Amy's Scissors Fob Swap
Please email your lovely hostess Amy to sign up for this swap.
This is a finished item swap for a fob that can be attached to a pair of scissors.
Anything suitable to be attached to a pair of embroidery scissors. Ideally, a fob should be slightly heavier than the scissors, so that when the scissors fall, they will not land on their delicate points. However, some people do not like the extra weight when they use their scissors and you fob may be lighter. Take care that your fob can be easily pulled through its own strap, so that the fob can be looped onto any pair of scissors.
You can use any method or materials to complete your fob. Ask your partner before you employ jewelry findings or hardware for connecting the fob. Although a lobster claw clasp may be very functional, it might mar or scratch the scissors when attached and used.
There are many methods and designs for making scissor fobs! Check the bottom of this page for examples, samples and ideas.
Ask you partner what interests them! Since this is planned as part of a series of swaps, make sure that you ask your partner about color and style, since the items will all be used together.
You are NOT expected to send a pair of scissors, just the fob.
