It’s the last weekend before Science Fair (yay! It’s almost over!) and the projects for this “phase” are for Jason to write his speech and put together his backboard for the fair on Wednesday. After going back and forth about the speech, we moved on to the backboards. We printed everything out, I had my Olfa mat, ruler and cutter ready, and then I learned something.
I can not cut a straight line.
Sure, I can cut a straight line with my awesome and amazing editor scissors, but with the mat and the rotary cutter – forget it! Gah! I’ve done several practice sheets (after butchering the original printing of his Purpose and Hypothesis – thank goodness for computers!), and they all turn out the same – very crooked.
I guess I need to go back to school to learn to cut a straight line. Maybe Michaels has some crafty classes that can help me out in the future. For today, we’re going to end up getting my Mom to help – she’s the cutting pro!
