Fix material to wasteboard

Hi, I am making the test project in easel of the owl ring. What is a good way to fix something to wasteboard, so that if the outline is cut through the rest can be held in place to be routed out? For example when I cut the part of the ring to slide over the finger, it cuts the outline, then it pops loose instead of staying in place to have the center cut out.

Use the “TAB” function in Easel and put tabs on the part that a cut through

When I cut anything with holes, I always do them first, and then the outer cut. Also, use tabs as has been said previously.
