Default Better way to work with marabou?

There has got to be a better way to work with this marabou LOL.. OK I buy it in a string from Hobby Lobby and when I cut it it flys all over the place and I lose a bunch of my "fluff".. Is there another place to buy it and does it come in any other shapes or sizes.

Try to separate feathers as much as possible. And I always do it outside.

Yes, for the long strings, cut them outside! I used to do this, and it looked like a shocking pink bird got in a fight with a cat...and lost! I also remember seeing a post about wrapping tape around the place where you are going to cut, then cutting with the tape in place. I bet if you search, you can find more specifics.

I actually buy packs of "puffs" from PaperMart. They are precut, sometimes need a little work or more than one. To me, it is worth the added expense to prevent the mess!

that's why i don't like working with marabou. it is just so messy! i used it to make some party hats, and that was the last ttime i even touched the stuff. that was a few mons ago, and i still find little feathers sometimes.
