darn tumblr hid this message from me so I only saw it yesterday, sorry about that! I hope you still get to read it.
I feel your pain - once when I didn’t have my scalpels at hand I used nail scissors (and my gran can do some amazing things with them) and it was incredibly frustrating. I also tried a utility knife once (desperate times) which was terrible and made all my corners fuzzy. But usually what I use calls itself fancily ‘precision blade’ but really is just an X-acto knife like this:
My mum gave them to me and they’re originally German so I’m not sure where they’re from - super useful though, it’s a whole box with three pens and about 10 different blades that I switch around because I’m too cheap to buy new ones even though mine are super blunt by now. They’ll give you a nice grip thanks to the rough area, but that also means that after a while your fingers get sore here as well (way better than scissors though).
I hope that helps and have fun papercrafting!
Late contribution to the 50th: Gallifrey falls no more
Hi there! I’m really sorry it took me so long to reply, life is barking mad.
I don’t have patterns for most of the flakes unfortunately, but you can take the TARDIS from here and the angel looks something like this (apologies for crappiness, I haven’t used my tablet in months):
I hope that helps, if you need any more (or more specific), don’t hesitate to ask!
