Have you got a ‘Chuckie’ tool yet? And, No…. it has nothing to do with ‘horror’ movies lol.
This fabulous little gadget is a tool (also known as a Stamp Glider) which helps to get beautiful even stamping when using a stamp positioner, such as the MISTI.
I struggled to find one in Australia that suited me, as typically the postage from the US stores became more expensive than the tool itself lol. So I decided to make my own.
I added some beautiful design paper from Altenew & Pinkfresh Studio, but you could even make yours a ‘shaker’!
The Felt Sliders I found were the perfect size and they already had a foam layer in them. But you could easily die cut and create your own using fun foam and adhering the layers together.
I wanted a tool with some weight, was large enough for my hand and something that I could add a design to.
That is why I chose to use a glass lid from a candle jar after seeing some great ideas such as this video on Youtube HERE and Nancy’s video HERE. As you can see, there are many possibilities and you can personalise your own tool to suit your needs!
You can see how I made this Chuckie Tool here or watch it in HD at YouTube.
GIVEAWAY – Open To Australian Residents Only (sorry to everyone else, you know I still love you).
I have made an extra ‘Chuckie Tool’ to Giveaway (it will be floral but may look different to the one pictured above). To WIN, all you need to do is leave a comment below letting me know if you are from Australia. I will draw the Winner early April!
I hope this has been helpful, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask. AND if you do make your own Chuckie, it’d be great if could share on Social Media, I’d love to see what you create.
I have listed the products that I used in the supplies (although they may no longer be available) but it is worth a wander in your crafty shops or cheap supply shops and online to find the ‘candle lid’ to suit you.
FUN FACT – Did you know that it became know as the ‘Chuckie Tool’ because this is what Gina K calls her stamp gliding tool because it was her friend Chuck who made it for her!

Oh well that looked like a lot of fun, and it is very pretty. I didn’t know what a chuckle tool was. I usually just use a cloth to get some pressure.
I’ve also seen people use the sleeve of their jumper (sweater)… we don’t need many long sleeves where I live lol.
I used a baby food jar and also a small jar that had fruit in it. They curve up to fit my hand perfectly. Just added the felt slider to the lids.
Fabulous idea, I made four and it was such fun!
love your version of the chuckie tool! so pretty, im in Sydney so can i go in the giveaway please?
Yay, you are counted in, thank you Pam!
I am from Melbourne Australia and I would love a chuckie tool to help with my stamping! Thanks for the tutorial 😍
How wonderful Stephanie, Good Luck!
Hi Therese, loved your video your chuckle tool is so pretty! I live on the Gold Coast I’d love to win one. Have a great holiday 🙂
Love your version; thanks for the opportunity to win this. I am from Tasmania
Wonderful Jenny, Good Luck!
What a brilliant idea, Therese! And it’s super cute as well! I live in Beaudesert.
ooh, not far from me Jan, Good Luck!
Awesome chuckie tool Therese! Thanks for sharing your video! Bev from Tin Can Bay, Queensland. 🥰
Wonderful Bev, glad you like it, Good Luck!
Awesome tool. Absolutely wonderful job you have done, very pretty. I’m in Oakdale, Sydney
Good Luck Sandra!
Hello I am in Australia. We are usually excluded from giveaways because of shipping. I am so happy to be included in any giveaway. Thanks thanks thanks
Wonderful, Good Luck Esmeralda!
How clever. I am impressed with those lovely heavy duty felt sliders. I totally agree about shipping. I wanted to buy wome watercolour dots on a small piece of card, regular card size the dots were US$4 but postage was US$26.95, quite ludicrous. I’m in NSW so I’d love a chance to win a Chuckie and avoid gluing my hands to it if I had to make it myself.
Yippee! You are counted in Megan, Good Luck!
What a fabulous idea for arthritic hands. I’m going to give this a go. Thanks Terese.
I am loving mine Carol!
I did NOT know that Gina K’s friend Chuck is the reason behind the name – he’s going to love being famous!
It’s totally a fun fact right!
I am travelling the Victoria high country with little or no internet so will have to watch the video later. Would love a Chuckie tool, though! I have often wondered about making one with the lid of a maccona coffee jar! Yours looks great! Thanks for this opportunity!
Hi Christine, hope you are enjoying your holidays too! Good luck with the Giveaway! Hugs Tx
What a brilliant idea, a home made Chucky tool, I would be happy as to win this. If not I will try making cause I was looking at someone using it on their stamp positioner and remembered I wanted one. Chucky, my first thought was, what is Therese doing making a horror story tool??? Yep that’s me. You are so clever.
hahaha hopefully you will not see the real ‘Chucky’ anywhere near here lol.
Love your version of the “chucky” tool 😍I’m from Sydney and would love to enter your competition to win one ❤️
Yay! Welcome Diane, Good Luck!
What a great idea Therese. Practical AND pretty. I’m in Sydney and would love to be in the drawer please. Also, What stamp set are the cute kangaroos you used in your demo of the tool from please?
Hi Tracey, the stamp set is from Uniquely Creative and is called ‘Good Onya’. Hope this is helpful, Good Luck!
Hi Therese, a Chucky tool is a new one for me, I love it, many thanks
Rene from OZ x
Thanks so much Rene, Good Luck!
Love all your videos, I live on the Gold Coast, Qld
Thank you and Good Luck Becky!
What a great idea to use the lid from a candle jar and I love the idea of using the patterned paper to decorate it. I am in a lot of pain with my hand so I really need to make a chucky tool.
Yes, you will really appreciate a tool like this, it’s a game changer!
Sorry, posted my comment but forgot to say that I am from the Central Coast, NSW. Thanks again for the great idea.
Thank you Frances
Very creative and pretty!
Thanks so much Christine
That looks soo beautiful Therese! Gorgeous addition to your desk!
I am loving using it, Good Luck Alison!
Hi Therese, I love your beautiful cards and this ‘Chucky’ tool is very clever and pretty. I am in Perth, Australia and would love one of your creations. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your holiday and keep creating!
Wonderful Bronwin, Good Luck!
Love this! So simple!
I am from Australia! Good luck to everyone!
Thanks so much Sonya!
What a beautiful tool. Love the idea of the added weight of it to help with stamping. Thank you for this amazing opportunity to win. I am in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
Wonderful, thank you Melissa!
Hello, I’m from Perth. Want a clever little tool. The floral image is delightful too. I hope I have a chance to win. 😁
Yay, Welcome Caterina! You are in with a chance, Good Luck!
Love your version of the Chuckie tool Therese. That paper pad is gorgeous. I’m in the beautiful South West of Western Australia so please enter me in the giveaway….Enjoy your holiday.
Awesome! Love that part of the world, it certainly is very beautiful!
Hi Therese…love your chuckie tool….would be great for my often sore hands…love your videos as well…Lynne from South West, Western Australia
How wonderful Lynne, such a beautiful part of the world! Good Luck!
That is so cool, thanks so much for sharing!! Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, oi, oi, oi right here!! 😁
Yay Ashlee, Good Luck!
What a clever idea. I have thought about these tools as I get sore wrists but didn’t really want to buy one. I like the idea of making it from what we have. So if I don’t win this one (I’m in Brisbane) I might use a Moccona coffee lid.
Yes, I have heard of people using a Moccona lid, crossed fingers you win this Helen, Good Luck!
Love it, functional and pretty. I use a chalk board duster, but I think a heavier tool would be better. From Perth.
Yes, I thought about using a chalk board duster but liked the idea of the weight of the glass too.
Amazing that we can be so resourceful using what we have to create our own chucky tool. I would love to go in the draw to win one of your lovely creations, if I don’t win I’ll definitely be trying to make my own. I’m in Sydney. Enjoy your holiday.
How wonderful, thank you and Good Luck Kerrie!
Fabulous job, Therese! I sat here thinking about all of the candle lids that I threw away! haha Great tips, my friend. Oh, I know. The postage for international is horrible. I avoid giveaways from companies in Europe and Canada. Yikes! 😲😲 Good luck, ladies!
Glad you like it Marisela!
Watching / following from NSW. Absolutely love your version, how fun to be able to personalise it to suit your favourite colours, etc. Thanks for sharing and a chance to win!
Wonderful! Good Luck Dotty!
Thanks for the chance to win. I live in QLD. I am currently using a white board eraser. Does the job but not as pretty.
I did think about trying an eraser myself so it’s good to know that they work well. Good Luck Shaz!
What a great idea, I love the design you chose.
Thanks so much Tracy!
I would love to win one please to go with my newly purchased misti.
ooh, that would be perfect Wendy, Good Luck!
Wow, you’re a clever one! I just love your version of the chuckie tool…. The patterned paper is a brilliant idea…. thanks so much for sharing, I live in Sydney.. 🙂
Yes, I was going to colour something myself but was too impatient lol. Good Luck Paula!
That looks fabulous, while I am in NZ, my Mum & sister (who is visiting soon) are in QLD so if I was lucky could receive it for me 😀
Sounds perfect Kim!
You make it look so easy to make 🙂 I thought I could make my own version using a dishwashing brush – it took me aaaages to remove the bristles. After all that, It’s too rough to use 🙄. Anyways, enjoy your holidays 😀. I’m in Adelaide and thank you for the opportunity to be included in the giveaway!
What an interesting idea to make it from a dishwashing brush Maria! I did think about using a ‘whiteboard eraser’ but wanted the weight of the glass. Apparently the Moccona coffee jar lids work well but I don’t drink coffee…. lol. Good Luck!
You clever girl! That looks fabulous. I’m in Perth WA and had been looking to see if they were available locally so was wondering what I could use to make my own. I thought I might have to get hubby to use a circular piece of wood and attach a round door handle for the top and a piece of felt from my stash for the bottom.
Many people have been using handles and they seem to work very well, but I was wanting something a little heavier and bigger (to help with the arthritis in my hands).
I think it is great. I live in Wollongong and would love a giveaway,as we are not eligible for any overseas ones. Fingers crossed.
Good Luck Daphne!
I was thinking of using a Moccona coffee jar lid, but problem is, I don’t drink coffee! I do like candles, though, so I might give yours a try!
Yes, I have heard that the Moccona lids work well too!
Love your videos! I would like to enter your competition to win one 😄 I live in Canberra ACT
Good Luck Leanne!
Is there anything you can’t do? I’m in ore of your card making skills, but also now of your chuckie tool making skills 😊. Thanks for sharing how to make this, so if I’m not lucky enough to win I can give it a go. BTW I’m at a Redland Bay 👋
Oooh, you are not so far away from me, Good Luck Jodie!
What a great idea Theresa!
You’ve done a great job with these. I’ve been trying to think what I could use to make one as well.
I’m in Tasmania, love your videos!
wonderful Julie, apparently the Moccona coffee jar lids work well… but I don’t drink coffee lol.
Therese, your Chuckie Tool is so pretty! I would love to win the other one that you made :o) Fingers crossed, i live in Queensland. I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing break too!
Thanks so much Kazza, and Yes my holiday is very relaxing!
Hello Therese, Love this chuckle tool. Can see it sitting happily on my desk. 😃 I am from Melbourne but currently on a road trip of the eastern coast and home by Easter. Safe travel on your holiday too.
Good Luck Norma!!
Love your Chuckie tool it is so pretty. I would love to win one. I’m in Perth WA. And my birthday is in April 😊
Thanks so much, Good Luck!
Fantastic! If I’m not super lucky to win the giveaway I’ll definitely be trying this. Thanks for the amazing idea!
Thanks so much Ashleigh!
How clever are you Therese. This is stunning and I’d be so lucky if I was able to receive one. Eltham 3095.
Awesome thank you Tristan, Good Luck!
Your chuckie is so pretty!! I have only seen them made with a wooden door knob or chair ball. I would love to win it 🥰🥰🥰
I liked the idea of the glass lid and have linked a couple of other fabulous videos which share something similar.
Hi Therese, that‘s a lovely design, I am in NSW so I would love to win one of your handmade chuckie tool. Hope you have a wonderful break. TY.
Thanks so much Connie, Good Luck!
Your tool is so pretty and absolutely useful. Great for these old arthritic hands. Have been meaning to get one but like you find postage from overseas is over the top. I am in Perth.
Yes, it totally makes such a difference with the extra pressure, Good Luck Ruth!
Hi, I am a first time viewer from Canberra. You made it look so easy to make one of the chuckie tool, but I don’t have the candle lid, nor the patience to wait 14 hours!!! Please enter me in your giveaway. Thank you.
hahaha yes the patience was the hardest part lol. Good Luck Joan!
Brilliant and so pretty too!
Thanks so very much!
I have never in my life heard of a stamp glider – or a chuckie tool for that matter lol! Looks like such a pretty addition to any craft room!
Thanks so much Claire
Far far to many miles away from you which is a shame for your giveaway but thank you so much for the video idea, a Yankee Candle lid should do just the job, off to beg one off my daughter. X
The chuckie tool looks amazing. Im in Maryborough Queensland and as soon as my craft room is replaced after being flooded twice and everything having to be thrown out I will be trying this out. Thank you for the inspiration and easy directions
Hi Sandra, I am so sad for you, the floods hit here too and we were feeling very lucky that we live on a hill. I have just done a BIG cull of my craft room over the past 2 days and would love to send you some ‘stuff’. It may be slightly loved and not in it’s original packaging…. please email me at email@example.com and let me know what kinda things you like and I just I may have something that suits. Don’t be shy, because I would love to share! Big crafty hugs, Tx
Maybe we should call this one the Therese Tool! 😉 l have also heard other YouTubers call it the Debby Tool after another inventor. Thank you for the great tutorial on a “local” version, Therese. There is no shortage of candle jar lids in our home – just need to source the furniture pads.
Hi Barb, I found the furniture pads (very cheap) at Bunnings, there were plenty to choose from. You could also die cut and layer fun foam and felt…. I’ve seen that done successfully too!
