jen : painted fish studio

i've had success using a tracing wheel (i had to look up what it was called because i'm not a sewer!). i use a ruler, and run the wheel along the edge and it does a pretty good job of perforating paper. maybe rustic is a good word for it?


How small are the peforations from the Fiskars scissors? I'm curious to see the results.


I've been considering those Fiskars ones for awhile now...I just might have to break down & get them now because sometimes I like things uniform & not too rustic :)


Here's an example of the Fiskars cut: http://www.flickr.com/photos/donovan_beeson/5897657629/in/set-72157600845966133/


I found a pair of Stamp scissors on the WalMart app. I went ahead and ordered them, do there are 2 pair left. They are Dovecraft Creative Edge Stamp scissors sold by Modellbahn Ott Hobbies Inc.

Looks like it has a curve connected by a line connecting to a curve. Not quite what USPS stamps’ edges look like. But now I can download some of the member stamps once I buy the sticker paper.
