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

Supplies:

  • recyclable corrugated cardboard
  • cutting tools (craft knife, box cutter)
  • band saw
  • glue
  • cardstock
  • decorative elements

Instructions:

  1. First, cut corrugated cardboard into 4x4 inch squares.

  2. Use band saw if available, if not, use craft/box knife.

  3. supplies
     

  4. Cut as many pieces as you need. My project required 3 pieces for each scissor, plus 2 end pieces.

  5. cutting scissor slots
     

  6. Glue pieces together with white glue. I added 4x4in. pieces of cardstock between every third piece as separators.

  7. gluing

  8. Place end pieces on cube, then add weight to the cube and let dry for a few hours.

  9. assembled holder
     

  10. Decorate the cube if desired, use colored paper, cloth, collage pictures from magazines, etc.

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?
