Cricut borders and decorative scissors




I love the look of decorative scissors but I can never use them right. I guess I can't cut a straight line. I was in Joanns the other day and saw a package of precut borders, and thought...I can do that! I started with some that match scissors I like (using GEORGE cartridge), then my new Home Accents cartridge came and filled in the rest of the page! I've put each one at a different "inch" so that you can just lay down a one by 12 inch strip of the paper you wish to cut. Some of them go over the edge of the cut zone, I wanted to make them as long as possible so that I can use them whole for scrapbook pages or cut them down for cards. Pretty cool huh? My file is below. I also have 2 cards below that have borders on them from this file (next posts down)
