embellished scissors

I got this idea from the always talented Char at Crap I've Made. I think embellished scissors make a perfect teacher appreciation gift. Practical + useful, original and inexpensive all in one cute little package!

The scissors are very simple to make. Cut out and glue paper to the outside of the blades. Sand the edges to get excess paper off. Apply Dimensional Magic, let dry. Easy!

I had never heard of Mod Podge Dimensional Magic before but I love the stuff now! It has a really nice thick, super glossy finish. It was really easy to use too.

Unlike Char, I don't have a Silhouette and my printer recently kicked the bucket. I had to go with the super low tech scissors and pen to make the tags. Not the cutest but it works.

I had Sutton write her name on the tags. I love her preschool handwriting. Especially the backwards S. I tried to be a good parent and show her (again) which way the S should face but secretly, I think the reversal is sweet!

This is such a fabulous idea, it's been on my list too.

I made some too--easiest project ever, don't you think? ;) I love the papers you used and Sutton's signature is priceless!

Oh, thank goodness! I have been looking for an inexpensive but unique teacher gift. Already bought the scissors and paper, now I just need the nifty dimensional magic. Wish me luck!
