2 in 1 Paper Trimmer Review by Kate KesslerPurple Cows, Inc.

Are you looking for a paper trimmer for crafting, scrapbooking, artwork, trimming photos, or any other cutting needs? The folks at Purple Cows, Inc. sent in this 21� long by 14� wide paper trimmer for review and I have not stopped using it since. The features include:
- A 12" guillotine cutter with a safety blade and cutting guide that cuts up to 10 sheets.
- A 12" rotary trimmer that cuts up to 10 sheets .
- An alignment grid and paper guide (very helpful for precise cutting!)
- Carry handle and blade lock for safe storage around children and easy transport.
I have been using this over and over for various projects (I mean a LOT of cutting!) for many months and the blades have not dulled at all. I am impressed that something that is plastic and might appear to be less sturdy than say, an all-metal or wooden trimmer/cutter, is really not at all. It is very sturdy and quite a help to me! For only $44.95 at the time of this writing, it is a very affordable addition to any homeschool craft station!
