Quick Tip: Tearing Tool

This is a simple trick I learned from my mom – she would remove the cutting edge from an empty aluminum foil box and use it as a sharp edge to cut paper…

Just cut off the cutting edge – remove the entire side of the box.

Firmly press cutting edge down on paper and pull paper upwards – you'll get a clean tear every time.
