    Score it, then break it.

    Pat it, and prick it, and mark it with "B"
    And put it in the oven for Baby and me!


    SORRY WRONG SONG!

    I don’t know how much help they would be. People who work there aren’t necessarily crafty. Guess you could try. I’m so far from a craft or office supply store it wouldn’t be convenient for me.

    I’ve only ever did the score & break with foam board. I have, however, always used a bread knife to cut regular styrofoam and floral foam.

    A metal ruler and exacto knife. Don’t cut all the way through on first pass
