Go to Kinko’s.  They charge like $2 per cut.  They use a laser. It’s perfectly straight and you keep your sanity.

I had that same problem making tags.  I have given up trying to get my paper cutter to cut straight lines on multiple layers of paper.  If you have your heart set on using your own paper I would download Avery’s template program

http://www.avery.com/avery/en_us/Templates-%26-Software/Templates

It will not give you the lines to cut on but you will be able to find your margin borders, trim those off and then start cutting into 1.75" squares.  If they don’t have a template for that size you could make a table in word at mayber 2" then cut off the lines to have just your image.  

 

The easiest option I have found are pre-cut tags.  If your heart is not set on the paper you already have.  Here is the general webpage:  http://www.labelsbythesheet.com/

Here they have your size.  I don’t know if the tag hanging circle is preforated on there or not, you’ll want ot check.  http://www.labelsbythesheet.com/items/hang-tags/square~rectangle-hang-tags/1-75-x-1-75-square-hang-tag-sheet-die-cut-white-cardstock-br-usually-ships-same-day-ht4-5sq-detail.htm

These are stickers instead of cardstock, but they come in 2 x 2: http://www.labelsbythesheet.com/items/standard-white-labels/standard-white-rectangle-labels/2-x-2-square-white-label-sheetbrusually-ships-same-day-w4-5r-detail.htm

You could get a square punch from Michaels or somewhere similar.  If you feed the paper into the punch with the punch upside down, you’d be able to see exactly where the punch will cut.  They aren’t cheap, but if you have a 40% off coupon, it would be <$10.
