I'm in love with a paper cutter.

I first noticed her months ago at Costco, hanging out in the office supplies section. I glanced over admiring her features, but quickly moved by knowing my cart was already filled and my wallet far too empty. 

It never failed. Each time I visited, I was drawn to the same section, each time noticing features such as the rotary blade, plus guillotine cutter, that you can attach for larger measurements, or separate for traveling projects.
A recent visit, I was temped enough to pick up the box. I flipped it around to noticed the 7 (yes SEVEN) blade types. Ahhhhh. My heart did a quick pitter patter, however I resisted and put it down once more. 

Then, it was Valentine's Day. 

Nothing. Well, not until the day after...

My very own Purple Cow 2 in 1 paper cutter from Costco. 

I LOVE everything about it that I thought I would: the 2 different sections that connect, or not, the amazing and handy measuring lines,  the different blade options (I really love the Perforated one!)

Thank you Alan! You must have noticed my drooling.

  1. Congratulations on your paper cutter. I hope you put it to good use.

  2. So glad you got it ! Enjoy and make some beautiful things:)

  3. Awesome! My paper cutter is one of my MOST IMPORTANT craft tools (even when I don't scrap book)
    I just bought a new cheap one at target, thinking it would suffice for my purposes.... but dummy me, I only got an 8 inch wide paper cutter! I couldn't believe it! How am I supposed to cut a full size piece of paper long wise????!?!?! With SCISSORS?????? ya right.

  4. I have had the same paper cutter for years now and I was just noticing that it doesn't cut completely straight. So now I am in the market for a new one. I am glad I came across your post! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
