Mummy’s Scissors

Mummy’s Scissors is “A Blogging Experiment in Viral, DIY Style, started by Roz of Clothes, Cameras and Coffee.

As she said in her original post,

What? (the product)
‘Mummy’s scissors’ is an outsize, statement pendant, designed by me last year, from recycled materials: mini scissors ‘mummified’ in tiny silk bandages.

What? (The ‘campaign’!)
This is a DIY, make-your-own, wear or give away ‘product’. I’d like to see if it’s possible to ‘market’ the concept of an unusual but easy to make piece of jewellery that is made and worn, but NOT sold.”

So this is my scissor mummy. Again, excuse my poor photography; I used my webcam this time… probably won’t again, haha!! I probably need to invest in a new camera at some point!

I didn’t have any more ribbon, or a chain, so I just looped my scissors on to some beads. I think it adds to the look!

Will you make some for yourself? Or is this the perfect Christmas present for someone you know?

Let me know if you make some yourself!!!

But if you HAVEN’T… get ready. Continue reading


I’m sorry for not posting in almost a week!!! But I’ve almost finished all my uni assignments for the year!

Now don’t get excited and think that this means that I am all yours until March… On Monday night, I’ll be beginning my First Overseas Trip. Which means I’ll be away for a month or so. I might try to pop on every now and then, with a picture or two from the Overseas Trip, but I can’t guarantee anything!!

(After that, though, I will, indeed, be all yours until March.)
