Sharpening scissors at home

It’s Monday.

In Canada it’s a Holiday (Thanksgiving) so I’m not going to hit you with any elaborate recipes, cleaning or DIY’s today.
Just sit and digest your turkey.

BUT, if you do want a little something to do while you’re sitting – you could always sharpen your scissors….

All you need is a piece of sandpaper;

I use 220 grit because I was worried that a rougher paper might actually damage the blades.  Anything finer felt too smooth to the hand, so I wasn’t sure they would be effective enough.

220 seems to work perfectly.


In fact, I decided to sharpen my paper cutter as well;

Just slice away at the sandpaper with your cutter.  Each slice should sharpen it a little bit more.
Note:  if you have a sliding slicer – I don’t think this will work.  Attempt at your own risk.

I bought my cutter/trimmer through Stampin’ Up, but I couldn’t find it online to refer you to…

Instead I found links to a Martha Stewart version – and I believe her product line is of decent quality?  (and considerably less than I paid for my cutter)

 


Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Go digest now. lol






Have a great one!
