Check out what Mr. Big Bite can do!

I finally used it! BEFORE . . . I bought this tin bucket at a garage sale, and when I got my first Crop-A-Dile, I went crazy setting various eyelets around the rim . . . cute, right?


AFTER! Look at how far down Mr. Big Bite can reach! Pretty cool! Just like the first one, it cuts through this tin with no problem whatsoever, BUT the big difference is how far it can reach into a project. This is over 3" down over the rim of this tin can. LOVE IT!


The eyelets I set around the rim the first time were as far as I could go. This lovely flower stack is down about 3". I can set something 6" into a project! This is pretty cool, and Mr. Big Bite was very easy to use. I hate to enable people, but if you like your Crop-A-Dile, but you want to be able to reach further into a project . . . you're going to want your own Mr. Big Bite! I'm off to look for other things to punch holes in!! Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. Don't forget to look at the post below which shows size comparisons for Mr. Big Bite!

OMG - I have to add this to my wish list now. When I first saw this thing I was like, what is she going to do with it AND now I know!

I work with a lot of altered paint cans and this would have been awesome to have then!

:running off to put on wish list:

By the way, I am sure my DH thanks you in advance :-)

Oh Carol, this bucket is adorable!!! I got mine last night. You've really inspired me here!!

My Big Bite looks amazing, I have only just got my Master Small Nibble (aka Crop-A-Dile) and have been getting used to that! I love that you can reach 6" with the bigger one as that would be perfect to reach into the middle of a 12 by 12 layout.

Lori said...

Wow--that's great! So many more options with the Big Bite--it sure is tempting . . .

Maria said...

Holy. . .Mr. Big Bite sure has a big bite! I love your pail with all the pretty eyelets and the big flower is fabulous!

Is the big bite heavy? I guess it would be something that you would leave on your tabletop huh? It could probably be seen as a weapon, huh? LOL! Just kidding! Actually, it's on my wish list. . .along with the 1,000 things I want to get!

YOur SBS2 sis,
Maria

Don't you love the big bite!! I made a tin too :) Thanks for the comment about my daughter, it is sad, I feel so bad for her. However to put a positive spin on things we have a really good life & my kids have seen so much of this country from moving around. Thank goodness for email and free long distance. have a good day >"<

This looks fab!!!! I thought of another use for Mr Big Bite (not that I've got one, 'cause I haven't) but you could use him to punch holes in a box to make your own ribbon holder, you know the ones where you poke an end of the ribbon out of the box to sort it!
