Fab Friday.... belated

If you own a Crop-A-Dile, you know they have a reputation for punching through just about anything - chipboard, aluminum pails, lampshades, etc. But did you know they also punch through rawhides?

I wanted to give my dog, Dixie, a treat in her stocking (yes, my pets all have their own stockings!) and rawhides are her favorite thing. I knew my High Hopes stamp of Santa handing a puppy a Christmas bone would make the most adorable tag, so I pondered how to attach it to the rawhide....

Voila! Crop-A-Dile to the rescue:

It was a big hit with Dixie :)

If you don't have a pet or know anyone who does, hopefully this tip will inspire you to think of another unusual material for your next Crop-A-Dile project!

Way to think out of the box!
