I am so excited and just have to share! I went to Michaels tonight to pick up some Velcro, because it seems I NEVER have enough. I go through Velcro in my room like you would not believe! I always put Velcro, and especially Velcro dots, on my classroom wish lists. The dots are awesome, of course, because they are so easy, but they are so much more expensive.
My main reason for avoiding the regular Velcro strips has been the pain of cutting it. I just can’t stand the goopy scissor problem, and the scissors get all sticky after only a couple of cuts.
So since Michaels actually has a Velcro section, I decided to see if they had any brilliant Velcro cutting devices. As it turns out, several brands of scissors make non-stick scissors! I chose the cheapest pair I could find, which was made by Fiskars, as I was dubious.
Well, I tried them out tonight, and they are magic! I cut at least a hundred pieces of the fluffy side Velcro, which is always the worst, and every cut was smooth, clean, and easy. No goop on the scissors, and they cut like they are cutting paper!
I have no relationship with Velcro and get no kick backs from Fiskars – this is just my own elated experience. This pair of scissors is the best $5.99 I have spent in a long time!
Do you have any great buys to recommend?
