I’m over on Paper Crafts Connection, talking about the i-magicut ribbon cutting tool from Imaginisce.
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.
Again, test yourself with the tool. Your ribbons and materials may be different than mine so your results may be different.
Something else I found helpful when using the tool was to keep a few clothespins handy.
It just helped when I folded ribbon over and wanted to put it in the tool to keep it in place.
Here are a couple more cards I made with the tool.
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.
