How To Cut Felt

  • While this is a craft for kids, cutting felt works best with sharp scissors. Possibly pre-cut the felt shapes or make sure the kid’s scissors you already own are not super dull.
  • For pre-cutting shamrocks consider using these tips on using freezer paper as a templet for perfect shaped shamrocks!
