Scissors


Fiskars 8 Inch Softgrip Scissors Straight, Stainless Steel



Fiskars make great scissors and I use several pairs from their range for different purposes.

The soft grip makes cutting comfortable, even if there is lots to do.

These are great general purpose scissors.

Thet have a long blade which you may find awkward when cutting out detailed shapes. The smaller ones below may be preferable for fiddly shapes.


Tim Holtz 817 Kushgrip Non Stick Micro Serrated Snips, 7"



These Tim Holtz small bladed scissors are great for detailed cutting.

The blades are really sharp and strong and will cut through any card with ease. 

These scissors are small but they are not suitable for children, they are very sharp with a pointed tip.

They have a non-stick coating so you can cut through tape without leaving sticking stuff on your scissors. .

Large kushgrip handles for comfort of use.

Also comes with a protective cap for safe storage.


Fiskars Pre-School Training Scissors, Color Received May Vary



These Fiskars pre-school training scissors are great for teaching kids how to cut.

They have a lever that opens the scissors automatically so the child can learn the open-close technique of using scissors, once mastered the lever can be flipped up for regular cutting.

Blunt tips and designed to cut only paper for safe learning.

You can't choose your colors but little ones won't really care about the color while they are learning to cut like the big kids.


Knives


Stanley 10-099 6-Inch Classic 99 Retractable Utility Knife



This Stanley box cutter is a great general purpose knife. I have used one of these for years with no problems.

The replacement blades are easy to find and cheap to buy and come in different types for a variety of uses.

The knife itself will hold up to 5 blades inside it so you have spares on hand.

The blade can be retracted to different settings and completely retractrable for safe storage.

You do need a screwdriver to change the blades but a general purpose one does the job.

They can be used for lots of other crafts and household jobs too.


Darice Retractable Razor Knife Set, Assorted Color



This set of 3 box cutters are also a great choice.

I use these when I need more control over the knife. 

The casing is smaller and more comfortable to hold for long periods than the metal body of the Stanley box cutter above.

The plastic casing isn't as strong as the metal casing of the Stanley knife and may crack with heavy use.

The blades come in a long strip which can be snapped off as the blade dulls. Replacements blades are easy to find and cheap to buy.

Great for most paper crafts though not recommended for heavy duty use.


X-ACTO #2 Knife With Safety Cap



For even more control over your knife use this X-acto knife.

It's almost like using a pen with a blade instead of a nib.

The blade is very sharp and cuts through paper and card easily.

The #2 blade is slightly thicker than the #1 so won't snap so easily.

Replacement blades are easy to find and cheap to buy.

Comes with lid with little wings to stop it rolling off the table and for safe storage.


X-ACTO Compression Basic Knife Set



If you like the X-acto knife above then this set will be perfect for many of your crafty needs.

Comes with 3 different knives and a variety of blades.

The blades are very sharp and will cut through paper and card easily.

Replacement blades are easy to find and cheap to buy.

Comes in a soft nylon case so would make an ideal gift for any crafter that uses precision blades.

The only problem I've had with these knives is that the handles are completely round so they will easily roll off the table. There is no lid for the knives with this set as the single knife above. Not good if you have small children around. Either keep the case handy and put them away after use or keep a small tray on the table to stop them rolling off.


Glue and Tape


Elmer's Craft Bond Tacky Glue, 4-Ounce, Clear



Elmers is a well known for it's great adhesives range.

This glue comes in an easy to use bottle and dries clear.
