The Cutting Edge!

custom printable party invitations helpful hints

We have had an overwhelming amount of questions about which products we use to cut our own projects, especially the circles! In an effort to help ease your assembly for any of our party printables, below are the “cutting edge” products that we use often:

We have the Fiskars SureCut 12″ Paper Trimmer. Any should do the trick, but we have not had any problems with this one. We also use exacto knives. You can cut over a thick piece of cardboard or buy an inexpensive plastic cutting board at the dollar store (what we prefer)!
We also use the Fiskars circle cutter (I guess we have a thing for Fiskars products, huh?). It cuts circles from 1″ to 8″ and the clear base makes it easy to see exactly where you are cutting. This is a sample of a 2″ scallop circle punch. We also use the 2″ circle and 2″ rectangle punches. These are the easiest to use when punching out your cake toppers or even the favor tags. You can purchase larger (or smaller) sizes as well, depending on what you want to do with them.

All of these products can be found at Target, Walmart or most major craft stores such as Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, or AC Moore. Do you have a particular product that you swear by? We would love to hear your suggestions as well! Let us know what other cutting edge products we might be missing!
