We don’t know about you but we do not like cutting out planner stickers. We equate cutting out free planner stickers that we print out to getting a tooth pulled or water torture. It takes us forever to cut the stickers out and then we spend three times as long peeling the sticker off. (Are we the only planner girls with this struggle?)
Don’t get us wrong- We LOVE free printable planner stickers! The gracious ladies who design such gorgeous planners stickers and offer them for free from their sites are like angels. We have to watch our planning budgets and these ladies save us so much money!
We just do not like the time that goes into cutting and peeling off printable stickers! Sure, we could invest in a Cricut, Silhouette, or the like but unfortunately we don’t have the money to spend on that kind of thing right now. (But, hey, if you have an extra laying around, we wouldn’t turn it down!)

Ladies, our planning world has been rocked once more!
Gyro Cut is an amazing craft tool that cuts thin materials like paper, vinyl, tissue paper, and foil. It is hand-help with a 360° rotating blade. Our klutzy selves appreciate the fact that it will not cut human skin with normal use.
After some practice with Gyro Cut, we have come to love our free printable planner stickers once more!
Why We Love Gyro Cut As An Affordable Planner Sticker Cutting Tool
The #1 reason that Gyro Cut rocks is that it has tremendously decreased our time for cutting out stickers. We heart our Happy Planners and adore them even more with planner stickers like boxes and sweet extras. We do find, however, that it takes longer to decorate and that is not good for these busy homeschooling and blogging mamas.
Gyro Cut was a bit tricky to master-at first and has a bit of a learning curve. It takes some time to adjust to the feel of using it. Using too much pressure will cut all the way through the paper, but not enough pressure means you will hardly cut through at all.
It also seems to work easier if you have a more steady hand. At first, we weren’t really sure how we felt about it, but with some practice, we both finally got the hang of it! And, boy, Gyro Cut is fun to use!
The best part of the Gyro Cut is that its much easier on your bank account with its very affordable price.
Tips for Using the Gyro Cut
- Use a cutting mat or the like (Amy uses a cork board square she had in her craft stash)
- Leave part of the white edge around your stickers for a cleaner look
- Practice on older stickers or regular paper to get the hang of it before using on your good stuff
Would we recommend the Gyro Cut to our readers? Absolutely! It’s such an affordable alternative to sticker cutting, and takes much less storage space.
