Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design

Bite and snap a sturdy twig

This is an easy way to cut twigs that is just too thick or hard to cut with your shears or scissors.

Let the scissors bite into the twig.

Let the scissors bite into the twig.

Make small but firm pinch cuts all the way around the twig.

Scribe and break the twig.

This creates a scribe line

The twig will now easily snap in two.

The twig will now easily snap in two right on the scribe line.

Break the sturdy twig on the scribed line.

Neat and without having to saw.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
