What is our Gyro-Cut Craft and Hobby Cutting Tool?
Our Gyro-Cut craft and hobby cutting tool is an ergonomically designed handheld craft cutting tool with a 360 degree rotating head so you can cut complex, detailed shapes easily and quickly. And unlike scalpel style craft knives the GYRO-CUT blade will not easily cut through skin in normal use, so it is much safer to use than other craft cutting knives.
With a Gyro-Cut tool you can easily cut shapes and patterns out of paper, vinyl, cardstock, plastic sheets and more with ease. The Gyro-Cut smoothly slices through materials with careful precision and can cut out even the smallest details. The Gyro-Cut’s slender handle is specially designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand and to be held like a pencil so you can cut out shapes, words and designs with easy control and dexterity.
The Gyro-Cut is an incredibly versatile hobby and craft cutting tool that can be used for a wide variety of DIY craft and hobby projects. Here are some of the DIY craft projects the Gyro-Cut can be used for:

First, spray your self-healing hobby cutting mat with Repositionable Spray Adhesive. This adhesive spray will help hold the paper/magazine/other material in place while you cut out your scraps. When you are finished cutting, you can easily peel the scrapbooking cutouts off the hobby cutting mat.
Then, lay the paper, magazine or stencil and paper down on the mat (whatever material you want to cut the scraps out of). Hold your Gyro-Cut Craft and Hobby Cutting Tool like a pencil and cut out the shapes you want for your scrapbooking project. Hold the Gyro-Cut face down perpendicular to the surface you are cutting on, rather than at an angle, for best results.
With the Gyro-Cut tool you can easily cut out waves, circles, spirals, any shape you want! The Gyro-Cut tool blade will swivel as you cut, so you can cut curving, intricate or detailed shapes.
