Cutter Bee Scissors
When asking my Mom if I could use her scissors the answer was always “Not My Good Ones”. At the time I did not understand, to me scissor were scissors did it really matter what you were cutting?As it turns out it does matter.Today I have several different types of scissors and yes they are used to cut different things. And just as my Mom did, when someone asked if they can use my scissors I answer “Not My Good Ones”.
Cutter Bee Scissors are very sharp and a fundamental item in my Scrapbook tool kit.They are prefect for cutting small intricate items.The comfort grip and safety cover are another significant selling point.Come in several colors and cost around $10.For anyone just starting to collect Scrapbook tools I would highly recommend investing in a pair of Cutter Bee Scissors.

Now those who know me well will tell you that spending a lot of time on my hair is just not my thing.So you may ask: What is she doing with a Curling/Flat Iron?Every now and then I think to myself “Self you should do something different with your hair”. By now I should know better and just stop myself when these thought enter my mind. They never amount to much.In this case my new Curling/Flat Iron did not last long in the bathroom so it moved to my craft room.
It all started years ago when my Mom was unpacking the Christmas decorations and the fancy bows she used to decorate were “flattened”.Not the look she was going for. As was expected, my Mom came up with a bright idea! Use a curling iron to fluff the bows back into their original shape. It worked like a charm.
To be GreenI save ribbon that comes with different packaging. Fancy dips and store packaging, presents, just to name a few.The only problem when you untie them they are so wrinkled….like the linen skirt that was so pretty when you put it on fresh from the dry cleaner but when you get out the car to go into the office…. You know the rest.That is where the Curling/Flat Iron comes handy.Just plug it in, let it heat up and run the ribbon through the barrel.Below is a photo of two different ribbons – the blue was run through the curling iron and the green was run through the flat iron to show that each works the same.
**WARNING** The Curling/Flat Iron is HOT!!!!!!!!! Watch you finger tips.
I have been searching for a China Cabinet that jumps out at me. Since that has not occurred hat boxes are used to store my dishes.This worked well when I only had two boxes but now that I have four it was hard to remember what was in each box.While perusing my favorite blog BNOTP I saw she had made cute tags for her office baskets.Using that as inspiration I made a tag for each hat box.Now I can tell at a glance where the dishes are stored.
Removed the pink ribbon from the chip board tags. (pink did not go with my décor)
Cut out the letters using Wild Card and white vinyl.
