Instructions

Step 1: Mark the foam

To get a square cut, mark the foam on both sides.


Step 2: Cut Foam

Cut about halfway through the foam, then flip it over and finish cutting all the way through.


Tips

You can also cut on curves. Foam is often covered in padding, so don’t worry too much if the cut looks a little messy.

You can use scissors to trim the foam or if you want to create a rounded edge.
