Fake fur, the less annoying way

Gentle Reader, you are probably really busy gearing up for your Snowflakes In July ballet performance right about now, right?
So I thought you might enjoy this tip for cutting fake fur:
Draw your cutting line on the back of the fabric, and then For The Love Of All That Is Holy!- slice through the fabric backing Only using a razor blade.
Do not use scissors, do Not cut through the fur. All you need to do is cut through the fabric backing.
This will majorly reduce the amount of free-floating fur in your face, hair, lungs, clothing, and life in general.
You can buy razor blades at hardware stores.
I like to put masking tape on the blade before I throw it in the trash, just to make it safer for sanitation workers.
Ok? Ok!
