Thru out my crafting journey, they say that when you cut w/paper, move the paper, not the scissors & that will prevent the fatigue that you experienced. It does work. You did an excellent job despite having a cramped hand. Especially w/cutting the thin parts -I would've cut right thru them.

do you know those spring loaded fiskars? That's my recommendation. Pointy, sharp, and takes very little effort to use.

once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right
