I love this thing!

I used to have this Fiskars paper trimmer.  It was okay, but I could never get anything to actually cut straight.  I finally realized it wasn’t me, it was the fact that the bar that flipped out didn’t actually hold the paper perfectly straight.  I kept wondering why everyone else could make cards from cardstock, and I was completely incompetent in that area.  I’ve spent a fortune buying notecards because I couldn’t seem to make my own.

I went to Costco last weekend, and picked up one of these….

It’s a Fiskars rotary paper trimmer.  It was around $27, and although it’s not as portable as my old one, I LOVE IT!!!  I had picked up some beautiful Memory Box cardstock wanting to make notecards out of it, and was finally able to (without butchering them!)

And for $5 you can buy additional blades that make different cuts.  I picked up this scallop blade and can’t get enough.  I’ve scalloped about 20 pieces of cardstock in 5 minutes!  No more messing around with those stinky scissors (I can’t cut straight, and they’re always annoying me!)  I don’t like to do things unless they’re fast & easy.  Now I can make scalloped cards for Valentine’s Day!
