Ribbon scissors and giveaway!

I have been itching to show you this project that I made before Christmas for my friends at my crop that I go to in Eastbourne. Unfortunately I wasn't well enough to go along in December so I had to wait till last week to give them out, which in turn meant that I couldn't show and tell until after they had been received. This also ruined my plans to give a pair to one of my followers for Christmas, however everyone likes a belated crimbo present so I think we can still do a little giveaway! I'll give details at the end of the post.
I always keep a pair of SU snips to cut my ribbon with, to stop me using them for cutting other things and blunting them I have a little charm on the end as a reminder. So although these aren't SU scissors they are super sharp and have little charms on so my friends can save them for supper sharp ribbon snipping. I'm not sure if you can see very well in the picture but the charm is a little bar of chocolate, well what else would Mrs Wonka choose!
So if you would like to get your mitts on one of my pairs of ribbon scissors complete with wallet just leave me a comment and I will pick someone at random on Sunday.I will then contact you for your address and pop them in the post for you. Good luck! 


  1. Hope you had a lovely crop at the weekend. What a super idea for keeping them separate - a really sweet idea.

  2. Oh this is such a fab idea - I love it!
    I am always blunting my scissors and every time I but a new pair I always say that I woill keep them just for super sharp ribbon cutting - but then I always forget :o(
    The wee charm is just perfect as a reminder :o)
    enjoy the rest of the evening.
