    Okay, so I just saw a commercial for a new kid's craft tool called the "Crayola Cutter"...

    From what I can tell, it appears to be perfectly matched for cardmodels...

    Anyone stolen one from their kids yet to try? :twisted:

    It makes a perforated line. I wouldn't think it would be good for my cut once......ooops nearly there..try again methods!

    I might get one just because...I am SO EXCITED about this because it is getting children involved, and since they are our future, cardmodeling will sure to be here for many years to come. Pretty neat television commercial huh? I agree with Kaz, and I much prefer my x-acto and tiny scissors.

    How can you say you prefer it if you have never tried it? besides this might just prevent you from cutting yourself AGAIN! HAH HAH just giving oyu a hard time ;)

    I was just joshing with ya - no harm intended Phil. I prolly wont try it myself - no model is complete without some of my blood on it!

    I agree you wont cut yourself, but it might permanently tattoo yourself!

    If you do tatoo yourself be sure to use the crayola crayons - safe and non toxic as always! I might have to go find one for my kids now just because.

    Well, the Web site says that it CUTS the paper by perforating it, meaning the blade must punch through the paper. To cut it this way, the blade must move pretty fast. I guess no one will know for sure until one of us buys one.

    I prefer x-acto knives,I've cut myself plenty of times,it does'nt really hurt that much.

    I've been searching the 'Net for some details on this thing, and I've only been able to find this. Personally, I'd like a better look at the blade and the cutting quality on the paper. How much detail can be cut with this thing? I'm also not very impressed with the fact that the cutter is tethered to the display base with an electric cord. It also seems to be able to only cut lightweight card stock, but that's ok, because I almost always use paper.

    Still, it may be worth getting.

    Well, I think I'll get one. If it doesn't work for me, there's always kids around the house that want to build a paper model.
    Nice elephants.

    Maybe I'm not building enough models. So far I haven't cut myself with the X-acto knife, but there was the one time I ran with scissors....

    hi seen your post I have one, had to get one and it is not a smooth cut.
    What it is... is a small needle very small or pointer something. well it goes up and down in the pen you have to go very slow for it to cut properly. My opinion???? For 20 bucks it is not bad for kids but for an adult that wants a smooth cut this is not for you.

    hope it helps
