Worktable Wednesday

During craft show season, I engage in poorly-planned, marathon studio sessions. Inevitably, this leads to the acquisition of little-known ailments, such as Kutrimmer Backache.

All of the pages in my books are hand-cut and for that reason, I’m extremely thankful that I have a Kutrimmer. I used to cut all of my pages by hand with a ruler and a pencil. Notsofun.

Today I cut 120 full-size sheets of paper (26″ x 40″). In book math, 120 full size sheets = 37 photo albums.

I’m looking at the last picture and it doesn’t look like a lot of paper, but it really is.

To put it into perspective, 120 sheets of paper amounts to 96,000 square inches. Translate those inches into yards and you get 74.074074 square yards.

Or 0.000023913 square miles.

Yes, I’m a math geek.

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
