Today's Hot Tip is a simple one, but will help save a lot of frustration when attempting to fussy cut images.
I've printed a little digital image ready for a Christmas card and now I want to fussy cut around the outside. It's not an overly complicated image, but there are a few twists and turns that I need to navigate with my little scissors.
One of the difficulties of fussy cutting is managing the offcuts. As you can see in the photo above, the excess card stock from around the image actually gets in the way of my scissors and my hand while I'm trying to cut. This can lead to cutting mistakes and a good deal of frustration.
The solution is very simple. Just take a moment to roughly cut around the image, leaving just a 1/4" or so of excess card stock. There will be a lot less to obstruct the scissors and your hand as you make your way around the image. Simple!
