Personalize Your New Scissors
Years ago I had a very clever student in class who used an old (expired) credit card as a scissor fob. She cut it down so just her name and perhaps the expiration date showed. Very eye-catching.
(If you're reading this, and I've just shared your awesome idea, please raise your hand.)
I didn't have an old credit card to cut up so I cut up one of Steve's for the picture. (Hi, honey!) I used a hole punch---punch and twist--- and found the chain in the junk drawer. Hotel loyalty cards work. So will the cards AARP keeps sending in the mail. (Why do they DO that every three days?! I already know I'm over 50!) Go for the plastic cards that have the fancy raised lettering. Round the corners with a really strong pair of paper scissors and you're good to go.
(I've got another tip for old credit cards, hotel room keys, and loyalty cards in the next newsletter.)
