You know you are, truly, a stationery geek when the jingle of new staples (or in this case Supaclips) hitting your doormat is enough to see you running off to your office and praying that your video camera has enough charge to film you tearing into the packaging… unfortunately in this instance it didn’t and I literally couldn’t wait. So I opened it without you!! I’m sorry, I know I shouldn’t have but you know how it is haha!

So its been a few days and I’ve literally been supaclipping everything in sight, even the kids are scared to stay still around me incase they get a cheeky clip haha. I have received this for free from Rapesco for the purpose of this review but everything in this post is my own and I have not received any financial incentive (damn you Rapesco… show me the money ;)…

I honestly do not know how i’ve never known about this gadget before… for a stationery blogger who loves a gadget I feel like I need to tell myself to go write 100 lines (on some very lush paper, of course), apparently these have been around for a while and some people had them at school, all we had was treasury tags and paper polos (yes and even they bring joy to my geeky little heart).

Ok Ok onto the review I hear you yell… well, it’s awesome, the clips I have are pale pink, bright pink (oh yeah baby) with hearts and then some yellow emoji clips too.. there are also silver that come in the pack (rose gold Rapesco… where are the rose gold??) The clips are small but fit up to 40 sheets of paper and they hold them really securely, the fact that they are small is such a benefit as I can use them in my note taking and planner without covering much space on the paper.


You know I can be a bit of a cack handed fool so I didn’t manage to jam the tool on video… and you do have to make sure it is pointing down or the clips fall backwards and you cant slide them over the edge of the paper but then that is just logic I suppose ha.

Probably my second favourite thing to clip with this is bags of half eaten crisps and sweets, not only do they keep the contents from spilling out they also stop the children getting back in haha, i’m joking of course!!

You can purchase the pack, which contains the dispenser and 40 clips, for £3.42 on amazon and the packs of 100 clips are currently £6.04 per pack.. bargain I tell you!!

Unboxing/Review : Rapesco 6 Hole Planner/Organiser Punch

The lovely people at Rapesco sent me their new 6 hole punch to review for them, I did receive this free for the purpose of this review (and over on my YouTube channel) but all opinions are my own, apart from the actual product I have not received any financial compensation in exchange for this review!

I had seen the new punch on a few blogs (Mrs Brim and The Stationery Geekette) so when Rapesco got in touch and asked if I would like to review one I jumped at the chance.

My old black Rapesco punch has done a grand job over the past year or so but this new version is jam packed with updated features and I couldn’t wait to get my grubby little mitts on it.


The first thing I noticed when unboxing it is the “lock” function which locks the handle in the down position making it totally convenient for storage, the last one spent its life on my shelf and I’m sure this one will too, but at least it’s flat lol.


There are printed guides under the handle which allow you to see the paper type you ar set to cut (something I didn’t realise until the end of filming when I’d already worked out the settings for myself, what am I like lol). You can also move the holes over without taking the bottom flap off which is very convenient.


My favourite feature has to be the little flap that allows you to empty all the confetti out without taking the whole thing apart, I’m not sure why it’s my favourite part, small things and all of that!

The biggest improvement is the way you actually punch your paper, for most planner sizes you just slide the holes over to your desired size and punch, for A5 you pull out the paper guide, line the holes up with the A5 setting, put your paper up to the guide and punch, you then flip your paper and punch again. This is a million times better than the old way and, if I didn’t already own this new one, I would not hesitate replacing my old punch with this one!

I have the white version but they also come in blue and pink, they can punch upto 10 sheets of paper at a time. I’m not sure what price they will retail at or when they will be available, as soon as I have that information I will let you know.

Thank you Rapesco for sending me this punch.
