The other type of paper trimmer that we keep at Spark a Smile is a Guillotine trimmer. This tool is great for cutting pieces in bulk, or thicker types of paper.

The downside is that it takes up much more table space, and isn’t as portable.

Raise the blade, and remove the children from the premises.

Place your paper. It helps to push the paper up against the backstop to cut a straight line.

Then, simply lower the blade to slice the paper (as a guillotine might slice off a body part, I guess?).  
Please watch your fingers! Spark a Smile has a 365-day safety record and we’d like to keep that going!
