Will definitely look into the wallpaper scissors. Thanks for the tip!
thinks for the info...I am always looking for a good pair of long lasting scissors.
I thought you were supposed to cut wallpaper with a paring knife? Stick the putty knife into the fold at the ceiling, and then cut with a paring knife...I guess I've been doing it the wrong way, LOL. I tried regular cheap scissors on wallpaper, didn't work. I'll have to get a pair of these.
Another inexpensive trick for those that are living with significant others and children. I went to the dollar store and bought a BUNCH of scissors. Look like my sewing scissors but are $1. I put them EVERYwhere in the house. In the kitchen, in the desk, by the computer. I even put a nail in the kitchen wall and hung a pair of kitchen scissors on it. You use it and then hang it back on the nail. It sure did help. I did this after hiding my good sewing scissors and then couldn't find where I hid them. hahaha. They did show up months later after buying more scissors. lol
I recently bought a tool box and added a Master Lock with key. This was after DD used scissors to cut photographs. Talk about dull-fabric just slides to the side.
I went onto eBay and replaced the scissors that were ruined. I love my little tool box, but since I bought it I see Sears has pink toolboxes. That may be on my Christmas list.
Thanks for the tip. I guarded my scissors and yet my husband used my best shears to cut insulation- fiberglass no less. He learned his lesson though when he had to replace my shears and set him back $35 in 70s $$. No longer married LOL!!! Now when I sew I know my scissors will be where I put them and in the condition I left them. Never heard of wallpaper scissors before your tip. I always learn stuff on this board. It's the best.
me too :thumbup::pscissor guard. let them buy you new fabric scissors and they usually ask first (not really)just have an abundance of dollar store scissors on the magnetic strip
