  • Cardboard Problems!

    Is there an effective method of cutting cardboard? When i cut it with scissors, its rather labourious and the cuts dont come out neatly. Is there any other method?

    Also, is there some sort of special glue to glue cardboard to cardboard or paper to cardboard, etc.. If not, anything that will work well in that situation?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Foxillusion,
    Two ideas here, it depends on whether you want straight lines, or like to cut a shape out. If its straight lines, then you can just use a "paper trimmer" but one that is strong enough to cut through thin card. For shapes, something like a craft knife can be neater than scissors.

    With regards to the glue, I recently started using "glue dots" they are like very very very thin sticky pads that are really easy to use, and mess less!! I love them!!

    Hope this helps some

      To cut the card you could use a ruler and a scalpel/craft knife.
