Scissor Charms

I use my extra beads and charms to make what I call Scissor charms.

There are many people in my community that quilt and also do a lot of scrapbooking together.

They put these charms on their scissors so they can distinguish their scissors from their friends’ scissors

I have also had my customers use them on the tab of a soda can so they know which drink is theirs at a party, or put them on a bookmark, your purse zipper, a cell phone – I am sure you can also come up with some nifty ideas too.

I sell these for $5.00 and it’s a good way of making extra money at my craft fairs.

I have even added the sterling silver alphabet beads to them to add their initials. I charge extra for the sterling silver.

It’s so much fun to bead, and to make things that are a fun item.

Great ideas! I’ve been using my orphan beads on ribbon necklaces, but your ideas are more universal.

Ingenious Idea!
by: Rachel

I love it and I know a lot of people who would agree with me! That is a great idea and design!

Alphabet Charms too!
by: Virginia Vivier –

I make a lot of charm bracelets using letters to spell out the recipient’s name or numbers for their birthdate. I have some left over letters and numbers that could be put to good use using your idea!

Thanks for helping generate some creative juices towards money making ideas!

I actually started making Scissor Charms a little over a year ago. My sister has Scrapbooking Crops once a month, and she actually came up with the idea for me to make them for her ladies. But, I like the way you do yours. I have had success with mine. They are fun and profitable.

How creative!

What a neat idea! I’m always encouraging those I work with to “think outside of the box”, and I think you’ve come up with a fantastic “out of the box” gem!
