hi all,

can you all tell me if something like this exists?

i'm looking for something to create perforations, like in between stamps on a sheet of stamps (the old-school ones where you have to lick the back).

for some reason, i think a metal wheel with a handle exists for this but i can't seem to find it on the ol' internet. any clue?

thanks!

Or do you mean to cut stuff apart?

The only thing that I can think of would be the CutterBee Rotary Tool

Funny... I was going to suggest the Making Memories Distress Kit but apparently they don't include that in them anymore (at least the ones available through here). Mine (which I have had for a few years) had a pounce wheel.

Is the tool on the far right here what you are talking about?

It's called a pattern wheel, so I'm told! You can buy them for cheap- like $2 at Jo-Ann or Walmart.

I was thinking of the pattern wheel too, but why wouldn't the Cutterbee tools work? I think they would be perfect - and I am going to search these out for myself!

Look in a fabric store. You'll find them there.

you can also get a decorative scissor that will cut the stamp edge pattern. There is a large one and a small one.

Stampin Up sells a tool that does that. It's in the Cutter Kit.

I've got a set from Stampin' Up that has 4 tools on it. It has a distresser, a perforator, a cutter and a scorer. They are like little metale wheels that pop out of a casing. They're all linked together, kind of like a keychain. That tool is handy!

LOL! That's the tool I am talking about! I started typing my reply and got interrupted and didn't see yours.

I have a disc for the rotary cutter side that preforates.

You can get the dress maker pattern wheels at a Dollar store. Watch which one you pick up because there are two types: one with the spikey things and a plain disc. Actually the disc one is good for making score lines if you need to make angle scores with a ruler.
