Caution: This project calls for the use of very sharp knives.
BE RESPONSIBLE WITH STABBY, CUTTY THINGS, M'KAY?
Step 1: Materials
- Craft knife (X-acto, etc.) or very sharp, fine-tipped scissors. Craft knives are better, though.
- Cutting mat. I find flattened cereal boxes are excellent for this. (Don't use corrugated cardboard as a cutting mat. The knives will just punch right through the top layer into the spaces between, making your cuts too large and destroying any fine details there might be in your design.)
- Various design templates and stencils
