I Got Craft Scissors!!

Thank you all so much for your awesome comments! =D
I love reading what you have to say, compliment or constructive criticism! you all rock!! I love looking at other blogs, and do often. Don't mind me if I don't comment as often as I should.. =(
I should start doing shout-outs, yes? Yes. I'll find a blog and next post, they will get a shoutout! =D

So I finally picked up some craft scissors, as the title so says!
I got 12 pairs for 7 bucks at Michael's. So you could imagine they probably suck..They do a bit!!
But I don't care, it worked perfectly for what I wanted!

These are the designs it came with. I couldn't pass this up. Even though quality does not go hand in hand with quantity on this one!

But they are sooo pretty! =D Check out those COLORS!!

This is the mani I created with one. I wanted different greens, but I work with what I have. Now I suddenly have green cremes of various shades on my wishlist!
I used Orly Lucky Duck, and Sally Hansen Green With Envy(which of COURSE looks too yellow in this..=/ )

Let me share with you some tips I found, especially with working with the cheapy scissors:
 Fold down the edge of the tape just a bit. I've folded it a lot more here than I should, just to show what I mean.

 Place the tape to a paper. One that is more slick works the best! I used a Kohl's advertisement that the tape will peel off of easily. Cut the paper into the size and shape you are looking for.

 All size pieces work!! Peel the tape off the paper using the folded edge you made.

And there you have it! Use the tape however you like it. Don't forget to remove the tape while the lacquer is still wet, or it won't work nearly as well!
