    the window sheets - both the thick ones and the thinner ones.

    Does the little paper cutter work on them? (Not the table top one.) How about the circle scissors cutter. I don't want to ruin any of my tools when I get mine. :confused:

    I know they can be run through the Big Shot OK, even the thick ones, but I don't know how they were cut into quarters first. (These were used in the Big Shot at a class I attended and were pre-cut.)

    Thanks in advance. :)

    For the medium and light weight window sheets, I just use my Fisker's cutter. Works just fine. I have a package of the heavier weight window sheets but haven't figured out what to do with it, so it still sits in its package, uncut.

    I used my table top cutter on all of them. Sorry. I don't think the fiskars or the circle cutter's blades are big enough. Craft Rubber Scissors should work, too.

    Circle Scissors works fine on the medium weight window sheets. Used it at club to add a protective cover to the clock from "Sense of Time" and it worked great!

    Thank you both for your replies; at least I know I'll be safe with the cutter I have. Also glad to know about the circle scissors working. I think I'll just try my cutter on the thick ones when they arrive. Or if I see the gal who ran the class where we used the thick ones before that, I'll check with her.
    Thanks again for your help and have a good day. :)

    I don't have the heavy-weight window sheets from SU, but I do have heavy-weight transparency sheets from the office supply store, and I just cut them with my fiskars cutter too. Haven't had any problems except that they do dull the blade a bit quicker, maybe? Anyway, hope this helps!
