Scissors are hand-operated shearing tools. A pair of scissors consists of a pair of metal blades pivoted so that the sharpened edges slide against each other when the handles (bows) opposite to the pivot are closed. Scissors are used for cutting various thin materials. For thicker more difficult materials, consider using Tinsnips.

Approved Materials

  • Paper
  • Fabric
  • Thin materials that will not harm the blades.
