Every crafter should have scissors in their toolbox. Scissors can be used for cutting materials, snipping tape or paper, or trimming fabrics.

When you choose well-built scissors, they will last longer and perform better. The blade material, hinge quality and sharpness are all factors that affect durability.

Inks play a vital role in the creative process. Inks are used for a wide range of purposes, including planner art and temporary tattoos.

Inks come in different forms, such as dye-based and water-based. Inks based on dyes are absorbed into the paper, giving it a muted colour. These inks can be used to distress and blend.
