How to restyle your scissors

I had the awesome idea the other day to recover my boring metal scissors with some cute scrapbooking paper from my stash, and I decided to do a little tutorial for you guys---
I really love how personalized you can make them with just a tiny bit of paper! These would make a great gift for a crafter. Send me a picture if you make these, I would really like to see your version!
xo, Katie

  1. Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave today [16 Apr 01:00am GMT]. Thanks, Maria

  2. I am going to be doing this for my scissors at work. I am a floral designer and in my shop we have 5 pair of scissors and each pair is for a different need. I am constantly replacing scissors that will no longer cut ribbon because it was used for other purposes, this is a great way to beautify and label. Thanks for the idea.

  3. WWWHHHHHAAAAT, this is totally one of those why-didn't-I-think-of-that-*facepalm* ideas. Seriously, WAY TO BE, these are so cute!!

  4. They look great, do you think they will keep though after you use them a lot?

  5. Awesome Tutorial! I think I'll do the same to my boring scissors..

  6. Love this idea to keep my scissors from being appropriated at work.

  7. What a fun idea! Being a Fisk-a-teer with quite a collection of scissors, I just might be giving this a try!

  8. Fabulous, thank you for sharing!

  9. Cool idea, maybe it will make it harder for me to lose my scissors if I tried this.

  10. How fun!! I'm gonna do that. Thanks!!!

  11. Awesome! Has anyone tried this with plain old modgepodge? Does it hold up as well?


I love your comments!
