Cut along my perfect angle with rotary cutter.
Unfold, then fold again, but separate them a bit... run along the barrel of my woodburner...from tip to middle, then there isn't any little hairs....
open up quick...tada!
I've attached a picture to kinda help with what I'm talking about...
I have thougth about this, but hadn't done it yet. I freehand my spikes with my woodburner, but they aren't always even. This sounds stupid, but I hadn't thought to use the side of the woodburner instead of the tip.
PLEASE DO NOT SELL TO ME!!! NEED a 12 step program!! Anyone know of a good one?!!? Ribbons and Stuff Anonymous?!?!
