I tried this on a seven year old and it didn't work. I think there might be a sweet spot, taking into account trustworthiness and writing ability. Alternatively, you could spend seven years being kind an honest to a nephew or niece, just so you can pull this off.

New comic!

We’re still on the Fiskars Orange-handled Scissors 50th Anniversary party train and last week, when we asked you to share your Fiskars Orange-handled Scissors story, we knew there would be some talk of “the forbidden” and the “do not touch,” but seriously — that was the overwhelming theme! “Keep away from my scissors!” We should all just hold hands now and start a “Fiskars” chant. I feel like our next DIY should be a hollow book where you can hide your favorite Orange-handled Scissors.

Considering the “hands off” theme rang out loud and proud, we thought long and hard about a pretty (but possibly embarrassing) way to 1. make people think twice about taking your scissors; and 2. to dispel any ideas that the thief won’t be caught when the scissor owner realizes their prized possession is gone and they do a quick visual scan looking for said scissors. Aside from a loud alarm and a mini shock collar (kidding!), we thought a large — and perhaps a tad gaudy — tassel might dissuade any potential scissor thieves. We didn’t add bells to this DIY, but we did purchase them and may consider adding them if our Fiskars go missing again. Feel free to add them to yours from the get-go.

And again: “Calling all Orange-handled Scissors lovers!” Will you please share your Fiskars story with us in the comments below? Aside from being entered to win 1 of 4 awesome gift packs (DIY or design book + Orange-handled Scissors + Fiskars Kids Scissors) packed by yours truly, your feedback will be contributed to some weird scientific research and possibly a fancy pie chart around the different categories of orange-handled memories that I’m obsessed with creating.

Now, let’s DIY! — Caitlin

(P.S. We used beautiful yarn from Purl Soho and, of course, our beloved Fiskars Orange-handle Scissors!

Here are some of our favorite Fiskars Orange-handled Scissors snippets from you!

From Lynda, who always has a pair of Fiskars Orange-handled Scissors in her home:

“These scissors are classic. I still remember teachers guarding these scissors like they were lottery tickets.”

This one comes from Andrea, who explains her Fiskars Orange-handled Scissors “saved her from the dark consequences of procrastination as I sewed my way through my wedding veil a few hours before I was due at the church.”

“I’ve seen the sunrise at least a dozen times with my Fiskars by my side.”

And our final quote of the day comes from Sarah, who asks a profound question:

“Fiskars means scissors, or should it be scissors mean Fiskars?”

Add your story to the comments to be entered to win our Fiskars Orange-handled Scissors giveaway prize!

Who thought this was a good idea?


Or this?

(Never in my life have I so fervently hoped that a cake was chocolate.)


Or, Aunt Flo help us, this?

"So, when's the party?"

"At the end of the month."


Amy M., Jenna B., & Kim W., URQTs. At least, I like to think that you are. Not in a creepy way, of course, or like I know firsthand because I secretly stalk you or anything...that would just be weird. I mean, look, I'm just trying to give you a friendly compliment, in a completely platonic, non-stalker-esque kind of way, Ok? Ok. As you were.


Thank you for using our Amazon links to shop! USA, UK, Canada.
