Very green here. Any suggestions for a circle cutting tool...something hand held? There are so many out there, it's mind boggling. Local stores have a large punch with a lever and a Fiskers with handles. I'd appreciate any suggestions! Thanks.

I was just watching a product demo video here on this site, It was for the EK circle cutter. Looked like a good one.

After buying alot of circle cutters that were junk, I discovered the EK Success Curvy Cutter.

Cuts like a dream!

I have several circle cutters -- the 1st one I purchased is the best. I love the Martha Stewarts circle cutter --- only drawback is that it only cuts up to 5.5 inches.

I hate the ek success one --- just my humble opinion. I find it extremely frustrating.

I would see if any friends have these -- and give them a whirl.

I recently purchased the ek success cutter bee on sale and really like it. I cuts circles 1 to 6inches and just about all sizes in between. It took a few tries to figure it out but once you get it, it works great. Too get it to work right just make sure you hold the paper down firmly.....I am now looking for a self-healing cutter to use under it.

My favorite circle cutter is the Fiskars Ultra Shape Express. It's particularly good when you are trying to put a circle in an exact place on patterned paper. A drawback, though, is it doesn't glide through heavy-duty cardstock. It takes a couple passes when cutting through that material.

It actually cuts bigger then the 6 inches they say it does.... it put the cutter on the outer ring, and face it outwards. It cuts to about 11 inches this way.

I have the martha stewart one but it doesn't cut more than 5 or 6" I use my cricut expression for larger circles but for the longest time i just used a dinner plate and an exacto knife

I have the Martha Stewart Circle Cutter its hand held and not very costly it cutts from 1"-5 1/2". It's also very easy to find I got mine from wal-mart, i've also seen them at Hobby Lobby and Joans
