This cutting template was originally designed to cut 4" x 6" photos quickly, easily, and accurately into 24 1" squares in just 8 straight cuts. It makes the creation of a photo mosaic scrapbook page a snap! But it also has angled alignment markings so that you can cut any size square in 1/2" increments, or 60 degree diamonds in 1/2" increments, or 45 degree diamonds in 1/2" increments, or hexagons of various sizes. Layering shapes of 1/2" different sizings gives you great 1/4" borders. This is a great cutting tool for Quilted Scrapbook pages, Weaving paper crafts, Iris Folding projects and Tea Bag projects.
