Does anyone own one of these? Just wondering if there is any need for one. Looks cool though. LOL

You replied to me, now I can reply to you! I do own a circle cutter - I got mine from Creative Memories. I also have a square cutter. Both cut 2 sizes of each shape - they are fun for embellishing make making peek holes.

Default FISKER'S CUTTER

I saw a set of 2 at Michael's that included an oval and a circle cutter. I was wondering if it was worth the price. $40 (minus 40%) of course.

Making Memories has a cool circle cutter, you can adjust the arm to any size circle you want! I can't remember the price, but, I've seen it at Michaels. Don't forget your coupon!

I have the circle cutter by EK success and its actually called the circle scissor. I love it because I can cut about 120 different size circles with it. And it was cheap after I used M's coupon. It comes with its own cutting mat, circle scissor, and the craft type knife and blade refills. Pretty good deal and great for layering or even the Xmas ornamnets using acetate. That's how I got my acetate cut for that.

HTH,

I am with MrsDiffey on this. I love my Circle Scissors from EK Success. I have done a lot of altered CD's and it was great to have.

I do own the Fiskars ShapeMaker and circle template (among others). I have never been able to get the clean line I get with the Circle Scissors.

thanks for the review on the circle scissors.
i was looking at it the other day and couldn't decide.
I thought about the circle ruler but i am a really horrible cutter sometimes but now will go with the scissors

I love my old-style Creative Memories Circle Cutter -- the kind with the post in the middle and the swing-around arm. I've found it the easiest in the world to use. I bought the Fiskars Oval Cutter and I absolutely hate it. You can't really figure where the center of our oval is going to be in order to cut photos or maximize paper usage. I tried it a couple of times and I'm now tryig to get rid of it on Ebay.

I have used almost every circle cutter on the market. Fiskars is the one I used for a long time, but it is difficult to use, IMHO. The dang thing was always shifting on me so the circle would not be perfect. I have both the oval and circle cutters and they are sitting in a box waiting to go in a garage sale in the spring.

I've also used the circle scissor and I hated it. It was okay for bigger circles, but once you got down to the tiny ones, it was harder to use. It's sitting in the same box as the Fiskars cutters.

I've also tried the CM cutter. It's pretty nice but I like the Coluzzle the best of any system I've tried. I can see where I'm going to be cutting without any problem. As long as you hold the knife straight up and down and push it all the way in when you cut, you can get accurate cuts almost every time. It takes a little practice, just like any system. You do need to buy the companion template set if you like to have 1/8" mats on any photos you crop. In addition, there are a ton of other templates out there so it's very versatile.
