I, too, do not like the curled cut edge produced by an X-acto knife when using with a quilter's ruler to cut evenly all around a layer mounted on a piece of contrasting cardstock.

I much prefer using my Fiskars rotary hand cutter, with plain or deckle blade. To keep the ruler from slipping I have put on several Leaf-Its by Sailor, which I originally bought from Evolving Images to use with their templates.

Since they are actually traction finger dots used by hand quilters, they may be available wherever quilting supplies are sold.
