Scissor and Paper Edger Holder
I wanted a way to organize and store the specialty scissors used for trimming paper for scrap booking and other projects. I came up with the idea presented here.
Approximate Time: 1 to 2 hours
- recyclable corrugated cardboard
- cutting tools (craft knife, box cutter)
- band saw
- decorative elements
- First, cut corrugated cardboard into 4x4 inch squares.
- Use band saw if available, if not, use craft/box knife.
- Cut as many pieces as you need. My project required 3 pieces for each scissor, plus 2 end pieces.
- Glue pieces together with white glue. I added 4x4in. pieces of cardstock between every third piece as separators.
- Place end pieces on cube, then add weight to the cube and let dry for a few hours.
- Decorate the cube if desired, use colored paper, cloth, collage pictures from magazines, etc.

Wonderful idea! I loose my scissors nearly eve other day. Now I'll be able to find them & they will stay sharp too! Instead of building a holder, I will put several pairs of scissors in with all the knives.

Great idea! Maybe glue fabric remnants or decoupage pictures from magazines, etc. to dress it up the sides?
