Tip for the Week

While I was working on my DT project for this week, I was wasting alot of cuts that were ripping when I popped them out from the paper or spending too long using my craft knife to try to save them. So, to try to keep this from happening, this is what I came up with. Turn the paper over and sand the back of the cut. This thins out the paper and the design will come out with out having to cut the design by hand. This is also helpful for intricate cuts that you risk tearing when popping out of the paper. I hope this saves you some time away from the craft knife. Happy crafting!
