You might think of the brand Vintaj as being strictly for jewelry making, but their products are great for paper crafting, too.

I own a lot of scrapbooking embellishments, but I still run into the problem of not finding just the right piece for a project. No problem! I used supplies from Vintaj to make the perfect scissors for this fun, handmade card.


  • Ranger - Vintaj Foil Sheets - Metal-pressions - Silver
  • Ranger - Vintaj Patinas - Open Stock - Onyx
  • Xcut A5 Die Set 20/Pkg-Haberdashery
  • American Crafts Patterned Paper and Chipboard sticker (find all patterned paper here)
  • Martha Stewart Scoring Tool
  • Adhesive

Die cut the scissors from the foil sheet. Paint the handles black with the patina.

Use patterned paper and the scoring board to make a 4 x 6 card. Cut a 4x6 panel for the front, and cut a horizontal line midway through it. Use the scoring tool to make the flaps, and glue them down. Attach the scissors and adhere the panel to the front of the card.

Embellish the card with the chipboard sticker flower. Stamp the sentiment on a sticker tag and attach.

The adhesive backed foil sheets are perfect for paper crafts! I love that I can create and paint my own metal embellishments, then simply peel off the backing and attach the embellishment to my card. I can't wait to cut and color more fun shapes with these tools!
