Tip - How to Trim Scrap Card Stock

Tip, Cardstock, Trim, Scraps

Today let's talk about the scraps of Card Stock and Designer Series Paper that we save.  I'm a frugal girl, like many of you.  Now don't get me wrong I have my limits, but so many times I have slices of paper that are just to good to throw in the trash.  The problem is they are usually long narrow strips and when I need to trim them down in size I have absolutely nothing to hang on to when I'm trimming them.  In the video below you are going to have a light bulb moment, I promise.  If this tip is not something you are already aware of, you're going to want to track me down and hug my neck :)
