Tissue Paper Issues

Each Sandbox Threads shirt is individually packaged as shown in the picture above. Within the package, the shirt is carefully wrapped in tissue paper. We think it's a nice touch, but therein lies the problem. I cannot properly cut the tissue paper, and if you have purchased a shirt from Sandbox Threads, you may have noticed the jagged tissue paper.

First, I need to explain that I'm left-handed and I never really learned how to use scissors very well (I blame it on my teachers, but that's a story for a different time). This lefty with right-handed scissors is a disaster. Each time I go to cut the tissue paper, I mangle it. Regardless of how hard I try to be careful, I tear, rip, and cut as crooked is as crooked does. It is just not possible for me the cut a straight line.

I can start a business from scratch, but I cannot cut tissue paper. Go figure.

I recommend a paper cutter - you know, like the ones at schools? Problem solved (they should pay me for my brilliance, don't you think?)!!

How about an exacto knife and a cutting board? It's cheaper than a paper cutter, and you can use it with either hand!
