These are pot holder scissor holders.
Thanks to my cousin Darlene for this idea. I made them for many friends, the mail lady, the Avon lady, etc. I've also made these small sacks for kids scissors and for my desk.

I have been making these for a long time. It is amazing how pretty you can make them with different decorations. Just google, "scissors, pot holder" under images and you will see a lot of cute ideas.
Yours is one of the prettiest I have seen. Now, I want to go make more of these. I found some at the thrift store. Around Christmas, you will find all those Christmas ones, which are a fun way to show off your scissors.
The next is cute, too. Fold one over at the angle, and glue under the edging. This is perfect for scissors, and I even added straight pins, safety pins, and needles to the front. Again, magnets on the back lets you put them on the fridge or in my case the metal file cabinets that keep my sewing table up.
Learning from my mistakes will make your project more fun for gift giving. I will make more of these, but will make them out of two sided holders. The apple doesn't show in each of these and that is a shame. Also, I will make them with the hanger in the middle for the note holder, but with the hanger on the corner for the scissor holders.
This is a 20 minute project at best, so you could be making them all the way to the big day and not miss a beat.
Disclaimer: I said they are .50 each, but that is just for the pot holders. If you add a pen, scissors, and note pad, you are probably looking at 1.50 to 1.75 for each present. That is still pretty "Thrifty and Fun"!
Hope you N-JOY this.

Love your kitchen magnets idea for this, Sandi! You could also fold the lip on the non-angled one down, sew on a huge button for the loop to go over and you'll have a safe and secure refrigerator eyeglass case.
I will be making kitchen scissor holders to hang on the wall for Christmas this year. You take a potholder, a regular sized one, and fold it to a cone shape like an ice cream cone.

I remember seeing those in Woman's Day magazine a while back. Here's a version featured here on ThriftyFun:
I was going to give you the same instructions Kaelle shows links for. My mother still makes these. And, by the way, she lives in Orlando!
How can I make a magnetic 2 scissor holders using 1 potholder?
Here is what I did. It's super easy and just takes a bit of hot glue.
