Ready for another round of Tooling Around with Teri?
Ribbon is a staple for us paper crafters so I’m talking today about the i-magicut, a cool tool that cuts and seals the ends of ribbons.
Imaginisce just introduced this cool tool a few months ago. At around $20, this tool won’t break the bank. In my opinion, it’s a must-have for any paper crafter who loves using ribbon.
The tool is simple, really. It consists of two pieces connected by a hinge. The bottom piece serves as the tool’s base and has marks so you can line your ribbon up when you go to cut it. In the top piece there is a button and hot wire. You press and hold the button down to push down the wire to cut and seal the ribbon.
Let me show you how it works.
Quick, painless, and no frayed edges! Ooh la la!
One of the cool things about the i-magicut is you can also create notches.
I used the tool to make all three of these cards.
I cut and sealed them each one of them with the tool. You’ll notice some are notched, some are cut at an angle, and some are cut straight.
I’ll be back tomorrow to talk about a fun distressing tool from Prima.
