My decorative-cut scissors are mashing the paper when I cut – why?
There are a few tips to perfectly-cut edges using the decorative scissors. First, use a very light touch when cutting. You may want to cut into a piece of aluminum foil periodically to help sharpen the scissors. Also, different types of papers will have an effect on your results. Handmade papers, for example, may not be as easily cut with decorative scissors due to the amount of fibers running through the paper. Experiment on different types of paper, and try different styles of decorative-edge scissors to find your favorites!
