter’s treasure.
Thicker cards such as grocery story discount cards can be cut with sharp scissors into interesting shapes for edging. I love my Ultimate Edger, but junk mail cards let me expand the edging options and create unique shapes specifically designed for my work.
Thinner cards such as those from Discover Card junk mail are too flexible for edging, but make great ribs and scrapers.
