I have been scrapbooking for over 10 years now and have never needed a tool like this. I've always managed with my fingers clumsily picking up and applying it to my layouts. I came across this Quickstik Tool by We R Memory Keepers, formerly sold under Quickutz, and now reach for it everytime I work with small die-cuts, letters and bling. It has 2 ends - one with a tacky end that is a picker upper and the other end has a poker and scraper tool. This other end pulls out and has 2 ends that you can use together with the picker upper or just on its own. Check out the picker upper picking up a tiny piece of paper that I am placing onto a larger die-cut. Magical!
