I just bought a Fiskars circle cutter :

http://www.fiskarscrafts.com/tools/t_circle-cutter.aspx

I understand the directions that come with it, and I am following them exactly, but I cannot seem to get it to cut a circle. Do any of you have experience with this cutter? Is it just me or does it simply not work well? Please help!

like any scrapbooking tool, it varies ALOT...for instance, i have alot of success with the Fiskars shape cutter (i still use it occasionally, even though i have my wishblade now) but most people cant use it at all....

i HAVE used it, but dont own it (not because i wasnt successful....because i was buying the aforementioned wishblade)..when i worked at Michaels, i had a lady buy one, and i taught her how to use it, and i have use them at my LSS....if you are doing everything the package says, you may just be incompatible..

i havent used it in over a year, so i would need to go out and look at the back to refresh my memory, before i could walk you through it on here....

fair warning: scrapbooking is the largest market for consumer disagree-ance (its a word now...lmao) i have ever seen....you will likely get alot of both sides....hopefully someone can help you navigate it, if not, when i go out this weekend, im going to take a look at one, to jog my memory, and ill help you as best i can

thanks, miss disney! I agree that tools differ, and there are much better ones than this- I just need a good, smaller one because I like to haul alot of scrapbooking stuff with me everywhere lol. I think I figured out the problem with mine, plus changing the blade and cutting mat helped. Maybe you could recomend anther small cutter that would fit in my purse and is multi purpose?

the Fiskars shape cutter is what I use to cut circles and ovals most of the time, when my wishblade isnt the right tool, or when i want complete control over *what* is being cut out....(i.e. a word or an image)

its not expensive, and though it has a slight learning curve for some, i was able to use it right out of the package....

you may want to go to your LSS and ask to use ALL of their circle cutters, to see which one is best for you (they usually provide this service for free) befroe committing

some people swear my reccommendation is evil, and will only use the colluzzle....
