We've partnered with some great companies to assemble the prize packages:
The scissors' handles are symmetrical to fit both left and right-handed users, and their extra large size means you can fit up to three fingers in a loop! The sharpened tip is great for cutting smaller pieces accurately, and the straight-edge blades slide easily through fabric, grabbing it and cutting cleanly.
