Begin by choosing your cardstock scraps and running through the crimper a couple times. You can crimp it in different directions if desired. The crimper helps to break down the fibers in the paper faster.
Using a pencil, smooth out the crimps holding the pencil on one side and smoothing with your thumb on the other side, repeating all around the cardstock until the paper starts to separate on the edges.
It will take a couple minutes to break down the fibers enough to begin to release.
You can carefully begin to separate the layers. If they don't release easily, do a little more work with the pencil.
