Anyone who knows me or follows me here in the blogging world knows I am a self professed GADGET QUEEN! I love getting my hands on the latest...and sometimes the greatest!
A few weeks back I ordered the new imagicut from The Craft Channel which is a ribbon cutting tool. The imagicut is manufactured by Imaginisce which makes many cool crafting tools including my beloved i-rock!
It looks like this:
You simply lay your ribbon across the Imagicut using the guidelines on the inside:
Now the reason the jury is out on this new tool is that I think I would most likely just reach for my scissors to cut my ribbon rather than waiting for this little gadget to heat up and cut. Especially for scrapbook pages which I place behind page protectors. I mean...I really can't see the need to seal those pieces of ribbon, you know?
I might use it for ribbon on cards or projects where the ribbon is not so protected...like on a mini album or altered artwork.
Really, though...a bottle of Fray Check and a good pair of scissors would do just as well, I think!
Indispensible? Nah....don't think so. I will take it to my 4 day crop next week and see how much I really use it there and then maybe the jury will be ready for a vote!
