When I'm thinking of my favourite tools for papercrafts one of the first things on my list is my paper snips. They're a handy sharp pair of scissors that I keep just for my crafting. 'Family - this means you need to go find another pair!!' The precision-ground stainless steel tips cut cleanly all the way to the end of the blades and they come with a safety cover. At one of our Stampin' Up events our leaders' gift was this snazzy lanyard to clip on - I've clipped mine to my newest, sharpest pair and always use these ones for fussy cutting.

Have a great week and happy crafting if you're getting creative.
