A-List of Favorite Gifts for Crafty Types

I have included a list of seven items that every paper crafter will appreciate.

Trimming paper neatly and accurately requires several tools. Good scissors are a must. Every crafter should have one large pair of high-quality scissors that fit comfortably in their hand, and a smaller pair of high-quality scissors that can make precision cuts.

A paper trimmer is also necessary because it has a measurement grid and paper alignment bars. These help the crafter make accurately sized cuts.

Last but not least is the paper guillotine cutter. This is not cheap but is accurate, durable, and cuts more than one sheet at a time. Another big plus is that the blade doesn’t need to be replaced. What a wonderful gift for the crafter in your life.

There are two ways to emboss paper, by hand and by machine. Hand embossing is done with embossing stencils and a stylus. The alternative method is machine embossing. The machine embossing process is much quicker and covers larger areas of the paper.

Most people who have made papercrafts for awhile consider purchasing an electronic die cut machine. These devices make it possible to cut paper, fabric, vinyl and more with precision and accuracy.

There are many types of die cutters available, and a lot depends on the technical savvy of the paper crafter. Some machines are user-friendly right out of the box, and others have a higher learning curve.

If you are considering buying a die-cut machine for a crafter, it might be best just to come right out and ask them which one they prefer. It will save you trouble later on. Trust me on this one.

In Conclusion

This is just a shortlist of possible awesome gifts for your paper crafter. If you go to a craft store paper section, you will find further things that your crafter needs and wants. The choices are endless.
