  • another question-so sorry

    Sorry! How do I cut my own frames?? Should I use a fiskars shape cutter and templates?? Is there any tool around that makes this easier that I don't know about. Also should I use card or paper.
    Thanks so much again

    For cutting frames I use card with the fiskars shape cutter which there are quite a few templates for and there is also an X-Cut cutter with stencils...

      Alternatively, you can just use whatevere card or peper you have that suits, a good sharp scalpel on a cutting-mat or old placemat, a metal ruler or square, and a fair bit of care & attention. It's old-fashioned, but it works!

        I have a cricut machine but like scorch mentioned, I just tend to use a cutting mat, craft knife and a metal ruler. Nice and easy

          Good point well made!! There are so many gadgets on the market these days that the cheap, simple and easy, albeit old fashioned, methods seem to be forgotten about.

            Hehe, true enough. I often think that the cost of all these things, the sheer number of gadgets avalable, and the feeling that you can't make anything without them, can put people off, and it's a shame... especially when you can often get just as good a result with things you already have. Until you're making 50 cards a day, of course, but then that's another case altogether!
