Fringe Scissors: Your Newest Crafting BFF

{personal photo}

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend and are ready and refreshed to take on the week. I sure am!

Some of you may have seen me gushing over my latest crafting obsession on Facebook, but I thought these fringe scissors really deserved more of an introduction than that! Created by the crafting geniuses over at Martha Stewart, these little time savers cost between $10-14 (depending on where you purchase them - I got mine at Paper Source but found them online as well) and are super easy and versatile to bring just that little bit of texture to your projects.

I used them recently for a fun little DIY garland I was working on (more to come soon, all pictures taken with my camera)…

…and I also used these to create some lovely dessert table display signs for Mark & Sarah’s Maine wedding last month (tons more details to come from that, too!)

Basically, these scissors have 10 blades vs. 2, so they make your fringe-ing go that much faster! Imagine creating your pinatas, signage, streamers and more, in a fraction of the time, and with consistent/even space between each cut - consider me hooked! What do you think? Anyone use them lately for something fun? Fill a sister in!

    I am IN LOVE with my fringe scissors! They are so fun. I’ve mostly used them to make cards, but hope to make party/wedding decor, and more, in the future!! Way to go, Martha. Nailed it again :)

    I love fringe scissors! Although I feel like I’ve seen old/antique ones, so I think Martha is just bringing them back, not inventing them. :)

    Man, those things are crazy! I haven’t had too much crafting experience yet (more design and educational stuff) but I’m looking to get into it for Christmas gifting this year. Good to know these exist! Thanks for the post!
