I often have people telling me about problems when cutting with the Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer. The blades don’t seem to last long and they get furry edges when trimming. I have that problem too. Add to that now the Trimmer is being retired and there won’t be any more Trimmer blades available.
So I have a solution today for you for Wednesday’s WOW! #65 I think you will find very useful if you experience some of these problems. How to extend the life of your blades to avoid those furry edges. And also so you don’t have to replace your blade so quickly. 🙂
When you cut your card place a piece of scrap paper or copy paper in between the Trimmer and the card you are cutting. You will get a crisper cut edge when you cut. This will help you make those blades last longer before you have to replace them.
Of course you end up with shreds of paper but that’s ok. Just recycle them. I will say it can be tedious if you have to cut a lot of card but for a few quick cuts it is great. I have used this for some time now and I don’t have to replace my blades too frequently.
Hope this is helpful. Share it around as it might help some of your cardmaking friends. 🙂
