    Cut along the line of the dome using a utility knife or Xacto knife. Carefully cut through the cover and all of the pages multiple times until you are through the bottom cover.

    • You may want to place the sketchbook on some scrap wood or cardboard before starting to cut.
    • Be careful when cutting. Take your time and make sure that you cut away from the hand that holds the sketchbook. Never cut towards your hand as the blade may slip.
    • Use scissors if you like.
