Self-Finishing Aid: The Cricut Spatula

The finishing reveal on Instagram that Needlepoint Clubhouse in the St. Louis area recommends the Cricut spatula tool (made for scrapbooking) for self-finishing items.  

I use a butter knife because I'm cheap, but this is inexpensive and the bend means it's easy to use the tool to lift your leather edge and then push the raw edge of your canvas under that leather lip.  These appear to be sold in sets but if you have a scrapbooking buddy, see if you can borrow theirs to do your finishing. 

You can buy online or in the big box craft stores that sell the Cricut system and accessories.
