I saw a good tip once. Just put a lock thru the handles of your scissors and hide the key (NOT so good that YOU can't find it!). There will be no one able to use them without your permission.

I made card holders for my husband and myself out of the heavy duty foil. I "laminated" it between 2 pieces of fabric with fusible web and sewed it together into a pocket pouch. Works great.

Remember, if something is on sale at JoAnn's, you can't use a coupon. One of my pet peeves about them.
You can use the "percent off entire order" coupons, however.

That's just like an afghan I once crocheted for a co-worker. She wanted a copy of the one her grandmother made. I even used my own yarn and got all of $40, too.
