Stampin' Up Fiskars Paper Trimmer

I wonder how many Stampin' Up! customers & Demonstrators are like me & never read the small print??!

I bought my Fiskars Paper Trimmer from Stampin' Up quite a few months ago & probably like many people who have bought this products ripped it out of the packaging & got to work with it.

I love my trimmer but have always struggled to swap the cutting or scoring blades & at class all of my ladies have commented on how difficult it is to swap them. I even managed to cut both my index fingers swapping the cutting blade at one class which was very embarrassing.

Not any more!!

Today I got another Fiskars Trimmer & when throwing away the packaging I noticed this instruction on the back.

The groove on my trimmer is at the top of the rail at the same end as the Fiskars Logo.

You push the blade or scorer to that end & as it reaches the groove you push down with your thumb & pull up with your index finger & viola!!
Now I might be telling you something you already know here but I'm hoping that the light bulb will come on for some of you the same way it has for me this morning!!


  1. YES I am just like you cannot wait tear off the packaging and regret later My friend has one of these LETHAL.

  2. Never been an issue for me as my blades keep falling out when they get t that groove!

  3. In the words of the famous Michael Caine - "Not a lot of people know that"

    P.S. I didn't!! - most useful

  4. Read your post earlier today! have been crafting and using my cutter this evening.... put it to the test....what a difference ...so simple ,thanks for sharing........like you and most others i never read instructions !!!Wilma.x

  5. Yes I HAD figured this one out (although I'm not much of a one for instructions). Now all I need to know is why doesn't my scoring blade score all the way to the edge?? I sent one back but the replacement is just the same ....

  6. Thanks for sharing such a nice article. I love your writing. Your idea is mind blowing that's why i would like to appreciate your work.
