Discover Your Scissors
Through the centuries, many people have used their scissors to express their moods and emotions, by creating pieces of art. Some have become rich and famous with their cuttings.
It is recorded that in the 16th century a scissorcutter in Holland received four thousand florins for one of his cuttings, a handsome sum even by today's standards.
Many people start out cutting the heads of their family and friends in silouette, and later advance to other designs, often expanding on a favorite theme in life.
Religion, music, politics and caricatures are often illustrated with the scissors. The possibilities are endless, and all you need is a pair of scissors from your home and a piece of paper. What are you waiting for? Good luck fellow cutter-upper-to-be.
