Introduction

Fussy Cutting is a commonplace technique in the quilting world. The paper art industry has ventured into fabric so I think it is only right we borrow some great techniques from the fabric world. Fussy cutting being one that many paper artist seem particularly fond of using. With all the beautiful paper we have to choose from WHY NOT!
Fussy cutting is a great way to use the supplies you already have to create unique embellishements. You can single out a design on a pattern paper (or even use your packaging from other supplies), use fussy cutting in your clustering and layering, and you can use fussy cuts to create photo placement by simply cutting along a pattern line and tucking your photo into the slot.
