Third, cutting the tile.
Though this type of tile can easily be cut with everyday scissors, it’s best to use a utility knife and a straight edge guide. Set up your cutting mat and T-Square on the edge of a table or work bench, making sure the short edge of the square and the cutting mat are square with the edge of the table. Lifting up the long arm of the T, slide the tile underneath it while lining up the ink mark with the straight edge.
- While holding the T-square in place with one hand and using even pressure, carefully score along the ink line four or five times, cutting just a little in depth each time.
- Turn the tile over and bend at the scored line.
- Carefully cut along the fold line.
