I have the Pink Paislee Spring Fling paper and I have seen in the gallery where people are cutting the flowers out of the paper...like this:

How are they doing that so nice and neatly?? With a xacto knife??? I would love to do it but am not sure how to do it!!!

I do that with my Cutterbee scissors. Take a while, but I love the outcome

I will use my fine tip scissors as well, and it is very painstaking! And sometimes I'll get out my craft/exacto knife to cut into some smaller areas.

I have the second craft knife attached which I really like and can't wait for the swivel tip version!

I have had good luck with the Bo Bunny craft knife. I like it because it comes with a bunch of replacement blades.

I have the cutterbee knife...wonder if that will work ok? I do not have any small scissors except for the decorative edge ones...I have a regular size scissors...sharp but maybe too big and clumsy?

Should I buy something else to do this with?

I have both the cutterbees and the Fiskars micro tip scissors, and hands-down I prefer the Fiskars for intricate cuts like this. I also love their fingertip craft knife.

I cut out the flowers on that paper too, and I used my cutterbees

I actually use embroidery scissors for intricate cuts like that....they work great as well, although I haven't used cutterbees, but have heard great things about them....I might just have to check them out. I already had the embroidery scissors and they've seemed to work ok.

cutterbees for sure. theya re super thing and very sharp. a trick is to try not to use the scissors. Move the paper instead...does that make sense?

These flowers were all handcut.
I had a piece of BG paper that I wasn't overly fond of and thought I'd just use the flowers. I used my scissors and my knife, which is probably one of my fav tools!!!!

I use my Fiskars micro-tip scissors first, and then if needed I reach for an x-acto knife.

I'm not a cutterbee girl, but I do use my fine tip scissors (from wm's sewing section) and an x-acto. I love to cut sections out of a paper that I'm not crazy about or use a paper I love and make it last for 2 pages!
