Figured Out Half Of It.
1. I can't cut straight with a ruler.
2. I have the technology – I might as well use it.
The simplest tutorial I found was on how to cut and tape a drawing to create a repeating pattern and guess what ... it works for Photoshop, too. Here's what I did.
Draw a design in the middle of your a piece of paper. Make sure nothing touches the edges.
Divide your design in half (I'll do it vertically first), switch the positions of each half with the other and tape them back together – Photoshop users can skip the tape part. ;-)
Divide your design in half the other direction (horizontally this time), switch the positions again and tape them back together – unless you're using Photoshop, you big cheater, and then you don't have to tape.
Add to the design in the open area, but again, do not let your new elements touch the edges of the paper.
