I was wrong! I (meaning my daughter) lost my Cutter Bee scissors a couple of months ago and I decided I could live without them. I haven't had much time to scrap lately, so i thought my decision was a good one. Then tonight I had to cut out a dozen quarter page size outlines of Christopher Columbus' ship for a third grade project (my daughter's - not mine). Intricate waves at the bottom of the ships, furled sails and ship flags - beautiful representatives of the Santa Maria. And nearly impossible to cut out with my big clunky scissors or her little scissors. It took an hour and looks like I did them with a hacksaw! Finished the project, put her to bed and went right to scrapbook.com to order a new pair. Can't wait to get them and this time I will lock them up! Great product every crafter should have at their fingertips.
I am relatively new to scrapbooking. That being said, I have been using gigantic Fiskars scissors for all my cutting including small precise cutting. I was taking a class at a convention and the teacher said to me, "Oh, no, that will never work!" and asked the class if anyone had small scissors to let me borrow. Well a nice lady in the room let me use her Cutter Bee scissors and immediatley after the class I ran to AC Moore and bought a pair! I didn't realize what a difference they make. They are super sharp and super precise. I can do things with these scissors I thought I couldn't ever do. They make it all possible! Definetly a must-have in every scrapper's arsenal!

These are the only scissors I will use. I have a pair in every color that they offer. These scissors are super sharp. They cut through paper like butter. The tips are also very sharp, which makes it easy for precision cutting. Also, sometimes when I am too lazy to grab my paper piercer, I use the ends to make holes in my paper for brads. These scissors come with a cover for them, so they will not open while you are transporting them and also so that you don't hurt yourself, because like I said even the ends are really sharp. You won't be disappointed if you get a pair of these. They are really worth it!

Cutter Bees? I have two pairs of Cutter Bees. You know how it goes, if one is good two are better. My friend kept telling me I needed a pair of Cutter Bees. She told me at least once a week for about 4 months until...I broke down and bought a pair. Well, I love them. Yes, they are precise and stay sharp, but they also double as a paper piercer. Yipee! I have used them with some intricate clipart and they do an awesome job. For example, I was cutting out the wings of a hawk and I didn't want to 'foul' it up so to speak and the feathers were easy to snip and the precision result was superb!

I would simply be LOST without my Cutterbee scissors. I have used them on every layout I've ever made and they are the best scissors on the market, hands down. I have been scrapbooking for six years and have not had to sharpen these once.
These scissors are not only affordable, but they cut with such precision! The non-slip grip makes these scissors easy to handle, and the "sheath" keeps you protected when the scissors are not in use, and the precision tip makes it easy to cut carefully along small embellishments.
I would definitely recommend this item to any scrapbooker.

I got these on the advice of members of this very website and have been absolutely thrilled with them. They are one of my MUST HAVE tools now. They can indeed cut very detailed pieces. But most impressive to me is that when I cut an edge with these it doesn't come out looking wobbly like it always used to with other scissors I've tried. The edge comes out much more defined and finished looking. My work looks so much better for it. I was so impressed, I purchased one for my SIL, and convinced my MIL that she needed a pair too. They get used often too.

I can't scrap without these things! I use them all the time - from cutting out detailed paper accents, to trimming photos and cardstock. The sharp points are also great for poking holes for brads (but be careful, these suckers are sharp! I've drawn blood before - but it was my fault!) I would recommend these with great kudos, they are one of the tools I truly can't imagine not having. I wouldn't recommend using them to cut thick things like chipboard - I did that and bent one of the blades. BUT - I replaced them with a new pair!

I have tried several pairs of scissors, but when I received these as part of a kit I thought 'oh look another pair of scissors'. Then I used them. Out the door went all of my other scissors because these are the best I have ever seen. I didn't know scissors could cut so perfectly. Now I have these and the titanium (pink) ones!! They cut through the paper as if it was barely there. You will never regret picking these up, and never look back at any other kind again!

These scissors are awesome! I was getting by for the longest time with regular household scissors. I had a heck of a time trying to cut small things or detailed things. So, I finally had enough and went and bought these. What a difference! How did I ever get by? They are so sharp and easy to use. They cut details beautifully. I also like the blade sleeve. It's nice to be able to keep them covered up and not worry about injury-to myself or others!

Wow look at all the reviews on the Cutterbee scissors. They are, by far, the very best scissor to cut out small things like letters and numbers. They are very, very sharp and have a point that will cut into the tiniest space. I use them for all my intricate cutting. Just remember to keep the guard on them when not in use. They could be dangerous to a child or a pet (or spouse) :o). Everyone who works in paper crafts needs the Cutterbees Scissors.

Fabulous little scissors - these are SHARP & perfectly sized to cut the most detailed stuff. Cute & portable too. Easy & comfortable fit in my hands. As previous reviewers have stated, be careful - I too have cut myself when overzealously using this product. But I guess it's understandable - these little scissors pack such a big punch & making cutting things out so easy & fun that it's hard NOT to get carried away with cutting stuff!

I dont' think I could scrap without my cutterbees!! They are so sharp and cut so cleanly. It is really easy to cut off even the smallest amount of paper off the side of a photo or paper. The cushioned handle makes it very comfortable to use for hours. But you have to be careful because they are VERY sharp and I have cut myself quite a few times when not paying attention. But other than that, I would recommend these to everyone.

These scissors are definitely the best thing since sliced bread. I would not be able to live without them. They are small and sharp which really helps when cutting especially small things out. I love the protective case and now I do not have to worry about anyone getting cut with them. All of my friends have a pair and they just love them. This is truly a great product and worth the money. And plus they are inexpensive.

I love my cutterbee's. They are so amazingly sharp, so amazingly precise! The tip can really get into those hard to reach places and the handle is surprisingly comfortable. For years I used ergonomic scissors and thought for sure these would hurt my hand after using for a while. Boy was I in for a surprise. Now I use them daily. Great on ribbon especially, a sharp cut really helps keep it from fraying.

These scissors are one of the first items I purchased, over five years ago, when I began scrapping and I still use them to this day! I use them on every layout I create and I absolutely love them! They are perfect for the regular craft cutting but I especially love them because they are perfect for intricate cutting as well. These scissors are, by far, one the best scrapbooking tools I own!

Great scissors!!! They have wonderful precision, lightweight,easy to handle, easy to transport. Great to throw into a bag and take to a crop without taking up space.They also have the safety shield you you or your kids won't accidently get pocked by them if you don't seem them hiding under something! These are a quality pair for an affordable price. You won't be displeased!

How much do I love these scissors?! They are so light and quick... I feel confidant cutting even the most delicate pieces. I turn to my tonic when I have lots of long cuts in thick cardstock, but my dear little cutter bee is here for my teensy alphabets that seed a precise cut. This scissor will do that even better than a blade. Very nice!

I've even gone so far as to buy a second pair at the crop when I left mine behind. I can't work without these scissors - they are compact & lightweight, comfortable to use, and with the precision tips they're perfect for fine cutting work. If I could only have one tool for cutting it would be my Cutter Bee scissors!

I love these scissors. I have used no other since getting these. If these get buried I will hunt for however long it takes to find them..lol They are very sharp as well as the tips. I have used them for very detail cuts and also punching holes for brads and ribbon threading. They are a must have for sure!!

These are the best scissors I have ever used for paper crafts. Their sharp pointed tip makes it so easy to get into the tiny corners and bends that one will find in making paper crafts. I love them so much that I bought a second pair just to make sure that I would never be without a pair.
These are the best things I have ever purchased. I couldn't live without them. They are the best for cutting out tiny details or doing any cutting job.
I want a couple more pairs to stash around my scrapping room.
I would HIGHLY recommend buying these and ONLY these scissors.

I love these scissors, so great for small, tight spaces. My sister even tried them and she loved them too. I also love how it comes with a protective cover. I use these scissors everyday, I'm so glad that I bought them. The best scissors I ever had. Very comfortable also!

I use these all the time! As an avid scrapper, I can't imagine scrapping without these. They get into small spaces and enable me to cut out the smallest, detailed letters or images perfectly! I don't have an electronic cutting machine so I couldn't make my pages without these!

The cutter bee scissors are the absolutely best fine tip scissors on the market. I use them on every layout. They stay sharp, get right in the crevices of small items, and cut right to the very tip. The handle is also very comfortable when doing lots of cutting.

About 6 years ago, my friend Sara bought these scissors and raved about them. I was not so sure because I have always had a hard time finding scissors because I am left handed. But, I took a chance and bought these and could not have been happier about a scrap purchase.
These scissors are great. The holes are padded and ambidextrous which is really important when you live in a right-handed world. The blades are SHARP and the tip is really pointed. It also comes with a blade cover - which I recommend using if you don't want to poke yourself.
To date, this has been the best scrap purchase I have ever made. It's been over 6 years and I am still on my first pair - which have not ever needed to be sharpened. I now have a couple of pairs of these - the original pair for my scrap room, a second pair for cropping on the go and a pair for use elsewhere in the house. I could not recommend these more!!
I have got to tell you, my friend Betty bought these cutter bee scissors for me, and I thought they were just something else I didn't need! Well I use this pair of scissors before I grab any other scissors, they are very sharp, and smooth cutting. and very precise. I misplaced mine one day and started panicking, like I couldn't do another project without them, I place these cutter bee scissors as a high priority on my list of must haves!!!! Can't live without these, you will absolutely love this pair of scissors and I highly recommend
to anyone in need of new scissors!!! Worth every penny!
I wasn't sure if I would like using these scissors, or not, because they are so small and I was used to using bigger scissors. I finally decided to give them a try due to their rave reviews from so many other users, and I am so glad I did! They are so sharp and smooth to cut with. They get into the most tedious tight places to cut, and are amazing! I love that they come with their own protective cover to save little curious hands from getting cut. I can't say enough about how much I love these! I highly recommended them!!
I had just started scrapbooking and a friend of mine suggested these to me. I have never had a pair of scissors that were this precise and user friendly! They are great for up close and fine work and never seem to get dull. I had to replace mine but only because my dog got them and chewed up the handles. (No she didn't get hurt, she left the sharp end alone thank goodness!) I just got a replacement pair and I am glad to have them back. I suggest every new scrapper go out and get a pair!
This is one of those basic products that everyone should have in the scrapbook supplies! These scissors are super sharp, so they do an awesome job cutting. The ends are also sharp, so you can poke holes in your paper for brads. Although I wouldn't try to cut thicker items such as chipboard with them, they will work for all your papers and cardstock. They are light-weight and have a little case that the blades lock into, so they won't come loose in your toolbox or bag.
I've been scrapping for several years now. Up until last week, I'd just had the regular run of the mill scissors. My dog chewed up the handle on the last pair. I had heard good things about this little pair, and I am now wishing I bought these years ago. They cut through most anything with ease. I really like that they cut through thick ribbon, without fraying the edges. If you are a beginner or an old timer, who doesn't have these. I would highly recommend them.
I love my Cutter Bee Scissors! They are sharp and cut just about anything. They are great for cutting out the smallest of items and getting into the smallest corners. I lost mine a couple of years ago and bought a new pair because I couldn't scrap without them. A couple years later when going through one of the boxes I found my other pair. :) I like the cushioned handles and they don't make my fingers hurt like other scissors do.
I had a pair of these scissors for about 5 years and I just realized they went MIA. I will definitely be purchasing a new pair. The are sharp, good for cutting small details, and they don't seem to dull (and believe me, I cut things with them that I probablly should not have). But the best part is the cover for the tip. It is perfect for storing in the drawer or travel because you don't have to worry about nicking your hand.
I purchased these a few years ago and use them on just about EVERY paper project I work on. Recently my cat knocked over my tool bag... and these scissors magically disappered, I was soo disappointed I couldnt find anything that compared... they are sharp and great for fine detail clipping. I was estatic when they reappeared when I was doing major cleaning in my room and moved the large shelp I use to store my supplies.
These are great for precise cutting. When you need to get in those little spots that bigger scissors tear and rip. These work great. I also love that they have the cover for them, because they are very sharp. I take these where ever I am scrapping, cropping and whatnot. I loved them so much, my mother and me would fight over them. I soon bought her, her own pair. So we have two pairs in our household. Get them today.
While visiting a friend I asked if she had different scissors than I to cut some heavy bond paper. The scissors I had been using would not cut even and was actually tearing the paper. I tried the Cutter Bee Scissors and not only did it glide thru the paper without tearing it made the job that much easier. I decided right then and there I was going to get my own. Sharp and Sturdy would be an understatement.
I fell in love with these scissors at first site! When I purchased these scissors it cut like butter! I love it so much I got in the blue, green and the other yellow with the transparent cover that comes with it! My husband loves it too i would always find it in his craft table so i gave it to him! I really Love these scissors. You will definitely get your money's worth with these scissors!I must buy!
Just love these scissors. I thought I would never be so protective over anyhting like this but my kids tend to use them and not put them back where they get them from. But this is the best pair of scissors I have ever owned and will purchase another pair if these ever get to the point to be replace. They are sharp, end is very pointed, padded finger holes. Just over all a great pair of scissors.
My favourite pair of scissors (I have 4) is the teflon-coated cutter bee scissors. You can cut anything (even tape or adhesive) and the cut will be perfect. And I love that they don't get sticky and gummy from adhesive. The pointy tip is perfect to cut small and intricate pieces. Finally, the handle is very comfortable and the cap makes it safe when you bring it with you to a crop.
I LOVE my cutter B's. I have had 3 pair but never throw away the old ones. I just fold then into a new room of the house and so I have a pair in the wrapping paper storage bin, a pair in the bathroom and a pair in my sewing kit...oh yeah...and my newest ones are in my scrap closet! These are the best, sharpest scissors I have ever used. They make scrap booking a breeze. ;)
I received these as a Christmas present a couple years back and I love, love, LOVE them! They are so perfect for detail work like getting into those tight corners. And they are still as sharp as ever even though they've seen quite a bit of use these past few years. I definitely would recommend you buy these if you don't have any scissors with the tiny head yet.
These are the best pair of scissors I have purchased for scrapping. I use them for just about everything I cut! They're especially great for cutting small detailed items. My cutter bee's are the first item I take out of my drawer when I sit down to do some scrapping. In fact, I love them so much, that I've purchased a second pair to keep on hand.
I think I've had these scissors for 15 years now! (Is that possible?) I've never had a die cutting machine of any kind. If I make my own letters, I grab these scissors. If I cut a silhouette out of a picture, I use these scissors. They're sharp and accurate. The small size makes them easy to maneuver around tiny curves and angles.
These are probably the best pair of scissors I have ever owned! When I first started scrapbooking, I bought several different scissors in different sizes and was never completely satisfied. These are the only ones I will use now and I use them for everything whether I cut out something big, small or for precision cuts.
A must have!!!
I love-love-love these little scissors! They are very easy to manuever and make the smallest cuts with ease. They have a nice comfy grip and the adorable Bee colors make them easy to locate on your scrapping table.
Definitely a necessity for every person who enjoys paper crafting and the price makes them a great value.
I bought a pair of these when I first started scrapping over a year ago and at first wasn't sure if I really needed them. After using these for every scrapbook page and card I make, I'd definitely say they were worth every penny! Adhesives won't stick, the scissors stay sharp and cut perfectly every time!
These scissors are a MUST for any scrapper! They're sharp and precise. They're small for easy handling, but big enough to get the job done! They stay sharp for a LONG time - I've had mine for over a year and haven't had to sharpen them once! I can't imagine scrapbooking without them!
After a few people on the board raved about these scissors, I bought them! After using them just the first time I could tell it was money WELL spent! They are very sharp and a perfect size for small detail cutting work to larger jobs. Cuts through paper and acetate like buttah!
I am really crying right now because I have some how lost mine. If I don't find them soon, I will just have to go out and buy another pair. They are so shart and fit in your hand nicely. My hand does not feel tired after cutting a detailed project with these.
These scissors are not only an awesome product, but also very affordable! I own three pair...one for paper, chipboard, and fibers/ribbon. Even my children know how important these scissors are and that they are NOT to be used by any of them! lol
I read many many reviews on these little scissors. I wanted a pair that would allow me to cut detailed work. And wow, these do the job! They tip is fine and sharp and it cuts like butter! =) Love them! So glad I invested in this little guy.
These are the greatest. I thought I had a good pair of scissors until I went to a class and used the instructors Cutter Bee Scissors. Needless to say, that was my next purchase. I have them handy for all of my scrapbooking projects.
I have had my scissors for the past 2-3 years now and I can't scrap without them. They are such a life saver when I have to cut into impossible spots. I love how they are still sharp even after all the work I put them through.
I almost didnt buy these scissors but I ended up getting them and boy oh boy was I happy. They are so good at cutting the smallest little thing and so precise! I love them... any scrapbook tool kit needs these little scissors!
I never thought I would be all that impressed by a pair of scissors...I was wrong. These little things are great! The best detail scissors I have ever worked with. They are light weight, comfortable to use, and very sharp.
These are absouetly the best scissors ever. They are so easy to use for very small detailed piecings. I use mine everytime I scrap. I have two pairs, one for my scrap room and one for my sewing room. Can't live without it.
These scissors are so comfortable and easy to use! The blade is so sharp and slices through craft and scrap paper like butter. ;) I also love the safety and storage cover that goes over the sharp tip. Wonderful product!
A must in your tool kit! I've had these since I started scrapbooking and always use them. I've even had other friends use them and then go and buy their own pair. They're a bit pricey but well worth the investment!
Love these little scissors. They are comfortable in your hand and always do an excellent job. I borrowed a pair at a crop weekend years ago and loved them so much I had to go buy a pair. I have used them ever since!
These scissors are so precise and they never dull. I have had mine for about 5 or 6 years and the are still going strong. I do keep them in their case to protect the blade. Love them!
These scissors aren't bad for paper, but good luck cutting ribbon! Compared to the Tim Holtz scissors (non-stick, micro-serated, small blades but large universal handles), these are only mediocre.
