Teacher Gifts: Scissors

I found this great idea to alter scissors for Teacher Gifts on Erica's blog, and when my sister asked me for some end of year teacher gifts I thought these would be great!

I made the above style for the female teachers and the one below for the male teacher!

I bought the scissors at a local store, and used Crystal Effects to apply the paper and the top gloss layer as well.  I added the charms to make them just a little more fun!  Then came the packaging....I saw another site that also made the scissors and put them in pastry bags.  The only pastry bags I could find had a big purple W for Wilton on the side so that wouldn't work!  So out came the pennant die!

Ribbon, a tag and done!  I know my sister will be hand delivering these to school so no worries about the scissors and potential  issues!  I hope they hold up;  I made a prototype set for myself last week and so good!

    Love your teacher appreciation gifts, great idea especially the cone die holder!

  3. OMG, Lauri!! These are the cutest EVER! Decorating scissors? I don't think even Martha Stewart has thought of that one, lol! And what a great use for the pennant die! FAB!


Thank you SO much for taking a few minutes to leave me a note!
