Making Iris Cards easier
Set up your cutting mat with a variety of small papers that you want to use. Measure the greatest length of your card aperture and decide how wide you want the strips to be. Then set up your page with lots of strips and send it to your cutter. The strips will be suited to your project and you won't need to cut down as many.
