I grabbed the mini album I'm putting together for the grandparents, my paper trimmer, adhesive, good to go, right? Nope, forgot my scissors. So here I sit, in Starbucks, using the itty bitty scissors on my teeny tiny swiss army knife keychain to scrapbook. Whatever works, right?
I'm sure there are more peas who have had to make do, so let's hear your stories!

hey, necessity is the mother of invention! I've had to make do a few times in the past before I could buy what I really needed to do something. Can't remember now what it was, first time I've sat up for more than 10 minutes in the last 4 days.

That is awesome! I've never scrapbooked away from home, but if I do I'll be sure to remember my scissors.
|Posted: 1/13/2013 9:00:22 PM|No weird looks that I know of, but I was busy crafting and watching a glitter girl episode!
I knew my fellow peas would find the humor in the situation!

I had a tiny pair of scissors that I kept in my purse. Used them until they broke. That being said I would love some fold up scissors with the microtips. I wonder if anyone makes something like that?
