5 Ways to Use Fringe Scissors

Welcome to another edition of “5 Ways on Fridays” where you will learn unique and different ways to use a Stampin’ Up! product!

Today we are talking about Fringe Scissors 

Certain projects are easier when you have the right tools and this is one of those tools: Every time you squeeze the handles of your fringe scissors together, you are cutting not once, not twice, but FIVE TIMES! Talk about conserving energy 🙂

“What can I do with them besides making grass?” you may be asking yourself. You’ve come to the right place!

1. Fringe scissors make Ombre Fringe cards and tags in a jiffy! For this tag, I used Soft Sky, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Island Indigo card stock, along with the new Tag Topper punch:

While you are “fringing”, check out this adorable Fringe Chandelier made by Lauren Elise for the Knotty Bride:

2. Create a crepe paper garland! This tutorial from Yesterday on Tuesday shows a few different styles and hello! This is super fast with your fringe scissors:

3.  Flowers or “pom poms” are adorable accents to any project.

Lisa Brown from inkandinspirations shows you how fun and easy these are to make using Stampin’ Up! Crepe Filter Paper:

Thanks Lisa!

4. If you cut across your fringe the opposite way, you end up with CONFETTI!

At Stampin’ Up! Leadership last month, Shelli demonstrated how to create a shaker card using the confetti made with fringe scissors: Cut the corner of a clear envelope to the size you need (in this case, just a smidge taller than the photo frame die cut). Stamp image on top of clear envelope with Stazon, then seal the confetti in with a thin strip of sticky strip. Place behind the die cut and voila! Shake away!
5. A strip of fringe from Designer Series Paper or crepe paper is easy to adhere around a curved object like a basket or hat brim:

For these medallions, I just punched two circles and cut in from the edge. I used two because when you cut into the circle, some of the pieces fall off and it’s not perfectly round, so layering them gives the illusion they are still circles 🙂

At just $9.95, these scissors are an awesome addition to your crafting toolbox! Order your Fringe Scissors in my Stampin’ Up! store today and start living on the edge 🙂

Caught in the Vortex

We’ve been hearing about much of the U.S. being caught in the Polar Vortex and while Utah isn’t (currently) in the clutches of the freezing temperatures (for us, that was early December) I have been trapped in a crazy holiday/wedding vortex! All of our children were here for Christmas and I had a limited time with my eldest daughter to plan a wedding (which will actually take place in May) so forgive my month-long disappearance.

If you know our family, we celebrate the holidays with a vacation or some family event to make a memory rather than giving our children gifts (with the exception of a photo album I create with My Digital Studio showcasing our family events from the year before). This year we took a one day “Adventure” which included Indoor Skydiving and Snorkeling at the Heber City Homestead Crater. Here’s my first attempt at Skydiving…and for the record, it was awesome, but I’m sticking with the indoor version!

In SU! news: The Occasions Catalog is here and there are some wonderful products to celebrate every occasion and Sale-a-Bration begins on January 28th and my calendar is filling quickly, so call to schedule your party ASAP!
