Question Asked:

I know this is probably a strange request, but I am looking to make a special project.

Is there anyone reading this who owns a UCHIDA Corru-Gator Paper Crimper machine thing? It looks really good at crimping different papers. And it gets really good reviews. But I was wondering if there was a way to make it crimp in a circle rather than straight across, if this makes any sense.

Now, I am thinking about it, I suppose it doesn't make sense. What I want to create is an effect like a star burst, but in the corrugated paper. But I suppose it would need a base plate and a roller that is like a cone. So it can roll around in a circle rather than rolling straight.

I will probably get this paper crimper anyway. I know UCHIDA is a great brand and made some fun tools for crafting. Does anyone know of a crimping machine that can do the star burst effect I am trying to describe?

I thought it would make a great background to a card, to give it a really great 3d effect. I wonder if I could crimp a straight strip of card and sort of tease it into a circle, like a crimped border?

Does anyone think this would work? Do you have a UCHIDA Corru-Gator Paper Crimper? Can you tell me if you have discovered any cool hints and tips or clever effects you have stumbled on.

I like getting these tools and trying to use them in interesting and different way, that they were not necessarily designed for, I'm a bit naughty like that.

Also does anyone know any crimping rollers that do other effects, maybe like a brick pattern effect or wavy lines. I do a lot of icing effects and there are loads of icing rollers that can do all sorts of prints or embossing effects into icing and they come in rollers too.

Thanks fellow crafters
