Reply To: Paper: Tear or Cut?

Sandra, I have always cut my paper, use a ruler, draw a pencil line then cut it. I wish I could get the decal edge though. I’m afraid it won’t rip right, I guess it probably has something to do with being left handed and unconsciously thinking it won’t rip for me, silly I know as it wouldn’t make a difference. I’m actually thinking of buying a wire bound 9×12 stillman and birn so then I can just rip out the paper and cut off the bits, it’ll keep the paper together in the wire binding but I can also be free to work in one sheet instead of a bound book. Haven’t decided yet.
