Friday Tip

Dear Constant Reader,

It’s Friday! I’m spending my day helping The American Burlesque Collection get ready for their reopening tomorrow. In honor of the temporary exhibit The Fantasy of the Fan Dancer, I’ll be teaching fan dance workshops in May!

Here’s your tip!

Store your X-Acto knife blade point down in the handle.

These little babies are so useful for all sorts of projects and it’s easy to add a sharp new blade. It’s also easy to lose the protective cap. If you store your blade like this, you are much less likely to stab or cut yourself. I learned this little trick from Nina Nightingale during an session of her Charm School, presented by Atlas Obscura.
