Tuesday's Tip

This week's tip is not new, but it is a good one that bears repeating. I have been at Club Scrap Retreat making a variety of goodies, but also talking technique, supplies, etc. During lunch one day, several of us were discussing paper cutters and the dulling effects of some materials. Although some cutters are self-sharpening, they do need occasional help. Cutting aluminum foil several times helps keep the edge on the blade. I usually tear off a few inches from a roll, and cut through it several times. Since foil is pretty thin, you may need to fold it in half until you get the hang of cutting it.
