    Ditto for me!

    I was going to say put a piece of painters tape and just cut along the edge.

    I use my rotary cutter with a used blade when I wrap presents. So much easier to cut wrapping paper with a rotary cutter and 24" ruler!

    I keep a used blade in the original Olfa snap box it came in, and wrote in sharpie "paper". I pull that blade out for just such a thing so I don't ruin a new blade or fret about it. One that lost its edge for fabric still has a lot of cutting power left!

    I do it often and so far have had no problems.

    I have before, but I always dance backwards. If you have a used blade that won't be damaged if there's an incident . . . go for it.

    Quick question

    Can you cut Velcro with a rotary cutter? When I try to cut one inch with my scissors it never comes out straight. I think if I used the rotary cutter I could get it nice and straight. But I'm worried it might hurt the blade. Has anyone done it before?

    Thanks!
