A while back I was invited to make a 3D project for the Feb 2019 edition of Craft Stamper. Small wooden hearts were the challenge - and with it being the February edition and Valentines and all.....I just had to use broken scissors and a broken candle holder! I know, I'm a bit strange. But it made perfect sense to me! It was because I'd chosen a stamp 'Handle with care' that perfectly fitted the largest heart....and I thought my scissor handles would be a quirky fit for the 'handle' bit. At the same time I had also been teetering on whether to throw away the broken ceramic candle holder - there must be a way to use it, I thought, I'd paid good money for that, before dropping it, ooops! So .....here is the finished project.....
Sat looking at them for a while.....put the scissors in the broken candle holder hole....how can I make the scissors secure?

I cut fairly long sections of 4mm jewellery wire and twisted some spirals a few centimetres from the top of the wire. I used a tiny drill bit to drill a hole into the bottom of each of the hearts, then pushed the top of the wires into the holes, they were a really snug fit!
And good luck out there.
