Cutter Kit Tool

I love this portable cutter kit (106958-$16.95 on page 191 of SU's 2009-2010 idea book and catalog). This convenient and portable kit includes all of the tools you'll need to cut, perforate, score, and distress your cards and projects. The perforating tool is great for bookmarks, coupon books, and more, the distressing tool is super to distress the edges of your cards, the scissors to cut, and a portable scoring blade.

If you would like to order one of these portable cutter kits, check out my web site at, send an email to me at or give me a phone call at 336-538-4996.
