Quick Tip Tuesday: Using New Mats
Welcome to Quick Tip Tuesday!A couple of weeks ago, the topic was all about mat use and extending the use of mats.However, there always comes a time when mats really do need to be replaced.I have found it a good idea, though, to keep an older mat on hand before it’s really done for.The reason?New mats can be quite sticky and work best with heavier paper or cardstock.If you have just replaced your mat and are hoping to cut some thinner patterned paper, you might find that the paper doesn’t lift off the mat and could even rip in the process.By saving an older mat, you can “work in” your new mat before trying to cut thinner sheets of paper.If all you have is a brand new mat though, you can gently rub an old t-shirt over the mat to help it lose some of its stickiness.
