It was a swap I really wanted to see. I tied both the Froggie and added a 
Spring Peeper with each Froggie.
Should of been some interesting patterns in that swap.

Ian,
I have not stacked foam so I don't know how well it would work. I have cut foam 
sheets from 1/16 to 1/2" and I really have done well with it.
On my Froggies, I slice off a length of 1/8" foam 1/8" wide for the smaller 
frogs and 3/16" wide for the larger frogs. I get real clean cuts with a sharp 
single edge razor blade.
Do you remember anything about the Frog swap several years ago. Never heard any 
more. I forget the persons name now but he was either from England or Ireland. 
Never got a thing back
Tony

Thanks Tony thats what I had been using for my sheets, but on the stacked 
bodies, I wasnt having much luck with my scissors. I also suspect I need to 
look at a better glue as the adhesive I am using doesnt tend to hold well when 
I cut them..

I have found a sharp razor blade and thin metal ruler or the roller type 
cutters the dressmakers use to get the cleanest straight edge cuts.

I have tired some smaller dress making scissors, craft knife but they were not 
giving me a clean cut..
 
Perhaps I should invest in some kitchen scissors..
 
Are these the sort once can cut up a chicken with ?

Teresa's kitchen scissors... to get the pieces longer than fly-tying scissors 
can do in one cut. I have tried to cut with both scalpel and razor blade, but 
they often manage to compress the foam making the side angled. I realize that 
scissors must compress too, but somehow they have still given me the best 
results.

Going to Finland on Friday for Tampere FlyFair 2009 this weekend and I guessed 
I had to add an international hopper to my "wacky hopper stand". Finnish guys 
can be rather rough and coming there with a Swedish hopper and a Norwegian 
hopper but not a Finnish hopper, might put them off... so if I don't want to 
return home having a tan in the same colors as our own flag (blue and yellow), 
I thought I'd better have a new one with me this time. LOL
