my scissor's keeper...

For my first Glue Arts project, I received some "Tailor Made" materials from Cosmo Cricket and some May Arts ribbon! I loved the scissors on the fabric, so I wanted to make something that had to do with sewing or crafting.

Glue Arts has an amazing tape runner that is actually called, "Fabric Bond". All you do is run it on the back of your material and iron it on. It's awesome! The Glue Gun is interchangeable, so you just pop out your regular adhesive and pop in the fabric cartridge, just like a tape runner!

Anyway....I scoured the internet to try and come up with a fun project and look for any sewing ideas to use with this scissor fabric. When I saw this, I REALLY wanted to make one for myself! They were so adorable! Mine turned out a bit larger, but it was fun to make. Do you like her little striped granny glasses?
And yes, she has to have a bow, because with all these pretty colors, she has to be a girl! lol

I wrapped some May Arts ribbon around my Cutterbee scissors and left a long trail of ribbon, the reason being that my desk is always a mess and I am always losing my scissors! I am hoping that now I'll see the LONG ribbon sticking out from my mess somewhere! :)
Please stop by the Glue ARTS blog to see the step-by-step directions and patterns to make one of these!
