Every scrapper must have a sharp pair of scissors in their scrapbooking supplies. There are many different brands of scissors made especially for scrapbooking. EK Success produces a pair of scissors called “Cutter Bees”- these scissors are extremely sharp and easy to use. They are great for cutting small projects, too.
Once you find the scissors that will satisfy your scrapping needs, you should maintain them by keeping them sharp, free of residue and in good working condition.
You can sharpen your scissors by cutting a piece of tin foil several times. Then, clean your scissors with alcohol; this will also remove any sticky residue that might be stick to your shears. Alcohol pads are a handy item to include in your scrapbooking bag. You can also try using adhesive remover to remove sticky residue left by adhesives.
Keeping your scissors in working order will help you create embellishments for your scrapbook pages in no time. Always keep your scissors out of reach so young children do not get injured.
