I open up a lot of mail at the office! Normally when a new package comes in, I'll break out the box cutters and cut what I need to get it open. When it's all said and done, I've occasionally cut what's inside the box. This isn't an option I want when I'm opening up unknown things.
I've seen letter openers in stores for years, but I never felt like dropping the money to get one. When I recently came into possession of some extra stock of Duane Reade club cards, I knew I had my chance!
Step 1: Materials
