I bought these items from Hobbycrafts:
Which were both in the sale so I got 3 packs of the rectangle signs and 1 pack of the handles for £2.49! bargain and with them I have made seven of these:
(Well actually I have made one so far as a tester but it seems ok so I am now off to saw the other five bits of the rectangle pieces and make the rest!)
So now I don't have to keep changing my distress tool every five mins and then have to faff as the velcro keeps coming off it - and yes I did see the tip about stapling the velcro onto the handle but they have now worked themselves out too so I am back to the not so sticky velcro. Am really rather pleased with myself!
