Scissors to Cut Things Up (Tutorial) :)

Well you HAVE to have scissors if you're gonna make a quilt. 

I didn't like the cookie cutter I had for a pair of scissors, so I printed out a picture of a good looking pair of scissors and made my own template. 

First I made an outline of the entire pair of scissors. Then I filled in the handle.
(There should be some dry time in between each of these steps.)



To give the blades a 3D look, I filled in the lower blade first and let it dry.

Add a lighter color to the inside of the handles. I thought this gave them a more "real" look.


Add the upper blade....


Add the screw on top of the upper blade.....


Here's the fun part. Paint the blades with dry silver luster dust. I'd always done it wet before.....and I LOVE how much better it looks dry.
(Make sure your icing is good and dry before you do this step!)


And the finished cookies......


Guess what?! I got a new camera.......both for my Ukraine trips and for cookie photography! Since I'm not a photographer, I didn't want one that I'd have to take classes to use......so I opted for an awesome point and shoot. It's a Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS.
Ohhhhhh.....I can't wait to try it out on cookies this week. :) And it has quality HD video.....so you may start seeing some videos from me too. :))))))

I hope you have unmeasurable blessings this week.
I'm going to be VERY VERY busy (only 11 days until I leave for Ukraine), but I'll try to keep up here. :)

Awesome! I love the scissors. What colors do you use to make the silver on the blade? Congratulations on the new camera and your exciting trip!

 Thanks everyone. :) Lorraine.....silver is made with a tiny touch of black gel. Add it sparingly until you get the shade you'd like.

I took the 12:00 Old city tour. There is modern city tour at 16:00, too.
The guide was a friendly due with typical Ukrainian pronunciation, that is well understood yet. He brought in good info all the time and kept conversing with the diverse group that we were. Moreover, he helped me plan well the time needed for my return, as I had a flight to catch.
I recommend joining these tours, as you can always have a walk around the sites, but it is much, much better learning more about them by a guide, that has lived there and can bring some personal stories, too.
We discovered with http://www.privatetoursinistanbul.com and we highly suggest to anyone whom would like to visit that site.
