Has anyone seen the new crayola cutter?


I can't help but imagine how much it could help with cutting stencils! In fact, it looks like a dream come true!

The only problem i can see is that the website mentions that it just perferates the paper. Even so, I really want to try it!! (I only hope it can live up to the anticipation)

what do you mean by "perferating" the paper?

I've been seeing the ads for those, too, and wondering are they as good as they look.  If it only perforates the paper, then would you have the little nubbies sticking out on the stencil?  Has anyone out there bought one?  I would love to hear about it!

ok, so I realize now that I spelled it wrong, but "perforating" would mean that it does not totally cut clean lines, but cuts it in dashes. I guess the best example is notebooks that have perforated pages so that they are easy to tear out.

OOOH. That would be useful..

and if the holes that were being punched were close enough and small enough, it would barely leave a mark, right?

I think i'll wait for someone to buy it and test it out before I ask for one.. heh..

According to Amazon it's hard for children to use but crafters seem to like it. It's only $20 so next time I see it I may pick it up. If it doesn't work it'll be going back.

I was really excited when I saw it and so bought it, but I do not recommend it. It doesn't work very well. They give you some things to cut out and that paper is kind of thick, but not like card stock thick. I use freezer paper when I stencil and it doesn't work very well for that because you have to be able to "punch" out whatever you perforated and freezer paper is too thin and, well, papery.

Anyway, if you use thicker paper, it'll probably be easier, but I still had problems with card stock tearing as I tried to punch it out, but I'm always muddling things up! So, in my opinion, it's not really worth it for stenciling, but I guess it might be different for everyone?

Oh, and about the point of the pen: it stays inside the pen until you press the button to make it move in and out really quickly. It doesn't stick outside the pen.
