Head over there first to learn about the basics of the tool and to see those projects.
I want to share a few extra tips here today for the i-magicut, as well as some additional projects I made with the tool.
I want to disclose that whenever I do a Tooling Around post, I spend a lot of time playing with the tool and trying different things with it so I feel comfortable making stuff with it.
So I did my own unofficial tests with the i-magicut, trying different types of ribbons and materials with it. I recommend that you do the same if you purchase a tool. It’s a great way to get a feel for how quickly the tool cuts ribbon and also what will work with it.
I had really good luck using with a number of different types of ribbons. Here’s just a sample of good cuts I got with it. Not pictured is polyester twill tape. It worked good, too!
And here’s a sample of some of the surfaces I wasn’t able to cut with it. Note the brown marks.
Something else I found helpful when using the tool was to keep a few clothespins handy.
I created this funky bow by using the tool to cut notches and “v” shapes in a couple pieces of ribbon and then layering them together.
All the ribbon here was cut with i-magicut. I purposely cut the ribbons at an angles so I could make these funky borders.
That’s all for now. Be back later, gators.
See you again soon.
