I used one I bought for my classroom last year.  They are the best things ever.  Super sharp, can cut through a couple pieces of paper.  Just check out your local teacher supply store.  I would totally recommend getting one! I love that I have it at home to do my projects with.

I’m either going to get a fiskars one like a friend has or use one of the purple cow click blade ones I have.  The purple cow has all these changeable blades of different designs and was less than $50.  Otherwise I’m going to check with the letterpress studio I’m taking a class at to see if they mind me using their guillotine style cutter.

We’re planning on using the paper cutters they have at Kinko’s or wherever we get our invites printed, or even go to the library 🙂  I didn’t want to buy one for $150, cuz I’d never use it again!

I know my mom used one of the Fiskars I think it was. It had an orange plastic/metal blade. I just saw the other day that you can buy attachments to some of them to make wavy lines or different patterns. I know they aren’t super expensive to buy because my mom wouldn’t have spent more than like $20 on one. It just depends on what you want because the teacher-style ones that are more expensive cut multiple pieces of paper, but I’ve always had problems getting them to cut exactly. The smaller, cheaper ones cut only a few at a time, but it’s easier to measure and cut straight normally.

I’m planning on using a cutting mat, rotary blade and straight edge.  I couldn’t find an affordable trimmer that would cut 14″ paper. I got this one for $40 at overstock.com.

i would recommend a paper cutter that has a guillotine blade … like purple cow or making memories.  guillotine blade cutters will allow you to cut multiple papers at a time.  rotary blades will only cut thru one sheet.

I had this recommended to me by a scrapbooker and I’ve been using it (with the occasional blade change)

Carl 12” Professonal rotary Paper Trimmer

I went to my local Kinko’s and cut down my large sheets (26 x 32) when I was making my pocketfolds, but I have used the above cutter for everything else. YOu can get blades that cut and that score.

Also I prefer a rotary because if I use more then one paper at a time they usually slip and something gets cut wrong.
