I am asking because I think I want some more....I use just a pair of reg. lg scissors and a pair of school scissors that are both used just for scrapping.....but they just don't seem to be cutting it, lol, seriously!! I feel I can't cut smaller objects acuratley with either

I use fiskars 5" micro-tip soft grip scissors. They have skinny handles instead of rings to put your fingers in (so your fingers don't get sore)and the blades are really pointy and easy to get in small places.

I have had my fiskars scissors since 2002--work great for hand cutting. I also have honeybees, which I use when cutting sticky things. Highly recommend them both.

I have several pairs of the CM Congratulations scissors and I use the heck out of them. I also like Fiskars too and Colorbees.

I use the Tim Holtz Tonic Studios Scissors! They cut through almost anything and I don't have to keep switching scissors when I'm working with different materials.

CM scissors, two pairs, that I have had for years...still sharp and accurate. I will say I had no idea how many kinds of scissors were available until I read the responses to your question.

My scissors are nothing special, but they are ridiculously large. I've got two pair like this, no idea what brand. I also have a pair of small scissors that came with my cricut accessory pack for my small cutting needs.

Cutterbees, Honeybees (for sticky), and the ones that come in the Cricut tool set

Cutterbees! I love them- nonstick and they cut so easily. I used to have the 3 piece set by Provo craft (the one they have in Michael's, used to have purple handles) and I can't stand to use them.

I use scissors similar to these. The MM one looks a lot like the Husqvarna scissor that I have and use ALL the time. The EK one is great for very tiny detailing like you'd have with 3D cutting. It takes a lil practise for those who arent used to these kind of scissors but since I use tweezers like these at work, I find them handy

I just bought the TH pair. A girl at my LSS said she's even used them to cut the backs off buttons. She let me use hers before I bought them and they still did a great job.

For detailed cuts I use cutterbees. For everyday cutting I use fiskars. I have a pink pair for fabric, a green pair for paper, a purple pair for sticky stuff. I just bought a dozen fiskars pairs for my classroom too. I have pink, green, purple, and 3 pairs of leftys for my lefty kids.

I use a regular large pair of scissors occasionally, but I mostly use my Fiskars spring-loaded soft grip! Love it!
