12 Days/Posts of Christmas - Day 11

I'm going to do these last two days early as Stampin' Up! recommends placing your orders by Dec 7 to receive them in time for Christmas!

Many crafters recommend having a good pair of scissors for cutting around images, however, I recommend having a good pair of scissors specifically for cutting ribbon. As someone who LOVES to use ribbon on cards and scrapbooks, I used SU's Craft & Paper Scissors once on ribbon and have been hooked since. I use these scissors just on ribbon and they stay sharp and make nice clean cuts every time without fraying the ends!

These are some of the more expensive scissors at $35.95 but I find them worth it, and would recommend them if you are a crafter who uses a lot of ribbon. Features of the SU Craft & Paper Scissors are:
  • 3 3/4" blade length to work for wide ribbons
  • stainless steel blades
  • ideal for cutting paper and ribbon
  • ergonomically designed (for right-handed individuals)
Note: These should not be used for cutting wire (including wired ribbons) or rubber.
