      Great once you know how

      I bought one of these years ago, gave it a couple of tries and gave up - sold it on Ebay.

      Then last year I went to a retreat where a Fiskars rep was doing a make and take using them - I rolled my eyes and thought it would be a huge disaster... 100% wrong!

      Once I was shown how to use this, I haven't stopped using it on nearly everything I do!

      Just a matter of holding it right and you can't go wrong - there are so many templates available, but my favourite is the circle!

      Give it a chance and if you have trouble, try and get someone to show you how - once you know, you'll wonder what you did without it!

      Great inexpensive cutter but takes some practice

      This is an awesome cutting tool but it's not for everyone, as I've heard mixed reviews from some. I happen to love mine, it is excellent for those of us who want to cut a variety of shapes and borders but don't want to spend the money on more expensive cutting systems. You'll need to practice using this at first - make sure the templates and cutting board are right side up and that you hold the cutter correctly. Be sure you press this AGAINST the template as you cut (not DOWN towards the paper, that will lead to snagging). Cut slowly. Once you get the hang of this, it cuts like buttah and the results are fabulous! You'll have to adjust this for different paper thicknesses, this cuts through photos and almost all my papers just fine! I must admit I have a hard time cutting my thickest Club Scrap cardstock with this, but in those rare instances I just use the templates to trace designs that I free-cut. I really enjoy creating all these shapes and borders with this inexpensive cutter!

    • wonderful invention

      I bought this not to long ago and i fell in love with it! you can use it with the shape cutter stencils and its so easy to do. i use regular stencils as well! you can adjust the height of the blade so it the stencil is thinner you wont you as much blade to cut through the paper. i also use chipboard adn trace around it and i can make tags, circles, and any shape i want! its so much faster then cutting it out with regualr scissors. it wil cut through any paper from cardstock to vellum. i use it alot to make flowers or journal peices on my layouts. i would recommend this handy dandy cutter to anyone who loves to add shape and style to their scrapbooking layouts or to any project that needs something to make it pop out and be a WOW!! factor!

      My new favorite tool!

      I absolutely love this product! I purchased the starter kit originally and although I didn't get the hang of it at first, once I watched the instructional video that came with it, I was hooked. Even though it looks relatively easy to use (and it is!) there were several key pointers on the video that really made a difference. I now use this constantly! I love the borders on the templates as well as the variety of shapes available. I did find cutting out the square and the rectangular shapes a bit more difficult than the circle and ovals, but once I slowed down and didn't rush, it really wasn't a problem at all.

      Love this!

      This is one of the first scrapbook tools I purchased for myself and I still love it. This is easy and comfortable to use. I like how you butt the center part against the template instead of holding the bare blade against it like some other systems, I have never cut into my template and gouged it yet. It is also very sturdy. Mine has been dropped several times and while it has popped apart once or twice it always has gone back together with no damage to any of the parts. This is the only template tool I recommend to anyone.

      Great cutter

      If you're a little tool challenged, you might want someone to show you exactly how to use this tool. I've heard a lot of complaints from ladies who just couldn't get it to work correctly because it was tearing paper or not cutting at all. You have to make sure the blade is positioned correctly and that you have the stencil correctly placed if you're using one. If you use the tool correctly, it's very easy and fun!

      I love this product

      I too Love this product. I have read many mixed reviews , but I have found It easy and the options it can do are limitless. I am terrible at cutting straight, but with this it's a breeze. I love the letter templetes and now my titles are really starting to look great. I do prefer useing a glass mat with it.

    • Great with stencils and free hand

      I love this tool. I don't have any of the stencils but love using it to cut freehand shapes on different layouts!! Can't wait to get the stencils.

      Great & inexpensive

      This was the first shape-cutting-thingy that I bought. It was inexpensive and I ended up buying about five other templetes for it. It does take some getting used to and as other reviews state: Make sure the template is facing right side up. I did have some problems cutting very small pieces. I love to use it to cut pictures (something that I haven't figured out with my Cricut). It's also really quick and doesn't require an electical outlet.

      Love this!

      Love this little tool! It moves with ease and it's light. Just put a glass mat underneath and you have a perfect place and tool to make your own swirls and designs. I would def. recommend this to anyone..

      Exactly how do you use the cutter? I still have the cutter but have given up on it as it gouges the template and tears the paper   By: User (01-Jul-15) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
      • You need to use the Fiskars (or similar) self-healing cutting mat under the template. Use the Fiskars orange templates (multiple shapes on an 8.5 x 11 thick plastic) and make sure the template is placed so that the raised grid marks are next to the paper and NOT on the side where the cutter should glide. Press on the template firmly so that it doesn't slide as you push the cutter around the outline. It may still take a few attempts to get the correct feel; the blade should glide and swivel as you move it around the outline shape. I always go around twice unless I'm positive there are no spots where the blade didn't cut all the way through the paper after the first pass. Good Luck!
