office supply fave // pinking shears

pinking shears

I love office supplies. From different types of pens to colorful tape and everything in between. I especially love unconventional office supplies. So, I thought I’d share with you some of my unconventional favorites and how + why I like to use them.

Like my pinking shears. Lately, I’ve been getting lots of use of out of them. Originally intended for cutting fabric to reduce fraying, these specialty scissors create a nice zig zag pattern. I use them to dress up tags, envelopes and washi tape. I recently used them to cut down extra long glassine bags. They can be used on all sorts of things, and I often reach for them instead of standard scissors. I love the extra oomph they give to straight edges.

    I love this! and i even have a pair at home and never even thought of using it. Clearly you have more use because it prettifies your packaging. Great idea. Thanks for sharing.
