How to Cut Paper without Scissors?

One of my daughter’s favorite activity is to cut paper and most of the time I give her the scissors.

To push pin the outline is difficult but with a little practice we can! And how much fun is it to pull away the surrounding paper and to see that what you have in your hands is the same shape as the drawing on the paper where you have to glue it on!
