Product Name: Fiskars Scissors Six-Pack Edgers Classic Set

Price: This set is available in the Scrapbook.com store for the price of $26.99.  It’s a value to purchase the set of six as I have seen them priced separately between $7.00 and $10.00 a pair. 

Product Description: The Fiskars Scissors Paper Edgers Classic six-pack set offers six different scissor options for fantastic trims and edges.  Designs include: Scallop, Pinking, Ripple, Imperial, Deckle, and Corkscrew.

In Use:

When I began scrapbooking back in the ‘90s, these Fiskars decorative-edged scissors were among the first tools I purchased.  The scissors are super easy to use and the different colored handles help me to identify them when I reach for them in my desktop caddy.  Fiskars makes a top-quality product and these scissors don’t disappoint. 

My personal favorite is the scallop-edge scissor.  I love the delicate and sweet touch it adds to the trim of a project. 

Tips & Techniques:

  • I like to use these scissors on tags and the edge of paper pockets on layouts or home décor projects. 
  • Any of the scissors work great for an added touch or layer on a card as well.

Projects & Examples:

The following examples use the decorative-edge scissors – some old, some new.  The common thread is the use of the decorative-edge scissors for an added design element.

Although some scrapbookers may classify the Fiskars Decorative Edge Scissor as an “old school” scrapbooking tool, it’s certainly a tool that can be used in new and trendy ways. I personally have a special place in my heart for these scissors; they’re a tool that when placed in my hands almost fifteen years ago fascinated me and drew me in to this wonderfully creative hobby.
