Stampin' UP! Paper Snip Scissor Sharpener Tip


I have quite a collection of Stampin' Up! Paper Snips and (now retired) Craft/Ribbon Scissors.  And they ALL needed sharpening.  We found this "Work Sharp" brand Knife & Tool sharpener and it came highly recommended, so we bought one.  It is great!!  You don't need the special edition one, but that's what they had so we got it.  I'm thankful for my handyman hubby who took the time to sharpen all my scissors for me!!


Scissor Sharpening tip: Work Sharp knife sharpener is fabulous for my Stampin' Up! paper snips!


You may be wondering why I have so many pairs of paper snips and craft scissors ... at classes or other events I like to have a tool caddy with all the stamping and crafting essential tools, like Paper Snips, bone folders, paper piercer, Snail, Fast Fuse and Multipurpose Glue.  If you need any of these handy crafting supplies, you'll find product photos at the bottom of this blog post, linked to my online store.  Just click any photo to shop now!

I really wish Stampin' Up! still offered the Craft & Rubber Scissors as well as the Craft Scissors - perfect for cutting ribbon.. but they are retired now.  I still love mine!

Work Sharp brand sharpeners are available at Cabela's, on Amazon or at some hardware stores.

Thank you for this. I too have a stack that need sharpening.

I have a lot of scissors too but not as many as you do. but I know you need them for classes. I love my craft and rubber scissors too. Glad I got them a long time ago. Hooray for your husband to sharpen all your things. Interesting gadget! I paid quite a lot to have mine done. Thanks for the information.

I love that your husband sharpened all of your scissors. Thank you for sharing bits or your family with us, you have a pretty terrific family Patty!


I am so thankful I have those retired scissors. The big ones cut through ribbon like it's nothing! I wish Stampin' Up would bring them back! And thanks for the tip. I'm sending Steve out to buy that nifty scissor and knife sharpening gadget! And you have one impressive collection of scissors! Wow! As always, love you and thank you for sharing!
