The Cutting edge – Tonic guillotines.

Posted on 30 Apr 2015

I have a whole arsenal of trimmers and guillotines in my work space.  But I have a special few that make my life so much easier.
My favorites are the Tonic guillotines – big and small. I use my Tonic guillotines all the time for everything and they simply work.
I cut anything and everything from my photos, photo matts to small stamped pieces of cardstock and paper with them.
so sweetFor this double page layout I created a whole bunch of stamped elements. I used different coloured inks to stamp my design onto
white cardstock and then trimmed them smaller using my Tonic guillotine. It took me a few seconds to trim my stamped images
smaller and into different sizes in a few easy steps.

While the guillotines come in different sizes my favourites are the 6×8.5 inch and the 6.25 inch guillotine.
I also have the 6×12 inch guillotine from Tonic and use it all the time for larger cuts.
This truly is the best and most versatile guillotines for cutting photos, paper and cardstock.
