New to illustrator here!
Im creating a simple instructions sheet for decal packaging. Im trying to get them to align properly with cut marks as they are being cut by hand. Whats the proper way to make a layout/template like this?

As the artwork exists, if one were to actually cut along your cut marks, you would essentially be also trimming off bits of the content, or trimming very, very close to the content....
You want to leave a bit of margin between the trim marks and the actual content....

Content should be within the "safety" area. And cut marks should be aligned with the trim size.
