Having the right cutting tools can make all the difference in creating your scrapbook page. Guest Tracy White offers tips on when and how they should be used. Here, White covers the finer points of using the paper trimmer, circle cutter and precision scissors.
Use a paper trimmer to make precise cuts through cardstock. The clear ruler allows you to see exactly where the cut is being made.
Circles can be really hard to perfect using scissors. Circle cutters make the job a one-step process—resulting in a perfectly round cutout.
Precision scissors are a must when cutting out small items, especially lettering. Cursive letters can be exceptionally difficult to cut out. Keep a pair of precision scissors handy for those delicate items.
