If you cut ANYTHING with a pair of scissors...especially things like letters and paper piecings then you must get a pair of Cutter Bees...EK Success, I think. I only wish I had known this months ago...all the hand cramps I could have spared. They are wonderful for cutting itty bitty stuff. Not the pair of scissors you want left out on the table though. They are SHARP!! They are cheap too (8.00 bucks)!! A must-have for every scrapbooker! I like them so much I bought two pair!!
