Scrapbooking can be a creative and worthwhile way to preserve memories and family history. Many devoted scrapbookers decorate their pages with cutout shapes. However, to produce a vast array of shapes from scrapbooking paper one must become proficient with tedious scissor-work, or buy an expensive and cumbersome assortment of paper punchers that give fixed, limited results.


Propose an improved way to produce repeatable, custom shapes from scrapbooking paper without using an electrical or electronic mechanism. Your solution must be:

(1) portable, cost-effective (under $50 at retail), and mechanical.

(2) able to accommodate a wide range of shapes, from geometric to letters and numbers, to abstract ones like dogs or skeleton keys.

(3) easily usable and intuitive.

Please describe your idea in detail. Provide sufficient sketches, annotations, and mockups of your proposed solution. Finally, do not simply propose products that are readily available to consumers, but submit something that is creative, innovative, and improved.

    Submissions will be graded on the following criteria:
  • Meets Deliverables
  • Creativity
  • Clarity
