Having the right scissors to use for a project can make a big difference in both the outcome of your project, as well as how your hands may feel after using them for a while!
If you are like many of us in the creative realm, you have probably been using scissors forever. You may have even had one or two pairs of scissors that you enjoy using. You may also have come across some that you wonder why you have even kept them around, because they aren’t the best.
Over the past few years, I have come to the conclusion that I like to have a pair of scissors in almost any room I am in at our house. (My husband has a pair of reading glasses in every room, and I have scissors!) Having them near has saved me a lot of time getting up and going on a search to find a pair. Who knows, I may even forget what I wanted them for if I don’t get them quickly! You probably wonder if I have found any that are better than others. Yes I have!
Three great pairs of scissors
- The Tim Holtz Tonic Studios 9.5″ Serrated Shears are a fabulous large pair of scissors! The blades are long enough that you can cut a nice straight length with no trouble. Trimming photos, cutting those cut-apart sheets of scrapbook paper, and numerous other tasks are a breeze with these. They also feel good in your hand, being comfortable to hold and not tiresome to use. You can tell a lot of thought and work went into designing them! These feel like ‘the right scissors.’
- The Tim Holtz Tonic Studio 7″ Serrated Scissors is a perfect pair for odd jobs like cutting rubber stamps, snipping a bit of jewelry wire, or snipping the back shank off a button to use it flat! Again, these scissors feel good while using them. The handles don’t feel awkward or as if they were made for someone else. They make a great all purpose craft scissor.
- And last but not least, the EK Success Cutter Bee Precision Cutters is a wonderful pair of small scissors. I have had a pair for years. They are perfect for fussy cutting and don’t tire your hands. They are very sharp — so be careful!
Do you have the right scissors? If you enjoy using your scissors, they are most likely the right scissors. Anyway, they are right for you! Please, tell us about them!
