i-magicut Intensive - Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of our Intenstive with the new i-Magicut Ribbon Cutter/Sealer. This tool will solve all your misery with those frayed ribbon ends!

Here's another great video by a former Imaginisce Desginer, Erin Bassett, showing how to use this fun tool.

Our Design Team have been enjoying this tool so much and are we excited to share with you today some more of their fabulous projects!


"I wanted to make a summery card and gift-tag set, for a "pool party" kid's birthday (we go to a lot of those). The new Makin' Waves collection was perfect for this, and I love how the I-Magicut enabled me to add ribbon and other trims in a clean-cut way. For example, if you look at the edges of the tag, it ends perfectly at the corners, with no fraying. If I hadn't sealed the edges, I would have had to wrap them to the back, which would not have worked so well on a tag. I was also happy to discover that the tool works great on trims - such as the trim I used for "water" and the iridescent trim I used to make the banner on the card - both had several different fibers interwoven throughout, but all got sealed off with the I-Magicut."

"If you have a little girl you know that hairbows are a staple in your girl's "wardrobe." Thanks to Imaginisce you can create your own custom hair accessories and thanks to the I-Magicut your bows will last because the ribbon won't fray! The I-Magicut also saves a step because you cut and seal the ends of the ribbon strips at the same time. It's brilliant!"
"I also used the I-Top and the Twist Daddies for two of my bows and created the center to match using strips of overlapping matching ribbon. Simply overlap the ribbon strips, crossing them at the center, adhere with a tiny bit of glue using the I-Bond glue gun, and then place in the I-Top tool just like you would paper to create your twist daddies! You can then attach them to an I-Top alligator clip like I have with the aqua bow, or an I-Top headband like I did with the pink bow. Since they twist off you can put a new bow on the headband each day! I have step-by-step photos and a tutorial on how I made them on my blog."

"One of my favorite things to alter are alphabet. You can get it in different forms, there's a paper mache, wood and metal. I have a little stock of alphabet projects sitting in my craft room. I just love the way it looks. It doesn't have to spell a word, it's just random letters I found everywhere. Of course my favorite letter to alter is "A". :) Today's project is a lower case A, and I love the shape of it! I used the gorgeous "Makin Waves" collection to cover it and then embellished the edge with Hot Rocks Accent Cristals. I also used the new i-top tool to make the middle part of the flowers. To complete the project I added some ribbons and I am so happy with the new i-Magicut tool. I love how it gives a clean and smooth cut, great for all your ribbon cutting needs!"

HandmadebyTLC said...

Well, I can tell you that as a cut template designer and artist, I use ribbon every time I craft but most importantly, I will be able to make hair bows and flowers for my greeting cards with a gift projects. I want to share a post from today that I had to redo the bow twice because I am currently using a lighter and it FREQUENTLY burns too much of the ribbon away! (especially organze) very tempermental! Feel free to come see what I mean *smiles* http://handmadebytlc.blogspot.com/2012/03/whimsy-march-release-day-and-mini-hop.html

B. Poteraj said...

I would use it to seal the ends of the ribbons I use on cards. That's what I mostly make.

AmyJ said...

Well I love using ribbon on Cards and layouts as well as most of my projects I do. I would be able to use ribbon more on everything without the worry of fraying ends of ribbon. I would make more bows too if I won one. I love the i-Magicut. Thank you so much for the chance to win one.

Niki Estes said...

Looks like a great tool! I create a lot of cards and this would be a great tool to seal the ribbon.

Aimee Kidd said...

I would make a bunch of hair bows for my baby girl if I'd won an i-Magicut! Those bows that Tiffany made are super cute!!

Summer Braxton said...

This tool is so cool! I'd get to work on some hair bows if I had one. And we're moving soon, so some home decor (new ribbon wreaths) might be in order as well.

Amy E said...

This is amazing! If I had one of these, I'd be making some hair bows for my little girl (she loves to accessorize)! It'd also make my gifts look a lot nicer with ribbons!

JaniceA said...

I would make ribbons for my granddaughter's hair, use ribbons on LOs and use ribbons on cards! I really want one of these.

Snips and Snails said...

I would mostly use the imagicut for embellishments for my scrapbook layouts, but I'm sure it would also get used for hairbows for my nieces.

mavis carter said...

My 3 year old grand-daughter loves skirts that "twirl" when she dances. I would make her a ribbon dance skirt with ribbons of all lengths for max twirling.

PhotoArtbyChelle said...

Since I make a lot of cards I would probably use it to decorate a card.

Regina aka Mrs. Ham said...

I really liked Erin's video and was thinking about making a ribbon chandelier for the new baby girl we have arriving in late June! This would make the process SO much faster! GREAT job DT on all the projects! :)

jrugg said...

What a cool tool-would love to one one of these!

Bethany Becker said...

Love the projects. I would create bows for nieces, use it to make flowers for my scrapbooking layouts and cards, and to just cut ribbon for my crafting needs.

NinaN said...

I would continue making layouts and cards with touches of ribbon. Only instead of hunting down the bbq lighter to melt the ends, I could use your awesome tool! And no more worry about accidently lighting the ribbon fire!

Jill said...

I have so much ribbon... I NEED to use it. so this tool could help that right? (or enable me to buy more more more)

SandiB said...

I would love to have this new tool. I use alot of ribbon on my cards and layouts. I love making the v-cuts on the ribbons. Thanks for the chance to win.

Becky Dunham said...

What great projects today! I love the tip on tags and the way this lovely tool makes it so I don't have to wrap ribbon to the back! So, I guess the question is what wouldn't I make? I love to use ribbon in all my crafts so to be able to do it without frays would be so lovely! I am working on some mini albums right now and learning to make some flowers with ribbon so I would love to win this I-Magicut! Thanks for the chance :)

Melinda said...

I didn't think I needed this, but what sealed the deal (pun intended :D) is the sealer ability of the I-Magicut! Can't wait to use up my ribbon stash!

dlwidder said...

I would use on ribbons for cards, layouts and especially the rings on a mini-album! Thanks for a chance to win an awesome product!

Helen said...

I would create lots of cards like I always do and not worry about those pesky frayed edges :)

lynda said...

I'm almost finished with a mini-album held together with book rings. I would use the i-magicut on the ribbons I tie to the book rings.
