Cut cardboard with an electric carving knife

Ha! We should all have such smart, practical friends! From Melissa:

I was given an electric carving knife as a wedding present with a note that went something like this: This is great as a carving knife, but even better for all those times you need to cut cardboard for your childrens’ projects. I have yet to use the knife for my own children, but as a teacher I use it all the time. So nice and easy!

    An electric carving knife is also great for cutting the foam used for things like chair cushions.

    Don’t forget the wedding gift punchbowl –the only accessory you need for a swell kids haircut!
