Not sure if this is posted in the right section but it is paper prop related and something that i though members may be interested in, after i posted pictures of my Grail Diary packing on a Facebook forum i got a comment asking me how did i cut out the replica stamps with the perforated edge around them and this is the answer, it,s one of these sowing machines but without the cotton in it, you cut the stamps out with scissers leaving a boarder then you simple go around the edge of stamps with the sowing machine then fold along the perforated edge and rip them just like a real stamp, you can also use it for tickets and any other paper item that uses perforations,it takes a bit of practice to keep it in a straight line but i think the results look real authentic especially with postage stamp replicas all mine are done this way i did in fact buy the sowing machine 2 years ago just for doing this paid £3.95 and they are still so cheap now the eBay ad below is from today.
