The 2014 CHA Show has come and gone and once again, it has proved to be an exciting event.
Fiskars was showing their most recently released scissors in the booth. They are the Fiskars Thick & Heavy Amplify Shears. They come in three sizes and are created to cut through a variety of heavy materials. The scissors are currently available on Amazon.com, and you can read our reviews of the 10″ size, 8″ size and the 6″ size (complete with video) here on Craft Critique!
I was told they would cut through denim, leather, light metals, soda cans, cork, corrugated card board and other similar heavy materials. They had a “Make & Take” that featured the scissors in creating a project.
We started by cutting the heavy burlap into the correct size square. Then I used one of their punches to cut out these cool floral shapes out of old book pages.
Then I painted them with some fun mists and alcohol inks. I still need to fluff the petals on the flower and add a few embellishments.
Overall I like the look of the project. The scissors were so easy to use and did a great job of cutting the various elements they had available to test them on.
