Rotary Cutter

A rotary cutter is a great tool to have because of its circular blade which makes for cutting all types of materials easy. You can use it to make straight lines for paper and even difficult fabrics to work with. Just grab a ruler or a straightedge and you will have perfect lines every time.

Hot Glue Gun

A hot glue gun can be used for almost any project around your house, outside, or even for clothes. Hot glue is a great alternative for people that are not comfortable sewing because it adheres really well to most materials.


Keeping different types of tape around for DIY projects is an easy way to know you have some material to work with, like making a fabric out of duct tape, and more.
