You know you’re a true crafter when you feel the need to dress up even the most mundane of objects.  Life is just too short to snip things with boring scissors, right?  These pretty scissors started out plain, but Char from Crap I’ve Made added some patterned paper to the blades to give them a custom look.  She used the idea to make teacher appreciation gifts, but they would be appropriate to gift for many different occasions – or make a pair and keep them for yourself!  [how to make decorated scissors]
