    are you going to use them as weights instead of pins when cutting?

    Is it one of those glass inserts that you put in vases to help keep stems erect and separated? Inserted into container to help keep thing that are long and thin easy to get in and out of the container. Now I need one -- where did you find it?

    Sheltie'smama, it is indeed a flower frog for keeping your flower stems upright. I found it in the second hand store but it is going to be my .........scissor frog.Name:  image.jpeg

    I have several glass frogs, but will keep mine for my crystal vases because I love fresh cut flowers in the house..

    You could also put skinny wood dowels in each to store bobbins or spools on.

    I don't remember where I saw that idea before, but I've been using it for awhile. I just happened to have a cute can that fit mine.

    I've been using one as a pen & tool holder on my desk, it works great. One caution - before dropping your scissors into it, check how far the tips extend out the bottom. Small tipped pointy scissors might hit the table and damage either the tips or table. I simply taped cardboard on the bottom of my frog.

    That's a good suggestion, Just Gail. My frog came inside a bowl, so it's all good. I am careful as I place different sewing tools in it, because it's all glass.

    My concern with the way you have your scissors in there is the tips. We all know that scissors are not inexpensive.
