GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — We're exactly one week until Christmas and you'll likely have a lot of gifts to wrap in the coming days.

Something a lot of us seem to face are those jagged edges, when cutting wrapping paper with your typical scissors. Now, of course, you can just tuck in the paper, to hide the uneven edges. But is there an easier way?

In this latest edition of "Try It Before You Buy It" we're putting this wrapping paper cutter to the test. We got it on Amazon for about $9.

The product claims to give a straight and smooth cut every time. But can it really save you time and some sanity this Christmas?
