Holding a Nail in Place

Having a difficult time holding that small nail while trying to hammer it into the wall? Here's a great tip, poke it through an index card and keep hold on the index card. It's a sure bet that you won't hit your fingers with the hammer!

Cool idea! Just what I needed since we recently moved and haven't put up the pictures yet.

Hey, that's a super great idea! I've always had trouble holding small nails in place without banging my fingers with the hammer. I have a lot of small cardboards I can use for that purpose. And the great thing about the idea is that I just have to pull / rip out the cardboard after the nail is in place. Thanks a lot, Amanda!

You can also use the clear lid from a deli container then you can see where you are placing it......
