    I tried my hand at making a badge, and for the most part I really like how it came out! But I'm terrible at cutting things, and was wondering if anyone had tips that help them!

    I used scissors because my knife is missing :')

    The biggest deal in cutting good shapes with scissors is to move the object, not the scissors. Any curves should be actively developed as opposed to being approximated by straight cuts.

    As for the inner corners around the lettering, don't be afraid of slightly overlapping your cuts- no one notices a tiny little X compared to the soft little puff resulting from pulled paper bits.

    And don't be afraid to practice, either- try snipping up some notecards or something if you feel *at all* uncertain.

    Otherwise, just roll with it. No one will notice except you, so do as well as *you* want.
