Punch Scissors

These little scissors are just the cutest thing!!

I can see these on Christmas packages to fellow scrapbookers, paper crafters, or quilters...

Here is the tutorial to make these little beauties...

Punches you will need are:
Word Window
1 inch Circle Punch
3/4 inch Circle Punch
1/16 inch hand-held punch

Other supplies needed:
(Real) Scissors
Tombo Multi-purpose glue

Basic Black
Brushed Silver

Step 1: Punch two 3/4 inch Circle Punches in Basic Black

Step 2: Using the 1 inch punch, center it over the original 3/4 inch punch

Use just the black rings

Step 3: Punch 2 strips of Basic Black using the Word Window Punch

Step 4: Punch 2 strips of Brushed Silver using the Word Window Punch

This is what you should have punched out.

Step 5: Using Tombo Multi-purpose glue, apply a small amount to the end of the Brushed Silver punchout to adhere the black strip. Make sure they are nice and straight, AND the same size!

Step 6: Snip off 1/2 inch from the two black strips

Step 7: Apply a small amount of Tombo Multi-purpose glue to the black ends of the strips

Double check to make sure they are the same size.

Step 8: Punch holes in the middle of the strips, using the 1/16 inch hand held punch

They should look like this...

Step 9: Assemble both side together using a brad

Taaadaaaa!! CUTE as a BUTTON!!
