    What do you mean by "with scissors"? You can make cut lines with any tool that can make lines (like the pen tool, for example).

    Draw a dotted line, use the line tool and place a line, use the stroke panel to select a dot stroke and weight.

     

    Draw a text frame, then go to your wingdings font, and open up the glyphs panel (Type>Glyphs) and look for the Scissors symbol in the glyph.

    Are people that stupid that a dotted line and a form or directions aren’t enough information and they need a picture of scissors to know to cut out a coupon? Those people probably can’t read anyway. Still, you can draw a pair of scissors, search Google for them, or use any of the one built into WIngdings or Zapf Dingbats.

    Why did you decide to go without the scissors? It's just a font you have to insert.

    You should communicate this with the printer - has they might construe that the dotted lines means you want it perforated, which could add extra cost.
