How to Use a Guillotine Paper Trimmer

Raise your hand if you have hundreds (or even thousands!) of paper scraps in your stash that you can’t bear to throw away, but don’t really know what to do with. Trust me, I’m right there with you. Both of my hands are raised! In the video below, I’m not only going to show you a fun project to use up some of those scraps, but also a tool to help you do it!

I’ve had a Tonic guillotine paper trimmer for a few years, and it immediately became one of my favorite and most used tools.

Here’s a video to show you how awesome it is!
