Tips for Fussy Cutting – first of all, what’s fussy cutting? This is the technique of using Paper Snips to trim around images from Designer Series Paper or stamped images (it really does matter – use good tiny tip scissors for best results!). When I fussy cut, I generally leave a 1/8″ margin all the way around my image. This adds a halo effect that makes the image stand out from the background. After all – you put that work in. Don’t you want to show it off?

Where to Fussy Cut – got a long car ride? A flight? (Yes, you can take Paper Snips through a TSA checkpoint.) Sitting in front of the tv to binge watch your latest show? Waiting at hockey practice or a music lesson? Grab your pile of rough cut papers (the quick and dirty cutting to just make the images manageable) and sit and fussy cut during those free moments.

Directions for Fussy Cutting – This is the biggest secret. DON’T move your scissors. Don’t turn them, don’t angle them, just keep them straight forward and instead use your free hand to turn the paper. It’s like magic, but by taking long straight cuts you can get very detailed and smooth cutting.
