Are they held together with paper or with rubber? The paper is a Pain in the A** to use. The rubber...typically Dal Tile is FAR easier. With the paper...you gotta cut 'em quick and get them up or they fall off all over the place. I HATE doing paper!

I like to cut off the row that is being cut with a razor knife then cut the tiles seperate from the rest of the sheet. Doing this will keep all of the field tile in tact and you only have to worry about the cut tiles falling off thier backing. It makes for a much cleaner installation.
