How to Turn Your Designs Into Paper Cuts and Crafts

I'm trying to recall when my curiosity for cutting ever started. I remember when I was 5, and I was using a super blunt pair of scissors to cut my bangs. My mother was really upset to find out what I did. Hahahahahaha. I still think it's funny to this day. I tried...
