Do you own a pair of Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Snips. They’re super for fine cutting — aka ‘fussy’ cutting. The thin blades are precision ground, cut all the way to the end of the tips and are sharp! Be careful. Trust me. They’re great for cutting ribbon in addition to fussy cutting.
The focus of today’s post is simple: the proper way to place the protective cap on the Paper Snips.
I would say that 100% of the time, after a class, the cap is replaced on the Snips that were used. And 95% of the time the cap is put on ‘upsidedown’.
Contrary to the urge to place the hole in the cover over the smaller rivet, it really goes over the larger rivet. Actually, when you look at the cover when placed over the smaller rivet, it doesn’t fit properly. Flip it over and it fits like a glove.
I used my paper snips to do all the fussy cutting on the various animals here. The ‘tunnel’ card, near the bottom of the post has a bunch of animals that have been cut out from the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper using my Paper Snips. They did a great job didn’t they? (The fox carrying the banner was stamped and water colored.)
And that’s the end of today’s lesson on how to properly replace the protective cap on your Paper Snips.
