I love new tools for crafting. When I saw the new mat and cutting tools from WRMK being demonstrated at my LSS-it shouted cool and practical. Who can resist that?
The WRMK cutting mat is big! It measures 20×16-so there is plenty of room for your 12×12 layouts. It also contains angled lines-which is fabulous! Now you can line up you paper and cut at any angle-throw out those protractors ladies-or whatever other method you’ve used
In addtion to the mat, WRMK also came out with some really cool cutting tools to go along with it.
If your not fond of or have a difficult time using a craft knife, you can purchase the Crafter’s Magnetic Anywhere Twist Trimmer. This is a ruler and cutting tool in one. It measure about 17.5 in. in length and works perfectly with the magnetic mat. Not to mention it’s very simple to use. Just lay your paper on the mat, put the Twist Trimmer on top, twist the purple knob (this makes the blade come out), run it across where you want to cut and your done. Plus once you release your twist on the knob-the blade pops back in! How cool is that!? Oh, and the magnetic ability of the cutter is SUPER strong-it does not slip around when you are using it.
My favorite addition to the mat has got to be the Crafter’s Magnetic Circle Cutter. No more tracing a dinner plate and hand cutting to create a large circle.
The WRMK Magnetic Circle Cutter creates circles from 4″- 12″. The WRMK magnets will come in handy for using this tool-they are incredibly strong. Using this tool is a two hand process and you will want something to make you paper stable. The magnets are also fabulous for the Magnetic Mat and Magnetic Ruler combination and using the Magnetic Twist Trimmer.
Have a fabulous Friday!!
*These items will be replacing my BG cutting mat, magnetic ruler and magnets. The WRMK ruler is incredibly stronger and does not slip around when I cut my paper or chipboard. The WRMK mat is considerably bigger, which I find helpful. The magnets I rec’d as a gift with purchase of the tools you see listed in my post. If you have the BG magnets-they would work fine. Any of these WRMK tools would work with your BG mat if you have one.
**WRMK also sells The Crafter’s Ultimate Cutting Tool Kit. This kit does not contain the same items listed in this post. It contains a different circle cutter and a rotary trimmer.
