I am fed up of wiggle lines using scissors. I have a 3ft gullotine at work but not very practical bringing that home every day.

What would anyone recommend?

You can get guillotines in Staples for £10. My DH got me one and its good.

ooooh I'll have a look on their website. What size did he buy you and is it the right size?

I have a paper trimmer from The Stationery Box. I've had it for about a year now, with no problems. The base part is about the size of A4 and it then has the frame part around it to square your paper up against IYSWIM. It cost about£ 15 from what I can renmember.

It doesn't have all these interchangable blades and only cuts straight edges but I use mine all the time.

i have an edgemaster with changing blades absolutely love it, is expensive tho. got it last year as investment saw it on C&C and had to have it ordered elsewhere tho as was cheaper. I counted all the times I used fancy edge scissors and have broke a few also i do a lot of invitations where I would have to cut out 100+ bits so got it.... thats my justification anyway

Thanks dingle.

Champs you have put temptation in my path. That looks fantastic!!!!!!! Hmmmmmm £70 incl p+p what excuse can I think of as to why I must have it ........

Whats C&C btw?

C & C,I think, is Create & Craft, a shopping channel on Sky. We are on cable and don't get it!! I think you can get it online to, but haven't installed our broadband yet and our PC is too slow to view on dial-up...

ooo....must find time to installthe broadband software tonight!!! Then I can have a look too.

I have only seen the edgemaster advertised in magazines...looks day...perhaps after I get a sizzix...

Munchkinola,, lol, it really is a good buy. cant believe how much i spend on craft stuff yes, as dingle says C&C is create and craft.
Dingle,, dh groans when i switch tv to C&C!! I think I must start selling some cards and craft stuff as I have spent so much!

Lakeland sells a small ( A4 ) guillotine for about a tenner.
Great as DD can use it too as it's safe.
Just for straight lines

Well I went into town today and compromised. In Partners they had an A4 creative paper trimmer. It does straight cuts, perforations, wavy lines and a deckle edge. I think thats enough for the moment while I'm experimenting. It cost me 29.99 which is less than half of what I was tempted to spend so I spent £30 to save £40

Thanks for all your advice
