One of the things I love the most out of all the tools we have available to use at Stampin’ up!…are the scissors we carry. We have 3 different types of scissors to complete an array of chores.
The first pair of scissors I’ll be showing you today are the “Craft & Rubber Scissors”. What do I use these for? Something I always try to encourage my customers to do with a brand new stamp set, is to cut the rubber around all the edges of each individual stamp. This eliminates the possibility of any stray ink lines when stamping. I cut as close to the stamp image as I can removing all excess rubber. Here is the catalog description of these scissors:
