I would always suggest a paper trimmer with shaped blades I have a purple cow, that is easy to use, and it is so lovely having the choice of edges. I have the edge scissors, but always manage to muck it up x Leigh x

Hi Lorraine, I'm glad you asked the question this is on my wish list for my birthday too, which is also in May. I was looking at either the Woodware one or the Purple Cow, they both have good reports. I'm also looking forward to ditching the craft knife and ruler...

Hi, I would stay away from the Purple cow, as I have the large one for a couple of years now and the screw on the trimmer comes off a lot. I have about 5 different trimmers and would recommend the X-cut trimmer, works really well and is standing up to being used a lot. I have a small one and a large one, both are great. Hope this helps.
