Hi everyone,

Just wondering what is the best circle cutter tool out there? I don't want to spend a lot of money as I've spent waaaaaaaay too much money already buying things and not using them. I have a Fiskars cutter with the circle templates but I can't get it to work properly!!!! Somebody told me that I should buy a glass mat?!?!?!?!

You do not need a glass mat, but you do need some sort of cutting mat. Since you are using templates, I assume that you are talking about the Fiskars USX cutter. The most common mistake people make with the this cutter is to use the template upside down. Make sure that the "Fiskars" name is right side up, and hold the USX like a computer mouse. It helps, too, to start with the blade pointing in the right direction. Also, start on a straight part of a template, versus a corner (not really an issue with a circle, lol).
