Do you cut the paper to size before you dye it, or just dye first and cut later?

I too prefer to trim after dying the pages. Usually I get in the groove of tea/coffee dying and do a whole pile of paper at once. I also do tags and layer doilies and metal pieces on the paper before baking to get a ghosting effect-so fun! My kids will walk in the house and ask what I'm cooking, when I say "paper!" it cracks them up!

I prefer to trim my paper after it's dyed. This way I can cut off any torn edges that can occur during the dipping and baking process. But sometimes I want the paper as grungy as possible so I trim first and keep the random tears. It also makes the paper more manageable for baking if you trim it first. So really it's all up to you.
