    So I started on my 4th of July project and hit one slight snag, how do you cut the plastic? I want straight lines and want to make sure they come out clean. So what do you guys use?

    Personally, a little bit of everything, really. Boxcutters work well if you're just looking to score a long line of plastic. I also use a cheap-o fold-out knife I got a Wal-Mart and my pocketknife. Some of the more professional folks use a Dremel with a cutting blade attached to it, but I'm cheap and lazy.
