Coluzzle is the original template cutting system with its patented templates, cutting mat, swivel knife, and scoring tool that lets any crafter cut precise shapes and designs quickly and accurately. It is not a machine, but a system of hand tools. You buy individual template sheets that you can use over and over.All Coluzzle® Brand Templates are made using a laser to cut each channel. The width of the channel is controlled so that the Guarded™ Swivel Knife will fit down into the channel to cut perfect shapes time and time again. They sell alphabet templates, tickets, tags, shapes, etc. Many different sizes of each shape are included on the templates. They have cool Coluzzle templates for envelopes and cards, small boxes as well as typical die-cut shapes. While the nested Coluzzle® templates offer a great variety of shapes to work with, they have an almost unlimited creative potential with a trick that Provo calls "cheating." There are several ways that each of the templates can be cheated. See the tips area of the ProvoCraft website.
